We all know how pathetic Toney was when he fought Couture, but people forgot how great of a boxer pre-blob Toney was. Back in the 90s, James 'Lights Out' Toney was one of the most skilled middleweights ever. He was a boxing purist, a grandmaster of pugilism. He was slick, smart and tough. A great defensive fighter who could be in front of you without getting a hit and counterpunch brilliantly.

1. How would a prime James Toney do in MMA?

2. What would happen if he faced Silva?

Sorry for my poor English btw

If he can dodge does takedowns and land the first punch, I'm sure Toney wins. And he was very slippery.

Vaseline should be prohibited in boxing

@Jnr6Lil: Boxing is irrelevant here, the OP clearly states an MMA fight and Toney get's destroyed.
