Meet James Toney’s Secret Weapon

(Instead of bringing a knife to a gunfight against Couture, Toney’s bringing an unarmed combat instructor)

If you caught the UFC 118 countdown show last night, you were introduced to James Toney’s new trainer, Kenpo karate black belt and hand to hand combat instructor Trevor Sherman.

I was kind of taken aback since the last I had heard Toney was working with the beloved former plaintiff of a CP court case, Juanito Ibarra.

It turns out Ibarra and Toney parted company back in May, and since we can’t afford to defend another frivilous lawsuit after paying for new CP smart cars for Ben and I, we’ll say it was Ibarra’s choice to leave and just leave it at that. It’s not hard to believe, since he’s never been a difficult person to deal with in the past.

In case you missed the show, Sherman teaches empty hand combat to various U.S. government agencies including the FBI. 

What struck me as odd was the fact that he referred to submissions as "Brazilian locks" on the show and he said that he has shown Toney how to avoid them.

Really? After only a few months work? I’ve been training jiu-jitsu for a year or two and I still can’t avoid all of those Brazilian’s locks.

If you aren’t convinced that Sherman, who admits to never having trained an MMA fighter for a bout before is qualified, check out this demo reel from his American Kenpo Karate team and then say he isn’t a bad mo’fo:

All I know is after watching that clip, Randy is in trouble if they hand James a rubber knife during the bout or if they have a choreographed move competition.

f you caught the UFC 118 countdown show last evening, you're introduced to James Toney's new trainer, Kenpo karate black belt and hands to hands combat instructor Trevor Sherman.

I used to be kind of taken aback since the last I'd heard Toney was coping with the beloved former complaintant from the Clubpenguin court situation, Juanito Ibarra.

It calculates Ibarra and Toney separated company in May, as well as, since we're not able to have the ability to defend another frivilous suit after needing to purchase completely new Clubpenguin smart cars for Ben which i, we'll say it absolutely was Ibarra's choice to leave and basically allow it to relaxation only at that. You are able to believe, since he's never been a tough person to handle formerly.

Just just in case you missed the show, Sherman shows empty hands combat to several U.S. gov departments like the FBI.

What struck me as odd was the fact he recognized to distribution as "Brazilian locks" around the program which he mentioned he's proven Toney preventing them.

Really? For a couple of countless days work? I've been training jiu-jitsu for just about any few years which i still can't avoid all people Brazilian's locks.

Remember who said this, the fight goes down like this:

The fight starts and James refuses Randy's gesture to shake hands before the fight. Randy smiles, James scowls. James, having been trained to expect Randy's shoot for a double-leg takedown, is focused on that...which Randy also knows. Randy feigns the double-leg just 5 seconds in, James sprawls where Randy isn't there. Randy grabs a quick and tight gillotine. Just as James is about to tap, Randy lets go and backs away. Joe Rogan is going nuts because he sees the statement Randy is making, that he can have James anytime he wants him, that MMA is indeed superior to boxing. James is befuddled now and moves in striking range whereby Randy punishes his lead leg. James looks like he wants to be elswhere and the fight is only 45 seconds in. Randy shoots and gets the double-leg and pushes James to his back and James eats 3 elbows. James does not like elbows, they hurt worse than boxing gloves, he discovers. James rolls and gives up his back, Randy dutifully sinks in the rear-naked choke, and the camera zoons in to see Randy mouthing: Nighty nite, James.

I thought the secret weapon was stored in that cookie jar above his waist band.

put the knife away its not KFC, its UFC.

:D you're welcome James
Momoplata- August 25, 2010 at 11:38 am
can't wait to see James Toney twirl for 2 minutes infront of Randy before knifing him in the nut sack 40 times from every angle before he hits the ground.

what a better way to prove boxing is superior to MMA than with low blows with a knife.

Dang! You got to love those "spinning bitch slaps".

This Kenpo Karate stuff seems pretty effective against bald guys, so maybe it will give Mumbles an edge! Although Randy could just wear a toupee.

When I see hoes I just yell "Deep Throat!" and let the pieces fall where they may.

@ FratBoyFrank (sorry, it was a new and exciting way to fuck up your screen name)

Reedy= Randy, namsayin playa, wooftron twenny foe seffin son. Jeeeyaahhh. Playa.

I beens a drankin agains. What, itsa full moon out. Shheeeeeit.

Toney whilst was probably a good boxer, is old, slow and way over the hill. Randy would beat him whichever way Randy wanted to beat him.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Randy stood for a while.

Imagine... Randy by KO standing? That would be sweet.

Lets not forget Randy is coming off a 2 fight win streak and his loss to Brock was well into the 2nd round. And we know Brock is an absolute beast.

^ Shittaco's, now bitch or you gonna get fucked up, and I beleive Medrares monster stood in for Gus "The whining know fuck all Transexual" Johnson at Saturdays SF event
ghostboner- August 24, 2010 at 10:49 pm
But I loved them shit tacos! In fact, I decided that instead of "sammiches!", from now on whenever I see a female in public or on the intronets I'm gonna yell "Shittacos!" until MediumRare takes his metamucil and gets back to the basics. The basics being code for spicy poop in a crunchy shell. Sorry El Famous Burrito, but this tragedy must be fixed before I can join you in the rallying cry of sammiches again.

@MediumRare - so, uh, did you photograph this loch ness monster you created? If so, can you email it to Gus Johnson for me? Thanks.

I'm just glad they picked such a sweet original song to accompany the awesomeness involved in that video..

Dude... what the FUCK is going on with some of the comments in this article???

Anyways, "I was hoping Silva was going to bust out some next-level aikido shit" was some funny fucking shit! Nice one, ReX!

Juanito Ibarra offered to perform fellatio on me for drugs.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the most appropriate walk out song for Mumbles should be " Inna Gadda da vida" by Iron Butterfly( I think), just suits the whole vibe of the Mumbles sideshow
frndlylion- August 24, 2010 at 9:03 pm
You guys still don't get it. Toney has a weapon that he will use to win this fight and he told us all about it months ago.

Toney by TKO in the 2nd round via "side check kick"

You'll see.
fatbellyfrank- August 24, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Maybe Tony is SO smart he's doing this to fuck with Randy's head...and in reality he's been training BJJ since he was 10.
fatbellyfrank- August 24, 2010 at 8:38 pm
@ Medrare, you've given up the spicy shit taco's? is nothing on this fucken planet sacred!!!

Oh, and theres a product called metamucil, its like super concentrated fibre, the size, and array of color and texture this will add to your turds is mind boggling, you'll look down at this monster green brown and purple hued thing in the bowl and get all Steve Urkel " Did I do that?"
RPS13- August 24, 2010 at 8:23 pm
you can not teach someone with zero wrestling background how to prevent a randy couture takedown in 3 months.

Whatever credibility Sherman might have had flew right out the window immediately after I heard Saliva in the first few seconds of the video. Click Click Boom, and Saliva for that matter, wasn't good in 2001, in 2007 when that video is uploaded, and it certainly isn't any good today.
