UFC News: Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Coleman

mark coleman vs lesnar

Tonight during the UFC 82 PPV show, the Ultimate Fighting Championships inducted Mark “The Hammer” Coleman into the UFC hall of fame.

While we were expecting a “walk into the sunset” type speech from the hall of famer, instead Coleman surprisingly announced that he will be taking on former WWE superstar Brock Lesnar at UFC 87 August in Minneapolis, Minnesota .

The 44 year old fighter has fought everyone from Fedor Emelianenko, Mirko Cro Cop, UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Don Frye, Gary Goodridge and Pedro Rizzo, first appearing back at UFC 10.

Heres a clip from his speech tonight:

“The fans want to see me, I’m gonna pay my dues, and I’m gonna do the best I can. He (Lesnar) is a beast, he’s an animal, but don’t bet the house against me. I’m gonna bring something for Brock Lesnar and I’m gonna beat his butt.”

Comments

  1. Wow, everyone had a lot to say about this one. I like Coleman. I've watched him since he started. he was one of my favorite fighters way back in the day. However, I think Lesnar has this one. With Colman's CURRENT ability and age, not to mention it's a bad match-up for him, I think he's just going to lose again. I'm not comparing Lesnar's abilities with Fedor, but I don't think this fight will look too much different.

  2. I agree, Lesnar is the next Big Thing in the HW and MMA world. Just give him time in a year from now he will be the champ or be fighting for the belt.
