Wait, the UFC Actually Made James Toney an Offer? And He Turned It Down?!


(Looks like someone is getting ready to do some shucking and ducking.)

After weeks of stalking UFC president Dana White and regaling us all with stories of side check kicks and training under his father, an original “death fighter,” James Toney says he finally received an offer to fight in the UFC. The problem? That offer “was a joke,” according to Toney, who told FightHype.com that he’s decided to look at it as a sign that DW isn’t serious about signing him to a contract, which is weird because we expected a pro boxer with no MMA experience whatsoever to get several millions of dollars upfront.

Toney apparently expected the same, despite the fact that MMA fighters still don’t pull the kind of paychecks that even old, chubby boxers do. But don’t worry, he says he’s already aware of that. He just doesn’t seem to think it should apply to him:

“…this offer was laughable. That’s why I wanted the camera guy in the room with us when I sat down with Dana, so the fans would know I was serious and if it didn’t happen, it wasn’t because of me.”


That’s right. It’s not because of Toney, who admits that he turned down an offer but won’t say exactly what that offer was. In the maze of scar tissue and chicken nuggets that is Toney’s brain, the fault lies with the person who offered him too little money to do something that he has, as of yet, demonstrated no real ability to do.

This should tell us what kind of person we’re dealing with here, and why we shouldn’t be surprised if he turns out to be more semi-coherent talk than action.

What else really needs saying beyond this?

Oh wait I know... go back to rambling on and on about how fucking pretty you think you are James. You'd have gotten your ass handed to you in the octagon anyway man... massive scale.

UFC fan would never have the balls to say that in the real world (not on the internet) because he would get fucking destroyed. Even though James Toney is a stupid, irrelevant piece of shit that would get smashed by Strikeforce's LW division, calling him a nig or anyone for that matter is ignorant and childish.

Welcome to Logan, as everyone else has stated, well played sir. Brilliant idea.

All those fake tough guy anonymous meetings haven't helped UFC fan one bit, I see.

Isn't it weird how a gay black man like UFC fan constantly uses racial and homosexual slurs?
RPS13- January 18, 2010 at 2:30 pm
fat irrelevant fuck
HEY- January 18, 2010 at 2:28 pm
Give this guy a net and a trident and he'd be a CONTENDAH.

You are a class act UFC Fan, must be fun being a closet racist on the internet.
El Guapo- January 18, 2010 at 1:26 pm
Guess I won't be getting my belated Christmas present of watching Kimbo Fergie Ferg Slice and Marble Mouth Toney wrassle, side check kick/spinning superman backfist eachother, gas out and gas out some more. And then demand a rematch.

Would've put those SuperHulk tourneys to shame, too. Oh well. I still got Herschel Walker..

+1 more for welcometoLogans idea.

@ UFC Fan, dont do that dude.
schizo310- January 18, 2010 at 12:18 pm
Welcome to Logan... yeah. I have to parrot the "genius idea" comment one more time.

Robocop LOL!!! Pudding indeed... it's a shame we couldn't get Bill Cosby to do the commentary.

One more idea... send him to fight in Japan. Freak show match with Hong Man Choi. Sounds like Dream's style. Or have a Dream production in the U.S. since Toney would probably consider it too insulting to be asked to fight in another country... or maybe just too much effort.

I said it before and I will say it again: this is one stupid nigger.
Maybe NOW you self absorbed morons get it.
frndlylion- January 18, 2010 at 11:51 am
He's not about the let the world see how devastating his side check kick can be as a weapon in the octagon for free!!!!
Pound Sand- January 18, 2010 at 11:01 am
where's strikeforce to sign him give him a ten count

"If Nelson took top position on him, it'd look like someone dropped a case of vanilla and chocolate pudding on the mat."

This.
portland mma- January 18, 2010 at 10:45 am
mthomas that logic only works if you've ordered a PPV because of a really unknown fighter making his debut.
Robocop Didnt Tap- January 18, 2010 at 10:38 am
Deep down, I was praying for a Roy Nelson/James Toney fight. If Nelson took top position on him, it'd look like someone dropped a case of vanilla and chocolate pudding on the mat. :(

Oh Dana. Sometimes i love you and sometimes I don't. Right now I do, even though I'm sure you offered Toney way more than anyone thinks he deserves. But, it was still enough to insult him, which is what counts. Now just figure out how to get him in the cage anyway. Maybe Dana could publicly taunt him...
mthomas- January 18, 2010 at 10:25 am
I'll tell you what's "laughable": The idea of this guy even getting a shot in the UFC with no professional exprerience whatsoever, when there are hundreds of guys out there who would put on an exciting fight and would jump at the chamce to fight on a UFC card for 3 and 3. THAT's Laughable!

@ Welcome to Logan

Amazing.

What Welcome to Logan said.

I wish there was a way to get Toney to read some MMA blogs. I want him to feel acute shame at how much fun is being made of his side-check kicking ability.

Heck, I'd even volunteer as a tutor to help teach him how to read, just to have the pleasure.
