    A heavyweight title fight at UFC 118 showed everyone that professional boxer James Toney still has a lot to learn in mixed martial arts. It also demonstrated that, at 47, Randy Couture might know just about everything there is to know.

    If this weekend's heavyweight fight between Randy Couture and James Toney truly is boxing against mixed martial arts, everyone is being pretty nice about it.

    August 25, 2010

    August 20, 2010

    Randy Couture remembers what it felt like to receive little credit for all he had accomplished in wrestling when he first transitioned to mixed martial arts.
