Oh yes, Ken Shamrock vs James Toney is Freakasaurus


Even though it was one of the biggest freakshows in modern UFC history, at least the promotion for James Toney vs Randy Couture was handled in a relatively sane manner. Sure, James Toney made a couple of unintelligible hype videos and dressed a Randy Couture action figure up in a dress. But for the most part the UFC and Randy admitted the fight was pretty silly and didn’t let the whole thing devolve into a circus.

It seems very obvious from the above video that the newly minted Ken Shamrock / James Toney fight has no problems manufacturing some big top showmanship. It hasn’t even been a week since the fight was announced and the two already tried to start a brawl at a press conference. Possibly in an attempt to reassure people the fight wouldn’t end the second Toney landed on his big fat butt, Ken also promised he’d stand and trade with the boxer before taking him to the ground.

I don’t know if Ken needs to be giving James any extra advantages. The wheels have come so far off the Shamrock war wagon that Toney might be able to win even if Ken goes straight for a takedown. Hell, if Ken even makes it to the fight it’ll be amazing. Last second stitches / money negotiations, heart palpitations, or a positive steroids test are always possibilities when you’re dealing with the World’s Most Deranged Man.

    I’m seeing reports that this is going to be 8 three minute rounds and they will stand them up after 30 seconds if they ht the ground. It’s getting worse.

    They even have preperations for Shamrocks funeral. The funeral will be animated by Schiavello.

    Freakasaurus very fitting!

    Even more freakasaurusish is the “SPECIAL RULES” like 8 3 minute rounds and a 30 second clock when the fight goes to the ground. After 30 seconds they are stood back up.

    Do. Not. Want. in any capacity. And fuck those stupid Mr. Potatohead rules – either try to swim with legit mma rules or shut the fuck up and go suck on the cool mill you made off of the last fiasco.

    Is fightfan the new MIB? An echo? OCD?

    My thoughts exactly Komodo. Only I think the IRS took his last payday. He might as well make some scratch cuz he isn’t going to be around much longer as the joke can only last so long.
