Did the UFC really just sign James Toney?

According to Five ounces of pain Professional Boxer James Toney and the UFC have agreed on a multi-fight contract. The 41 year old Toney was seen at UFC 108 stalking Dana White in hopes of negotiating terms to enter the UFC. Toney finally caught up with White at the post fight press conference telling White he wanted to prove what was better Boxing or MMA. I sure this sparked White’s interest as he has on many occasion that MMA is better the Boxing and even called out Floyd Mayweather.

After watching the video between White and Toney with Ariel Helwani I think the “who’s better Boxer or MMA” is the only angle that doesn’t make this signing a freak show. Put to does this you after to pick the correct opponents in there with Toney. Put him in there against a well rounded fighter that could stand some with Toney but also could take the fight to the ground. If we as fans are going to watch Toney inside the cage we want to know there is a good possibility the fight hits the mat. Lets see how he does with that and go from there, just because he signed a Multi-fight deal doesn’t mean he can’t be one and done in the UFC.
