Toney is a legendary former boxer who captured many titles during his heyday. He also became one of the first big stars to cross over into another combat sport. Toney fought Randy Couture in an infamous UFC clash that saw him lose by submission. This infuriated Toney, who didn’t expect Couture to take him down at all.
However, Couture was a wrestling specialist and everybody knew he would do exactly what he did. It was naive of Toney not to expect this but he paid the price. It’s one of those freak shows that people can’t believe happened in real life. Toney doesn’t like to talk about this event because the UFC exploited him (via Bloody Elbow).
