UFC Quick Quote: Randy Couture doesn't believe James Toney's training camp submissions claims

"Nah, I don't believe that. He's probably doing some wrestling with Mo Lawal. That wouldn't surprise me. I know he's not training with Dean Lister. Dean called me himself when that one broke and said, 'I'm not training with that guy. Don't believe that stuff.' But it doesn't matter. All the talk is just talk. No matter who he can get to say he's tapped them out in training, on the day he's still going to walk down to the cage and get in there with me and that's when all that stuff stops."

Randy Couture ain't buying what James Toney is selling. Those tales of "Lights Out" tapping "King Mo" and Dean Lister in training for their UFC 118 clash on August 28 are all hogwash according to the UFC Hall of Famer. In fact, "The Natural" says he has proof to the contrary. Couture told MMA Fighting that Dean Lister himself called the former champ up and told him he's never even trained with Toney. Whoops. Anyone surprised by this revelation? Does the fact that James is resorting to this type of desperate act tell you all you need to know about who holds the upper hand as the "UFC vs. Boxing" deemed match up in Boston quickly approaches?
