I don't think it's a scarifice as long as the HOFer thinks he is going to win. I truly beleive Shammy, Royce, and Especially Coleman believe it.I also remember each fight, and how a lot of the so called " old school" fans were picking the HOFer on forums . I 'm still not sold on Lesnar till I see him escape trouble a couple of times. I heard Pat Militech say Joe Riggs is the most talented guy he has ever seen in the gym, but he seems to be unable to put it all together consistently in big fights. So while I think Lesnars potential is staggering, he hasn't done much yet IMO. If Coleman would train Under someone like jackson, Couture, Ibara, Blackhouse, AKA, etc., I would pick him for sure. Until he at least learns BJJ, I think Coleman should not fight anyone even top 30 yet. So heres to hoping Coleman swallows his pride ,and puts himself under the tutelage of someone more well rounded . When your gameplan is so rudimentary ( " Take him down, ground and pound. Nuff said" ) I think you are a bit behind the times.
