James Toney’s camp predict Randy Couture will be hospitalised on August 28th

The men assigned to prepare boxing legend James ‘Lights Out’ Toney for his mixed martial arts and UFC debut against UFC Hall of Famer, Randy Couture have given their thoughts on the match up, adding that if Toney gets an opening, the MMA vet will end up in hospital.

Toney’s head coaches, former street fighter and boxing trainer John Arthur and social worker Trever Sherman, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

Sherman:

“If James gets an opportunity, they’re going to rush Randy to the hospital. I don’t think that anybody understands what [Toney] is or who he is. He needs six inches to hurt somebody really bad. I’ve been in his guard and he’s hit me, and I’ve got to tell you, it’s like getting hit by a car. He just shakes up your organs. And these are six inch body shots. He’s forgotten more about the mechanics of punching than most upper-echelon MMA fighters have ever learned.”

“I don’t understand the phrase, ‘punchers chance. Randy’s got a grappler’s chance of holding onto [James]. There’s no secret in four of Randy’s last five fights (that) he’s been caught, and he’s gone down. Glancing blows – and he’s gone down.”

John Arthur:

“As long as he’s in shape, I don’t give a [expletive] how he looks. As long as he’s in shape – because he’s not a bodybuilder – as long as he’s in shape, and he can do those three five-minute rounds, we’re OK. And he beat that boy’s ass and put him to sleep. Either choke his ass or knock him out. We’re fine. We’re going to get up and go home. We’re going to have an easy night.”
