Will Toney vs. Couture break the UFC Record set by Liddell Ortiz?

Liddell/Ortiz is their 3rd highest with 1.05 million. Couture/Lesnar just beat it with 1.1 million, and UFC 100 smashed it with 1.6 million.

There's a possibility it could but I would be surprised. Toney isn't a big draw in boxing anymore and I don't see why he would draw more in MMA other than the spectacle of a one time great boxer against a one time great MMA fighter.

Hell no, half of those ppl who bought the Lesner fight were WWE fans.

Toney will pull some boxing fans but as you can see Toney's not the biggest draw in boxing anymore and a lot of boxing fans hate MMA so it has no appeal.

UFC 100 did not too 1.6 million lol, first they said it did 1.1, then 1.4 and now 1.6

UFC 118 Penn Vs. Edgar and Toney Vs. Couture should do 700K -1 M

It'll do maybe 800k. Depends on Chael/Andy.

No chance. Who wants to see old man Toney get knocked out? He's to old and Couture is going to give him a beating.

I dont think I've ever seen a stupider set of threads in the history of BoxingScene than the ones you've created in the past week.
