MMA  > General MMA  > James "Lights Out" Toney vs Ken "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Shamrock

This bout is reportedly going down in Dallas later in the year.

What do you guys think about this fight? I know it has zero relevancy, but it is an interesting style matchup.

Ken has stopped a bunch of times, and doesn't have the best chin in the world. But Toney has no ground game, and Shamrock is a leg-lock wizzard. This one should find a decisive and fun ending.

I thought it was El Paso...but either way...

I agree with your analysis, Clouis.
A lot of MMA "purists" seem to want every single fight out there to have a grander meaning. But Some bouts are just for fun. Sure's it's a bit of side-show act, but sometimes those types of matches are what are needed to bring some media attention and views to the smaller promotions and that ends up getting some eyes for some other up and comers that end up on the same card.
The media interviews will be ackward, but humourous.

Ken SHOULD easily beat him by taking him down and getting a sub, but that wont happen. I havent seen him use his submission wrestling in years and he is gonna try to stand and bang with Toney and end up getting KOd
