The man is persistent. James Toney crashed the postfight press conference after UFC 108 to get some face time and force a sit down with Dana White. Apparently White wasn't willing to open the vault for a guy who holds the prestigious "IBA" boxing heavyweight title.
Toney to the UFC is dead, right? Not quite. Toney jumped on Versus' "Sports Soup" and mumbled his way through a verbal beatdown/request of White to get him into the UFC.
The lines we could decifer included:
"All the UFC fans out there, I love y'all. If you hate me, [expletive] y'all!"
"This is a goon service announcement towards Dana White. Dana White [expletive] you, [expletive] you, [expletive] you"
"Put down the candy and let the little girls go and come see me."
"Oh Chuck Liddell, Daddy's girl. That's Dana White's No. 1 sweetheart."
Toney did give respect to Randy Couture but also called Kimbo Slice, "Simba Spice." Great stuff, but Toney isn't worth bringing into MMA at any price.
