“I’m not playing,” former boxing champion James “Lights Out” Toney says about his debut in the UFC, Aug. 28 at UFC 118, held at the TD Garden in Boston, against former UFC heavyweight and light-heavyweight Randy “The Natural” Couture. “These guys were afraid to come to my sport, so I’m coming to theirs.”

Toney hosted an informal brunch at MGM’s Wolfgang Puck’s today in Las Vegas to talk about his upcoming fight. “I’m the greatest fighter Couture’s ever fought,” he said. “And if he wants to stand up and fight, he’s gonna have a hell of a headache the next morning.”
