i just think the couture fight was perfect for what it was. one of MMA's top guys against one of boxings top guys. from what i understand toney doesnt want an mma career. he just wanted to try and KO one of the top dogs.
so, who do you really think would just straight up stand with toney?
JDS could have a ground game that we just havent seen, he does train with black house, cain is a wrestler, maybe a CC or a kongo?
Without question I believe JDS, Rampage Jackson, Anderson Silva would take the challenge. We know all 3 of them think they can box hell JDS wanted to actually box while he didnt have anyone to fight if you remember. Rampage Jackson spoke about moving up to hw to find people to bang with before his fight with Lyoto. Anderson Silva aspires to be like RJJ.
I dont think that every fighter they can find for James Toney will take the highroad to victory and exploit him. Some guys simply want to test their hands otherwise what is the point? Beating JT in any other area other than standup really doesn't say much.
