"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? The full story is avaiable at FightHype.

Date Posted: Thursday, March 18, 01:09 PM PST How Bellator Lost Diaz Nick Diaz was moments away from signing with Bellator for their first MMA event when last minute negotiations fell apart. Bellator had verbally agreed to give Diaz the same signing bonus they had given Eddie Alvarez (reportedly $50,000), then higher ups scrapped signing bonuses all together and Diaz was left to consider signing a contract with the same stipulations and financial terms as even some of the novice fighters competing for the organization. Diaz ultimately decided to pass on the offer and sign with Elite XC and then move forward with Strikeforce. The rest was history.

"Yeah, [you would] take yourself to the hospital. I remember my people taking me to the hospital. I think [Pride] used to have a van there sometimes. But in the UFC if you get hurt even in practice for a fight, Dana will say ‘Come on, come to my doctor’ and they will pay for it. The UFC is really good about that. That’s one thing I really like about the UFC compared to Pride, the UFC is really good like that. But if you got hurt in practice getting ready for a Pride fight… [laughs]. And if you got hurt in a fight, like I got my hand broken over there, they don’t care"

In an interview with Fighters Only Quinton "Rampage" Jackson recognized the UFC has take more care of fighters than Pride used to. It could be a sign of a makeup between Jackson and president Dana White. Who knows?

"This time Cro Cop is buckled down for the fight. He has stated he still thinks on being a champion and it shows how he still devotes himself to MMA. I think he has the tools to get along well in the fight"
