"I have so many friends down in San Diego, down in SoCal, but the biggest addition to the guys I have been training is James Toney. I recently worked with him a good bit. It’s a lot of guys down there wanting to learn Jiu Jitsu and Toney is one of them."
"He learns really fast. I mean, of course his striking is unparalleled, but I tell you what, for a big guy, he moves fast. He’s not all fancy with things yet and he’s not the most technical guy on the ground, but he is so strong man. He is a strong guy."
"It’s actually rewarding when my students start picking up little things that I’ve been showing them. What happened was, I was trying to pass his guard. He didn’t pull guard or anything like that. I’m not going to say how we got to the ground because I don’t want to give anything that he’s trying to do away. We were going over a few things and I passed his guard and I got a mount and he turned and like grabbed my foot. I’m lucky he didn’t break it. He was close to breaking it."
— First, "King Mo" Lawal stated that James Toney submitted him, what is unexpected for a boxer. But now Dean Lister - known as one of the best grapplers at the present - says "Lights Out" almost finished him. As we all know, Toney is scheduled to debut at UFC versus veteran MMA fighter Randy Couture at UFC 118 "Edgar vs Penn 2", on Aug 28th, in Boston Massachusetts. Will James shock the world and apply a submission over Couture or the wrestler will take the world class boxer down and smash him until the referee interrupts the contend?
