Has Mark Coleman Ever Been Put On His Back?

I can't remember ever seeing Coleman's guard, as I don't remember him being taken down or swept. I can remember seeing Randleman on his back against guys like Ninja, but damn, I can't think of any moments where someone was in Coleman's guard.

Discuss.

Damn good question Damone, I can't remember ever seeing him on his back either.... Except when he tried to jump on the ropes and ate shit! haha

I'm gonna look around now because it has to have happened sometime.

I tried, but I couldn't come up with an answer. But I'll try some more.

I can't honestly say that I remember Coleman being put on his back, which is a testament to how good he is.

I'm really hoping that Coleman schools Lesnar.

Coleman has faced guys like Frye, Fedor, and Nogueira and none of them have put him on his back. Definitely shows you how great Coleman's wrestling is.

I've actually been a fan of Coleman's ever since I saw Kerr's The Smashing Machine documentary. Seemed like a genuinely good guy. As for his fighting style: I'd like to see him adapt to the "mma" game better (since it seems like he's still stuck in the old categorical fighting systems of ground fighter/ striker/ or wrestler).

Anyway, that's a whole different topic I suppose. Lesnar was an all american, coleman the olympian. I actually think this is going to be a lackluster stand-up war. Although, I don't know what Coleman is weighing nowadays, so he might be prepared to work off his back. I know he spent a hefty amount of time at Cobra Kai working submissions with Laimon and he probably isn't accustomed to being the smaller fighter. I get the feeling the UFC is trying to use Coleman as justification for Lesnar's contract. I can only hope that Coleman demolishes Lesnar. In that unlikely event, is Coleman going to start fighting more? He's only been taking fights every 8 months (roughly) for the last couple years... and before that only fighting once a year. If he wins against Lesnar is he going to be ready to fight every 4 months at his age (although maybe they'll throw him in as a coach on TUF and he'll get to rest for 6 months)?

Just my thoughts
