Yesterday when Dana White confirmed the signing of legendary boxer James "Lights Out" Toney, speculation began running wild on who will be the first to step up to the plate and fight Toney in the octagon.
Now one day later the rumor mill is working overtime with evidence that the ideal opponent has been already been decided . Kimbo Slice was penciled in to be fighting Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 yesterday before the news broke of Toney's signing. Today, the fight has suddenly been taken off the line-up without an explanation.
Is it just a coincidence?
Add to the fact that today James Toney's manager spoke of how he hoped that he would fight either Randy Couture or Kimbo Slice in his UFC debut match. We might just have the workings of a big time fight on our hands that could bring record buyrates for the UFC if the bout gets signed.
My prediction for the fight if it goes down?
Kimbo Slice by brutal "Kimboplex"...
