He will if he stops cycling his roids for this matchup .. the testing here is a little bit better than Japan.

Colemans last fight was in the US.

I'm a little surprised Coleman can fight at LHW too. I know he was juiced but even allowing for that I thought he was a decent sized HW. Doesn't matter anyway. He could walk into the ring at 240 and I'd expect Shogun to beat him pretty easily anyway. It has been a long time since Coleman was legitimate.

Whatever, probably wouldn't stop him if he really wanted to. But he might have to stop the bulk up ones at least if he wants to make weight.

Colemans not that big, he came into his last two fights at a ripped 225ish. I don't know why people think he is massive, but he really isn't. At his biggest he was about 240 I think

I really think that even if the "old Shogun" doesnt show up, he will still win. I have zero faith in Coleman at this point in his career. However, I really hope Mauricio's knee's are better and he is able to compete at the level he did previously. There are so many amazing matchups for him in the UFC as the "old Shogun"

I just remember back when he was fighting guys like Williams and he looked huge. Of course he was fighting guys who were mostly smaller so it is relative I guess. His weight is listed at 224 so if that is walking around then obviously making 205 would be easy.

True, Coleman hasn't fought in 2 years, and is broken down. The guy is also one-dimensional, always has been. His best days are long, long, long gone, and Shogun, whether it's the 2005 or 2007 Shogun, will destroy him and avenge his loss.

How crushing would it be to see Shogun bloody and batter Coleman only to have his daughters walk into the Octagon?
