I hear plenty of MMA fans talk trash about Boxing all the time. Who cares? Some people are idiots. There are plenty of intelligent Boxing fans who love MMA.

As for other boxers coming into MMA, it will probably happen more in the future, but they don't owe it to boxing to defend it's honor because of James Toney. Did we forget about Ray Mercer? Still, a guy like Maweather makes like 30 million per fight, he would never bother with MMA. James Toney has been the laughing stock of Boxing for a long time. Kudos to James for getting in there and doing it, but he didn't even try to prepare, just like in his boxing career.

LOL .. i guess you would know ... i have followed toney (i was awaken by his win over nunn) but not as closely as you ... i also don't think he trained for this and saw it as a quick pay day ...

UFC 118 had to be one of the most boring UFC PPV's in history! I really would like to have my money back as well as 3 hours of my life. UFC needs to quit with the 2 ppv's a month average, and really start putting on some good cards.

I agree J.B Floyd makes more money than all of the guys on the card and the door makes combined in one fight! Why would he want to fight anyone in MMA? He would fight them if they came to boxing that i wold believe.
