Quote of the Day: James Toney Says "MMA Fighters Are Scared to Go Toe-to-Toe With a Boxer"

"MMA is a part time job because Dana White opened his mouth and I accepted his challenge."

"I'm a big fan of MMA. I like watching Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, …Anderson Silva, BJ Penn, Georges St. Pierre, I'm a big fan of all those guys. I enjoy the sport."

"When Dana White opened his mouth and said that MMA fighters are better than boxers. Hold on, I took offence to that. There's no way possible a world champion [boxer] in his prime can be beat by an MMA fighter, no matter how good they are."

"MMA fighters are scared to go toe to toe with a boxer; it's not going to happen. …their best chance of winning is trying to get the fighter to the floor. But the game starts on top first and when he gets close, it's over with."

"Me and my dad have been working on a lot of different details. [on preparing for the ground game and checking leg kicks] But if I tell you, I'd be letting my secret out. But tune in June, July to whoever I fight and you will all be very impressed with what I do."

"This is not a game, I'm thinking serious, I'm very excited to come to the UFC and let everybody see what a real world champion looks like."

-- James Toney talks Kimbo Slice at the 3:15 min mark and wanting to debut at Heavyweight at the 4:20 min mark.
