Vitor Belfort wants a boxing match versus James Toney ...

... and he's appealing to UFC President Dana White via Twitter to make it happen:

"Dana, let me fight James Toney on a 6 round boxing match. I think I can catch him with my speed. Dana, this will be the first boxing match in UFC and I promise he will feel my power and we will show the world that a UFC fighter can do better"

Belfort owns fast and heavy hands, but are they enough to fight a boxer like James Toney? White stated after UFC 118 that there won't be another MMA vs boxing competiton inside the Octagon after Toney was embarrassed by Randy Couture, losing via submission just seconds into their heavyweight bout. White scored a Pyrrhic victory of sorts over the Sweet Science, which makes it even more unlikely that he'd risk messing that up by letting his fighers box pro boxers inside the square circle. But, if this bout ever did happen, do you think Belfort has enough skills to beat Toney up?
