In a wide-ranging interview with Dave Farra of Raw Vegas TV, former UFC heavyweight champion Mark Coleman talked about his upcoming fight with Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100, his thoughts on light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, why he'd be a better fighter if head butts were allowed in MMA, and his desire to step into the Octagon with Kimbo Slice.

Coleman said that of all the rules changes that have taken place in his 13 years as a mixed martial artist, the one that most hampered his ability to win fights was the banning of head butts, which he said were a perfect complement to his ground-and-pound style. But Coleman also acknowledged that for the sport to gain popular acceptance, head butts needed to be eliminated.
