Based on how 2008 went for fight favorites... all these people picking Shogun makes me feel like I should pick Coleman!
Exactly...I'm really having a tough time with this one. On first thought, I see Shogun winning by just about any way that he wants. On second thought, I see that Coleman is the bigger guy and that he should be able to push Shogun around and could probably get on top and gnp if he wanted.
I saw in the first fight that Coleman immediately wanted to take Shogun down, and it looks like he was going to. Shogun broke his arm trying to avoid the takedown from Coleman, perhaps because he knew that he couldn't hang on the ground (or just because he knew that he had such an advantage in the striking game that that was his best option).
All in all, I still have Shogun in this fight, but I'm leaning more and more toward Coleman every time that I think about this fight. If I DO change to Coleman, then don't expect me to let you guys know.
