Dana Expects Randy to Squash James Toney’s Head at UFC 118

(Video courtesy YouTube/Sportsnet)

Don’t let the on-air smile and half-hearted chuckle fool you, UFC president Dana White doesn’t really think James Toney’s remarks about wanting to knock him out the next time he sees him are cute or endearing.

If you didn’t happen to catch the segment above broadcast on Rogers Sportsnet on the weekend with the luxury of subtitles, here’s what Toney said about Dana in an interview he did with last week.

"If he don’t like me, FUCK HIM! But you know what? After the fight if he gonna run his mouth at me like a little kid, I’m gonna knock his ass out too right after the fight. He gettin’ it. Dana White, your ass gettin’ it. I ain’t playin’ wit ‘chu. I might get you at the weigh-ins if you get in my face," Toney explained. "I ain’t playin’ wit ‘chu man. This is serious. You ran your mouth at the wrong dude. I’m not Rashad Evans. I’m not Quinton Jackson. I’m not gonna kiss yo’ ass; I’m gonna beat yo’ ass. You can’t talk to me like I’m a bitch. I’m gonna show you."

Taking a "we’ll fucking see" approach, White explained that the reason why he stacked the rest of the card at UFC 118 is he doesn’t expect Randy to take very long to finish "Lights Out" and that he didn’t want fans walking away disappointed by the semi-main event. Oh, snap!

"That’s my boy. That’s how he got himself in this mess. He doesn’t need to worry about me.  What he needs to worry about is Randy Couture. James Toney chased me around talking a huge amount of smack about the UFC, about MMA fighters, and obviously about me, and he got himself a fight. Listen, I’ve been in the fight game a long time and I know anything can happen and James Toney is a real guy," White said. "The reason he’s getting this shot [is] he’s a real guy ho’s been one of the best boxers in the world for years. But here’s EXACTLY….If you’re thinking about buying this pay-per-view, I built a huge card around this fight for one reason. Here’s what I expect, "Are you ready? Are you ready? Let’s get it on!" Couture goes in double-legs him, puts him up against the fence and squashes his head, okay? That’s what I’m expecting for this fight."

I wonder how many bosses would take the same approach to being threatened by an employee. Then again, this isn’t an accounting firm we’re talking about here, so I guess it’s like comparing apples to oranges.

Here's how I hope it will go down:
I hope it's a 3-round war that shows Randy's still one of the best fighters in the world, but that Toney could be a decent MMA fighter if he sticks with it. Couture win by choke-out or by points.
Then I want to see big-mouth Toney get a shot against Carwin, and get knocked out cold in round one, just like everybody else (except, of course, Lesnar).

But in reality, I think it will be a quick fight. Either Toney will catch Randy with a KO punch, or Randy will tap him out on the ground, but it won't get past round 2.

i think it's pretty fuckin' rad that dw quoted big john mccarthy for that little bit.

And mma gloves offer less protection for your hand. How funny would it be if Toney breaks his hand on the first punch and quits.

Also, I meant Brock would be there as Dana's personal protection. I guess if Toney wins he could call out Brock, but if he loses to Randy I don't see how he is gonna wrangle a fight with Brock.

Sport Science compared MMA gloves and boxing gloves a while back. They concluded that the impact force generated was nearly identical. The effectiveness of the padding matched that. While not definite, as the control changed, it's worth noting.

One of the biggest differences is that MMA gloves are easier to get through when someone is blocking.

They both suck equally to get hit with.

good analysis, Toney doesn't use much head movement
UEG Donkey- August 11, 2010 at 3:30 pm
I can't imagine DW giving Toney a bout against Lesnar although the thought of it is amazing

I'm betting that Brock Lesnar is at the event ringside and that if Dana enters the cage Brock goes with him.

My best advice to Randy is this: Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

That,... and master the skill of how to throw a devastating Cut-kick.

Toney runs his uneducated mouth too much. Anyone who'd talk the trash he did about White, threatening bodily harm, he's in for one huge surprise and I, for one, can't wait to see it. He's so fat, it's comical. And he talks like he's still in the 1800's.

The reason Dana White is laughing at james Toney is cause #1;
James Toney is a fucking joke in a fat suit.
#2 Dana knows damn well if Toney loses enough brains cells to be STUPID enough to try and knock Dana out security and about 50 "Real" fighters would swarm his fat marble mouthed talking stanking fatass so fast his head would swim.
#3 Dana White and ZUFFA would own everything James Toney ever had even his nasty cigar. It would be the second dumbest move of his life...the first thinking his 1 overrated skill is gonna save him from a beatdown.

Bank on the fact this will be a "one and done" deal.

Perhaps the added weight

Fair enough. I appreciate you looking at the articles I have mentioned. I respectfully take the opposite position that he is an old piece of turd.

I found the recent studies fascinating in that the finding is one that is counter-intuitive but matches my own experience. Due to my overbite, despite amatuer boxing and some wasted youth I have never been knocked unconscious. The closest I ever got to being knocked out was while wearing gloves and headgear. While this certainly has something to do with quality of opponent I had never before or since had such a blanket feeling of a dull numbness as opposed to the usual sharp are clear pain of the ungloved hand.

Booboo on you for jumping on Nicky's bandwagon. I am not comparing 4oz gloves to sparring gloves. I have been hit with 10oz gloves before and the shit still hurts. As BossNasty would say, "Take Nickys Dick out yo mouth and replace it with mine!"
Stak40- August 11, 2010 at 11:51 am

First, no need to get sensitive, nobody is acting tough. If you have read anything i have posted in the past you would know that i am a firm believer that talking tough is nothing but talk and actually doing is all that matters. Plus your beep beep comment was beyond super gay.

Second i took your advice and did a little research and surprisingly i found evidence for both arguments. Much of what you said is correct but what i found that supports my beliefs is that 4oz gloves allow you to focus more of the impact, resulting in a higher chance of a knockout, opposed to a boxing glove which covers more surface and less of a focuse impact and results in a little less chance of a knockout.

Believe what you want but end story is Toney has the ability to knockout anybody in the UFC.

Guys, guys, relax. You're both wrong.

Case in point, Mumbles and The Iceman. Both have got hit a ton with different gloves(respectively)yet they're both semi retahhhted. Highly scientific stuff, I tells ya. Now go in peace.

I don't think the Mercer fight proved much. Truthfully, I don't know if a HW boxing champion winning a single MMA match against anyone proves that boxing is better than MMA. I would imagine that any top ranked boxing HW, current or former, with 4oz gloves, could potentially KO Randy Couture, or Brock Lesnar, or just about anyone if they catch them correctly... well, maybe not Roy Nelson They are big guys, with hard punches, and small gloves. If they want to prove they are better than MMA, win 2 or 3 fights in a row against top guys. Not just a one-off KO. And possibly dominate from bell to bell, keeping the fight where they want it, and fighting their fight. That would prove something to me.

Actually, if boxers really want to prove the superiority of their style over MMA, then have someone like Mayweather or Pacquiao, or one of the smaller champions come in and fight. There are less likely to be quick KO's at those weights, and I'd love to see them prove themselves in a drawn out fight. Trouble is, we all know it wouldn't be drawn out, ecause the boxer would lose fast.

I'm with knucklesamitch, though, in that I would love to see Randy toy with him for a couple rounds, where he just tosses Toney all over the place. Kind of like when Randy was on Pros vs. Joes, and just submits guys as many tims as he can in 5 minutes. Randy should try not to get the fight stopped by mounting Toney and beating his face. He should just pick him up and slam him over and over. He should rag doll his ass from corner to corner.

OOOOOOOO snap son!!!! Nickyroose just got STAK40'd!!!!!...I agree with nickyroose, people compare mma gloves to 16oz sparring boxing gloves....theres a big difference between 8oz or 10oz pro boxing gloves and you do feel the knuckles right thru them....also you gotta think theres atleast 6oz in the laces brah!
