At least now we know that the difficulty we had understanding James Toney’s previous video rants was not the result of poor video equipment and low production value. Dark Gable showed up on the Versus show "Sports Soup" to deliver yet another Dana White/UFC call-out, and once again we only understood every fourth word. Something about candy and Chuck Liddell being "daddy’s little girl." Other than that it was like trying to understand a voicemail that your very drunk friend left you at three a.m. You know he’s saying something about what a bitch his ex-girlfriend is, but the details remain hazy.
The most interesting thing about this is that it happened on Versus, which is the UFC’s newest cable network sweetheart. That’s not to say that the UFC necessarily instructed them to let Toney wander into their studio and then refuse to leave, but chances are good that they probably did not disapprove of the free publicity either, or else it might never have happened at all. Now we just sit back and wait for Toney’s guest spot on Spike TV’s "Blue Mountain State," where he ambles into the frame to interrupt a date rape scene by calling out "Simba Spice" and imploring the UFC to get their money right and make him a real offer.
