I’m not sure what the betting odds are set at but I’m thinking that its pretty much a lock that James Toney’s interview segments from the UFC 118 countdown show that premiers tonight will include closed captioning. Apparently even Chael Sonnen can’t understand anything that comes out of Toney’s mouth and he figured out Portugese from an iPhone application in an afternoon.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that his trash talk on the show will include a bunch of insults towards Randy about how "he’s no legend" and he’ll fill in the remainder of his segment by talking about how great he is, how he’s going to "turn Randy’s lights out" and by referring to Couture at every turn as "princess."
I’m actually more interested in seeing the back and forth between Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn ahead of their rematch next weekend. BJ has seemed particularly ornery the past month or two and he seems to be taking the loss of his belt pretty hard. For his part, Edgar seems pretty tame in his interviews, but he seems to have a bit more swagger than he did heading into the first fight.
His quote about how he’s planning to fight his balls off against BJ seems like a strange choice of words, but he is from Jersey.
The show is on SPIKE TV at 12am ET.
