Preview: UFC 118 – Randy Couture vs. James Toney [Video]
Our friends at HeavyMMA.com have an early look at this weekend’s massive Pay-Per-View event, featuring an ex-boxer taking on a current Expendable.
This Saturday, live on Pay-Per-View, UFC 118 pits MMA legend (and star of the box office smash The Expendables) Randy Couture against James Toney, a man who thought to himself, “professional boxing just isn’t tough enough for me anymore. I need to get more than just fists involved here.” All kidding aside, Toney represents a huge boost to UFC—the first high profile pro boxer to make the leap.
Check out these highlights from the fight press conference (which also touts the Frankie Edgar vs. BJ Penn bout, taking place on Saturday night as well) , plus interviews with UFC president Dana White and Toney himself courtesy of HeavyMMA.com.
