As reported earlier, UFC has signed former boxer James Toney. Now 41 years old, Toney had a 72-6-3 (2 no contests) record with 44 KOs.
On UFC.com, Dana White had these comments about the signing:
A lot of pro boxers have made a lot of noise about how they would do in mixed martial arts, but nobody on the level of a James Toney has been willing to back up his talk. He’s a legend whose boxing record speaks for itself, and he’s a guy who I’ve got a lot of respect for. Now he’s got every intention of matching that success in MMA, and I think he’s got the right attitude – let’s see if he can do it.
