Coleman calls out Machida

After training with Ernest “The Cat” Miller, a well known stand up fighter, Mark “The Hammer”  Coleman believes he has the best chance of defeating Lyoto Machida. After watching last nights fight between “Sugar” Rashad Evans and Machida at UFC 98, Coleman noticed many flaws in Machida’s game.

“I’ve been training hard with “the Cat” and I feel confident that I know what his weaknesses are, and how I can exploit them should we meet in the cage.”

” In my past fights  I relied on my wrestling too much and it showed. Now I know that the key is good cardio and a sound stand up game, which I have now.  I don’t think Machida has faced a wrestler of my caliber before and I think stylistically I match up with him perfectly  “

Coleman who is coming off a loss to former rival Mauricio “Shogun” Rua was disappointed in his last outing, as he explains:

“You know my cardio wasn’t up to scratch for that fight and I believe it was an early stoppage but whatever,  I’m not one to make excuses. Ever since that fight me and Miller have been in the gym  working hard on it and I can keep going for 25 minutes if necessary.

Mark Coleman is currently slated to face Stephen Bonnar at  on July 11th at UFC 100.

    hahahahaha
    The thought of Coleman with any cardio or stand-up is amusing.

    That quote has nothing on this Coleman classic:

    “When I started I was going on instincts. Then they took away headbutts and I had to learn some skills.”

    Coleman will revert back to putting his hands on his knees after three minutes due to exhaustion and turning away from punches when he’s in trouble as he usually does.
