Boxing Vet and one-time UFC fighter James ‘Lights Out’ Toney seems very eager to have a second shot in the octagon, claiming that he would sell more UFC 123 tickets than Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson as he looks to take on Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida as part of the main event.
Toney made his UFC debut at UFC 118 in Boston, losing to UFC Hall of Famer Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture via an arm triangle choke in the first round. President Dana White promised to never put on a ‘UFC vs Boxer’ show again, unless the Boxer has acquired enough MMA training to prove he’s a worthy opponent in the octagon.
From James Toney:
“If they want to sell any tickets in Detroit, they should put me on there. B—- a– Rampage can’t sell no tickets in my hometown.”
