Many big names from the UFC as well as the boxing industry have been weighing in with their opinions on the Couture v Toney heavyweight bout, with most tipping Couture to give the boxer an MMA lesson.
Amir Khan recently said of the fight: "Toney has to make his punch count right away, but Couture will be watching for that. In any fight, you need a plan B and I don’t think Toney has one in a UFC fight."
His opinion was one shared by David Haye, who commented: "I admire Toney’s courage, but six months of training isn’t going to be enough. As a UFC fan, I know two or three years wouldn’t be enough. He’s delusional here. Couture isn’t only going to end his UFC career inside a minute, he is most likely going to break James’s arm or leg and end his boxing career too."
Many have speculation that Toney could be able to pull off a shock win, with UFC fighter Michael Bisping sharing an opinion held by many.
"I can’t wait to see it to be honest," said the British MMA star. "Can Randy double-leg him inside 10 seconds and do a number on him? Of course he can. But what if Toney lands one shot? That’s what makes this so interesting. What if?"
The "what if?" makes Toney well worth backing at Betclic by following the link below. Should you back Toney and he lose, you'll receive your stake back in full!
