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 care about this fight. I don't know why but I still like Coleman. He is a rather sad character that I feel bad for in a lot of ways. If he needs to fight I am glad the UFC is giving him fights. Win, lose or draw, his fights are usually pretty entertaining.
