Default Re: Randy Couture should fight James Toney in a Boxing Match. Why?

MMA is an equal ground. You can do anything. You're not limited to singular skill sets. Toney, or any boxer, can use their boxing, but no one has to box with them. Just like Randy, or any wrestler, can use their wrestling, but you don't have to wrestle with them.

Do you see the difference yet?

If they had a wrestling match where Toney was forced to comply with Randy's greatest strength, then yes, your argument holds weight, but they didn't. We know what the result would be either way. If Randy fights James in a boxing match, James wins. If James competes against Randy in a wrestling match, Randy wins.

Now, if they compete in a contest where they can each do their own thing, then it's equal starting ground and Randy won.

Any other questions?
Randy had the advantage because they fought under MMA rules. A fare fight would be no rules at all (street fight)or a complete new set of rules to suite that particular bout. If Randy fought in the boxing ring using boxing rules, Toney would of had the advantage just the same as Randy had. To take one out of there element and have him compete in another with very little training, especially aganist a veteren is far from being equal.
