Default Stephan Bonnar vs Mark Coleman on tap for UFC 100

http://mmamania.com/2009/03/12/steph...p-for-ufc-100/

Quote:
The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) runner up, Stephan Bonnar, will likely collide with former heavyweight champion, Mark Coleman, in a light heavyweight bout slated for UFC 100 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11.

MMAmania.com has learned that bout agreements have been offered to both fighters but have not yet been signed.
I don't recall why, but I was under the impression Coleman was retiring...
Maybe because he is 44... and hasn't won a fight in 3 years,
or because he said he is completely broke and can't afford training camps.

Wow, I guess the UFC really wants to have an excuse to keep Stephan around...

I think he is holding on by a thread, I don't see them keeping him around much longer if he loses to Coleman.

Not the way they have been dropping people anyway

Stephan Bonnar and Mark Coleman? lol

Other than that, doubtful, seems like an odd fight to bother having on the UFC 100 card

I hope it's on the under - under card: ie: Not televised unless they need a filler and something amazing happens in the fight.

I think they feel the need to keep him around because of the stardom that tuf 1 brought to the ufc. He helped bring them to the table so they have to throw him some bones.

I think Bonner/Griffon are there to stay no matter what happens in their careers. I think I remember Dana telling Bonner after his loss that hes not going anywhere for the very reason of the TuF 1 fight.
I do agree this fight should'nt be on the main card just no reason for it. They could of gotten a better fight besides those two to put on the UFC 100 card.
Not to derail about Chuck,but to me if he loses this fight he shoul'dnt headline another PPV ever again unless he earns it. Maybe delegate himto undercard or UFN main event...I don't think he should be booted out of the UFC if he loses.
