James Toney plans a return to MMA following a beating by UFC legend Randy Couture at UFC 118. Toney has agreed to face UFC legend Ken Shamrock at a yet to be determined date and location this fall.

Toney’s trainer Trever Sherman,

“The earliest date as I know it would be late September, and the latest would be late October”

“The takedown is Ken’s only chance … I respect Ken as much as I do Randy. He’s one of the reasons we have this art. But he can’t stand with James. Randy proved that. He didn’t stand with him for 10 seconds. No one will make that mistake. I want James to go in with hands down by his waist and dare Ken to punch with him.”

    Really??? I would not even waste my time watching this for free. With Randy, Chuck, and even his brother Frank retiring within the past year, Ken should do the same. I would rather see either of those guys fight before I see Ken fight again.

    Whats worse is he will probably take Tony down and win the fight. With a win Ken's going to keep on fighting.

    As much as I want Ken to give it up; I don't want this stupid Fu**en loud mouth son of a Bit** to beat any MMA fighter. Everyone knows he's trying to get another paycheck to pay for his rent to own jewlery and back child support payments. I would rather see Ken keep fighting over Lames Phony getting a couple more fights if he wins. I hope Ken gets him down and has a flash back of the old Ken and just beats the dog sh** out of this clown. Dumb a** can't even tap out correctly. Sorry its JMO and I can't stand for someone to talk sooo much sh** and get their ass beat in a matter of minutes.
