Randy Couture will face off with James Tony on August 28 at UFC 118 in Boston. The seasoned veteran will go up against a fighter with some serious boxing credentials, but he doesn’t discard the possibility of fighting another fighter in the organization boasting some sharp fist-work.
“I think I’d do well against Anderson Silva due to my wrestling background. It would be a great fight,” said “Captain America” during a UFC teleconference.
Asked whether the “Spider” seemed to be getting old because of his latest appearances, he defended the middleweight champion.
“I don’t think he’s getting old. He just changed his style to fight more not to lose and it caught up with him.”
On his fight with Toney, Randy isn’t paying any mind to the provocations flung at him. Toney has even said he’ll send “The Natural” to the hospital.
“I’m not worried about the trash talk. I’m focused on the technical side and what I need to do to win. It’s fun, he makes smile, makes me laugh. It’s nothing personal.”
