Shogun will win but it won't mean much.
Oh man, did I ever laugh at that.

Imagine if Coleman wins...I don't even want to think about it, but what then for Shogun? Retirement? Cage Rage? Ken Shamrock?

If Shogun shows up in the condition he was in when he fought Forrest he should win. I'm sorry but I really don't see how Coleman will make the cut and if somehow he does I don't see him having the strength for long to bully Shogun around.

Let's just hope Shogun KO's him straight to the hall of fame. Anyway, this fight has nothing to offer to shogun, imo, if he fwins, he will prove nothing cause I don't think coleman belongs in the cage anymore, and if he loses(only if coleman pulls off a Serra) he could be out of the UFC and maybe be considered overrated.

Franklin's win over Ken Shamrock helped him out. And winning is the only thing that Shogun needs to worry about. Not his opponent.

i dont think the question here is not wether the old shogun will show up coz i dont think he needs to against coleman, cmon now a shogun at 70 or 80 percent could still beat up coleman.

this is a stupid fight imo this is just a fight to get shoguns confidence back up to par

Yeah Shogun has little to gain from this fight besides being able to avenge his loss to Coleman. That being said, barring another freak accident, Rua should take this fight with one (broken or not) arm tied behind his back.

Well that fight was rigged but yeah, sub defense is not their strong point.

Coleman will make 205 easy.

Hope that Shogun will out-do himself not only in this fight but from now on
