Sports Science Breaks Down the Sweet Science: James Toney vs. Randy Couture

ESPN's "Sports Science" examines the punching power of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and world class boxer James Toney. The two are slated to meet at UFC 118 this weekend. The Sports Science lab measured Toney's power punch at 1300lbs of force, while Couture's came in at 1002lbs of force, 300lbs less. However, Sports Science host and CEO John Brenkus does take the time to distinguish the differences between MMA striking and boxing striking. It will be very interesting to see how these numbers play out in the Octagon.
