    Agree with what your saying. It isnt an mma fight.

    but a just striking fight with mma gloves inside a cage?!? sign me up for that. Id love to watch and participate in that if that became a branch off of mma.

    Yikes.
    If Ken Shamrock is a legend in MMA then Toney is certainly Toney is a legend of boxing. cant say how i would put them. Must have got caught up in the way this fight was being promoted. We've heard them say that a lot.

    This fight hurts my heart.
    Yes boxing has been around for a while cannot blame toney for that. Ken was a pioneer, but who accomplished more in their sport? toney clearly.

    There was a lot more talent in boxing as well, more top opponents to get through to get to the top. Ken also didnt have the luxury of drug tests as well if you know what I mean.... He may be a natural MW or LHW with extra muscle.
