    Toney was paid to take a dive to restore mma’s dignity after what Mercer did to Tim.

    Tim violated the "gentleman's agreement" about not kicking in the first few seconds of the fight.

    Mercer took the kick, angled his head like "what the fuck" and uncorked that monster punch.

    Lol that Toney vs Couture fight, they both laughed all the way to the bank. Quick payday for both.

    I don't remember it perfectly but iirc it was more of like a low John Smith single (not really but in ways) than an ankle pick.I do the same thing if i'm grapping or fighting with a much larger person if I don't like them,but instead of coming up with a single I pull the foot toward me holding the Achilles while driving forward pushing just under the knee with my shoulder and keeping my forearm running along side the foot so they can't spin.Being that off balance makes it almost impossible for them to attempt a strike it's pretty much full defense mode at that point.It's so nasty on the knee hence why I said I only do it if I really dislike someone,I have fucked some people up with that td and I pretty much always land it.Anywho I remember thinking the Couture td was very similar to that td.

    Gentlemen's agreement to stand and strike iirc.Can't remember if that was fact or what.

    Heard about that. I remember the fight looking bizarre cause Sylvia was so big and it looked like they used a smaller cage lol

    My fav part is ray shooting for the takedown after he drops him.

    I love when people try to use the Mercer KO as proof of anything, like boxing being better than grappling because someone got knocked out who wasn't trying to grapple

    Steve Jennum beat Melton Bowen, a fairly high level boxers.

    Mayorga lost every fight including Level, a backyard fighter from Dawg Fight.

    Botha was a boxing HW contender and got walked through by Sexyama when he was still just a judoka.

    You can see when Sylvia throws a kick, Mercer looks at him like, "That wasn't the agreement, Tim."

    Exactly, like saying BJJ is better than boxing if a BJJ black belt rolls with and taps Canelo.
