Now i was waiting for someone to tell me this was an early April fool's joke. How could Dana White sign James Toney when he had the chance to sign Bobby Lashley. The only reason Toney got sign was to fight Kimbo Slice. Is Dana White really this desperate to find a fighter for Kimbo? Kimbo is suppose to fight Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 but i wouldn't be surprised if that fight got cancel so Kimbo could fight Toney. Go to and look at the UFC 113 card Kimbo vs Mitrione is not even on the card. So it makes it perfectly clear what Dana is trying to do. Dana made Kimbo go through T.U.F. so Toney should do the same because i don't care how many boxing matches he have had all it takes is for somebody to get i'm on the ground and its over. Dana talking about how he's not gone put on a freak show well i'm sorry because he already did when he signed James Toney.
