Couture's best bet is to fake a lead overhand and shoot in for the takedown. Likewise I expect Toney to know that Couture doesn't plan on fighting him where hes strong.
Um...there is no clinching in boxing. Well there is a little where they hug each other then are broken up safely by the ref, no elbows in the break type thing. Randy is the master at the clinchgame on the fence not ropes. I doubt Toney will shine if Randy is dirty boxing and likely throwing knees and elbows. You just can't even compare the "fighting off the ropes" and clinching against a fence.
As for the faking a right hand and going for a takedown I can't argue with that, it may be what he ends up doing.

HOSS-Bork, you should spend more time brushing up on your MMA history, and less time complementing guys on how young their penises taste.
