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

Just like the guys that fight in the local golden gloves are boxers, just like Floyd Mayweather is a boxer, they're simply on different levels.

Same thing applies here. What makes a mixed martial artist? Attempting to apply multiple (more then one) styles into one effective style. Toney attempted to do this by learning techniques other then boxing techniques to suppliment and make effective his boxing. Therefore, by definition, he is a mixed martial artist. You simply add in the qualifier to denote his level, which is a novice.

Ok man.. I guess I'm wrong.. Thanks for looking at it from my side as well..
