Despite being thoroughly trounced by Randy Couture in his MMA debut at UFC 118 last August, IBA and NABO heavyweight champion James “Lights Out” Toney is ready to give the sport another go.
BJPenn.com reports that Toney has agreed to face MMA legend Ken Shamrock on Sept. 23 in El Paso, Texas. No announcement has been made on the venue or fight card, however the bout will be an MMA contest.
Since announcing his retirement from the sport in 2006, Shamrock has gone 2-5 against mostly journeymen fighters. Shamrock last fought at King of the Cage: Platinum on November 25, 2010, losing to Mike Bourke due via TKO due to injury.
