Default Militech picks Coleman vs Couture

Quote:
Pat Miletich: The fight between Randy Couture and Mark Coleman could actually be a very entertaining fight. Randy continues to give younger fighters problems and is in the hunt for another title shot. People have been picking him to lose fights for the past five years, saying he's too old to compete. His wrestling, strength, experience and endurance pay off time and time again.

Mark Coleman, like Couture, is a guy that was part of the first wave of top-tier wrestlers that took over the sport in the late 90s. I actually trained Mark when he was invited to compete in the first Pride GP. He had lost 2-3 fights in a row and was able to rededicate himself and win the GP. What has impressed me most about this particular era of Coleman's career is he seems to have that same determination and fire again.

This will be one of the few fights where Couture is up against a guy that is his age but who has equal or better wrestling ability. Coleman's takedowns are powerful, and he may have the advantage in this category. Even though Randy is very strong, I also give the punching power edge to Coleman. The ability to transition and flow goes to Couture, and he also has better endurance.

If Mark Coleman is going to win, I think it will have to come in the first 7-10 minutes of the fight. If the fight gets past that point, the odds will probably swing towards Couture. Either way it is a historical fight between two guys that are true UFC legends, and I will certainly be watching. I hope both have great performances and come out the other side healthy.
Well said, Pat. It's always good to hear his opinion on fights.

Randy will work the clinch and pop him on the exit. Look for this to cause Coleman to gas out by mid round two Randy will have his way.

Good gravy! If he gases I can only wish that Randy is able to finish it quickly. There is nothing I hate worse than watching that sort of torture. A man as limp as a noodle but refusing to go down!

Agreed. Hope Coleman at least looks dominate for awhile...not sure why Coleman was pitted against Randy, what, after beating Stephan Bonner
