James Toney's lopsided UFC loss Saturday does not mean boxers can't compete with wrestlers. It means boxers that train in a buffet line can't compete with wrestlers in wrestling. Fine me a mixed martial arts fight in which the combatants don't wrestle. I've seen guys knocked out with a punch before going to the mat, but such results are rare. A boxer in the Octagon is like a sprinter running a marathon. Except that sprinters are in shape. Toney chose not to be.
