Liddell KO'd him because he had wrestling to force a stand up fight.
Exactely. It's 2006, and people are still even engaging in this debate? A fight top tier boxer (which Toney IS NOT at hw, he's among the best of a lousy division) vs. a world class (which Tito is without a doubt) MMA'er with fantastic wrestling does not even go 3 minutes.
Toney would have to change his stance, with might throw off his whole game, as a traditional boxing stance is prime for takedowns. Just that alone wins the fights for Tito, or any MMA'er. Do we even have to examine what happens when a boxer gets mounted against the fence?
