Default COLEMAN vs BONNAR UFC 101

Quote:
Following a courageous effort against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 93 in January, UFC hall of famer Mark “The Hammer” Coleman will return to the Octagon on Saturday, July 11th to take on Stephan Bonnar in what promises to be an exciting light heavyweight battle on the sold out UFC 100 card at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Looks like it's official. I think Stephan should be able to get a good win out of this fight.

If Coleman is in the same condition he was in against Rua, should be an easy win for Bonnar. I've never seen anyone in the UFC gas so quickly before.

Coleman does gas, even when he was younger he gassed. I hope he has a good fight. I like the guy. At this stage it will be tough for him to beat Bonnar.

I agree and especially with Bonnar coming off a loss he's going to be gunning for a big win. it would be cool to see Coleman win one more in the UFC, though.

He's one half of the match that is credited with launching the UFC into the stratosphere. I think once that match got everyone's attention they did their research and fighters like Matt and Chuck got them solidified as UFC fans.

He's got some decent wins. Remember that it's the UFC so the guys that appear "crappy" are total badasses.

Will somebody just give Coleman some money and stop letting him fight?

I know its not a fans place to tell a guy when to retire, but come on mark,
you had a great run, please don't become Ken Shamrock.
