UFC 118: James Toney Attempting More Mind Games With Randy Couture

Erik Fontanez@@Erik_FontanezCorrespondent IJuly 3, 2010

You have to appreciate James Toney's willingness to promote a fight.  

The former boxing world champion has been very vocal about his intention of beating former UFC champion Randy Couture in their scheduled bout at UFC 118 in Boston, MA.

Toney was present at the MGM Grand Garden Arena prior to the UFC 116 weigh-ins and sat with Yahoo! Sports' Kevin Iole and other media members to discuss his next fight.

Toney, however, did not come alone.

The boxer turned mixed martial artist brought a Randy Couture doll decked out in an elegant little dress. Toney is obviously attempting to get in the head of the UFC hall of famer and this latest move is a clear example of it.

"You shoot in and...hug on people.  That's what MMA fighters do," said Toney.

Apparently, Toney feels that being in a clinch means wearing a dress outside the Octagon. See for yourself...
