We should all sit back and think about the time when the ZUFFA hype train took us on a tumultuous journey through the inner-workings on James Toney’s mind and it all ended abruptly in an arm-triangle choke in less than four minutes. Everything James Toney said leading up to UFC 118 was untrue. He was incapable of submitting Randy, unable to catch him with an uppercut and Toney could not KO Randy from his back. However, James Toney did manage to place a cool guaranteed $750,000 in his bank account, not to mention any PPV dividends or sponsorship deals he worked out at UFC 118. The guy made enough money to purchase a third-world country. Too bad he wasn’t able to keep any of it. Minutes after UFC 118, the IRS met James Toney backstage in the arena and confiscated his entire purse for back taxes he owed. Toney’s voyage into the land of MMA was fraught with his first combative sports loss in three years — and he wasn’t even paid for it.
Now we have a new boxer that’s trying to grace the Octagon through the means of a talking enough smack that people will actually take notice — and they did — one of them being Dana White. At the yesterday’s UFC 159 Q&A, it appears that Dana White has no problem letting Tyson Fury into the UFC and even went so far to cordially invite him to get smashed by Cain Velasquez.
“You want to fight Cain? Come on over here,” White said today during a fan Q&A. “You will get smashed.”
What’s that? You don’t know who Tyson Fury is? Well fortunately for you we’ve provided a .gif of Tyson Fury landing a devastating uppercut on Tyson Fury. This guy wants to fight Cain Velasquez. We can’t even make this stuff up.
