You may not understand the genius that is James Toney. In fact, some of thought you would never see ‘James Toney’ and ‘Genius’ in the same sentence. It’s alright. Your approval is not a requisite for James Toney to make an extraordinary amount of money in his MMA debut. According to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo!

Check out this clip of an illustrated James Toney being virtually indistinguishable from the real James Toney and get a kick of out Nick Ring on the same imaginary panel as the former IBF super middleweight champion.
