Juanito Ibarra: James Toney is a born fighter

Juanito Ibarra, the man behind improving the stand-up skills of former, UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, has been speaking about James “Lights Out” Toney, saying the man is a born fighter.

Speaking via FightHype.com, Ibarra said:

“He’s a born fighter. People are talking about his age and things like that, but James Toney was born to fight; end of story! He has the passion and the will to continue to learn and get better…I believe that people will see that James Toney is for real and I won’t be surprised, but I think the world will be surprised… Toney threw a head kick at me the other day and, like I said, I’m not surprised that he can do it, it’s just that he’s doing it that fast. His flexibility is there and that’s one of the things that we are working on, besides other things like the ground game and everything else that you have to work on in MMA, but it’s just a pleasant surprise.”
