Video: James Toney Cuts His First Official UFC Promo, Calls Couture ‘Princess’

(Props: LRNINI)

Randy Couture told us last week that he didn’t view his UFC 118 fight against James Toney as "boxing vs. MMA." Well too freakin’ bad, because that’s exactly how the UFC is marketing it (0:18). While we’re very familiar with Dark Gable’s barely-coherent YouTube rants, this advance trailer for Edgar vs. Penn 2 is the first time that Toney’s been a part of an official UFC hype-clip. And he makes the most of his eight-second appearance, telling Randy, "Hey princess…I’mma gitch’oo," then slugging a speed-bag. Genius. Also, Frank Edgar raises the possibility of a second win over BJ Penn, and the narrator sounds like he’s stifling a burp during the "only on pay-per-view" line. If that’s not enough to get your $44.99, we don’t know what to tell you.

@ Almost North & ReX13

You two are obviously a couple of pimple-faced high school wrestling fanboys. I've forgotten more about MMA than you two idiots will ever know. If you think Couture is gonna win this on the wall you're a complete moron. Randy will dump Toney on his ass and pound on him. Toney will flop around on the ground like a fish out of water until he gets TKO'd, but he'll never be hurt. I'm a big fan of wrestling and of Couture. Couture is one of few wrestlers who takes chances and goes for the knockout. Unfortunately, too many wrestlers don't do that and it makes for boring fight.

hahahah "princess". Hope James understands how seasoned a vet he's taking on, dont matter if he is like 44.

I've been a Couture fan since he beat Belfort their first fight WAY back in the day. He is a gentleman and a great representative of the sport. With that said, James Toney is just too damned entertaining. I totally want Toney to win.

james toney's wet dream is to be featured on UFC'd be like 3 weeks of selling himself as a boxer

Is the Mumbles-Couture fight at 205?? Toney hasn't been that light in 7 years, which is like 30 in fat years..

Dare I say it, Mumbles FTW?

Not "Boxing vs MMA", but "Boxing vs The UFC"... I hate that anyone considers it being boxing vs mma in the first place, but it bothers me even more that it's boxing vs ufc.

sport vs sport is one thing, but boxing is already part of mma. so it should be called "one dimensional rookie martial artist vs experienced several time mma champ"

sport vs promotion? i don't get it. the ufc tries to make themselves seem like the only mma promotion. it's understandable, but also hindering the spread of accurate knowledge.

Griff you should try watching a fight or two, bust your MMA cherry and you might make some god damn sense.
ReX13- July 28, 2010 at 10:19 am
Griff>> Couture doesn't do lay and pray. He does wall and stall.

Welcome to CP, n00b.

Boxing vs. Lay-n-Pray. Watch an old man win a "fight" against another man by laying on him until the ref wets his pants with concern. "Oh my God! He's laying on him and slapping him! Stop the fight!"

Toney vs Tito for head of the century...

Why don't you stand in his face and give him shit about how he talks?

The man is a fighter with more fights than most fighters boxing or mma, he's not applying to be a college english professor or a speech therapist.

whats up with not giving bj or randy any face time, that's bs
petro- July 28, 2010 at 7:54 am
"Boxing vs The UFC" eh?

For an organization that trumps itself as being the educators of the sport of MMA, they're really taking a step backwards with this one.

Someone really should tell tooney to take out his mouthpiece when speaking.

All that I have running through my head as I watch this clip is Florida Evans yelling “James, JAMES!”
