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
