Randy Couture, James Toney, Other UFC 118 Fighters Meet Media in Boston

Randy Couture, James Toney, Other UFC 118 Fighters Meet Media in Boston The UFC is coming to Boston, and the hoopla already has begun.

UFC president Dana White and several of the fighters on the fight card were in Boston on Wednesday for a news conference before UFC 118 hits the TD Garden on Saturday, Aug. 28.

White was in town at Faneuil Hall on Wednesday as were the participants of the main event. BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar, who will square off for the lightweight title, were among the fighters on hand.

Joining them were two heavyweights with two incredibly different resumes. Hall of Famer Randy Couture and boxer James Toney — who will be making his MMA debut — are scheduled to fight as well.

"I wanted to bring a good one," White said about the card for UFC 118. "The cool thing with Toney coming here is that Boston is a big fight town and it's been huge here for years. I remember when he fought Roy Jones Jr., I went to the press conference, and that was when regular people couldn't go to press conferences."

Below are some photos from Wednesday's news conference.
