Freddie Roach: The UFC Is Going To Use James Toney

Renowned boxing trainer Freddie Roach recently spoke to <a href=http://www.craveonline.com>Crave Online</a> about the MMA and the debut of James Toney in the UFC and Roach states his case that the UFC will be using Toney to prove a point in the boxing vs. MMA debate:<br><br>Crave Online: What do you think of MMA?<br><br>Freddie Roach: I had two guys fight last night. They had 5 MMA fights and 5 boxing matches each, so I'm around the fighters a lot. I like the standing part of it better. Two guys on the ground doesn't appeal to me but I understand there's a science to it. I've had a few fighters: Andre Arlovski, BJ Penn, Anderson Silva, Tito Ortiz and I work with those guys occasionally. They all have talent.<br><br>Crave Online: What do you think of James Toney in MMA (he just signed with UFC)?<br><br>Freddie Roach: I think they're using James as a way to say MMA fighters are better than boxers. If he fights a quality ground guy, once he goes to the ground he's gonna get killed. But If a guy chooses to stand up with James, James is gonna destroy him. That's why they call him "Lights Out". I really don't think there's one fighter in MMA that could stand with James. <br><br>
