Can Coleman make 205?? Or would this be a 1 off HW match-up I wonder??
It will be at LHW, Coleman was planning on fighting at 205 when he got in the UFC in the first place, but the UFC wanted him to fight Brock and he accepted. He said he was keeping his weight at around 220.
Here is part of an interview where he says he can fight at 205: (its from mmamania.com) Mark Coleman:
I didn’t anticipate this match-up and just found out about it myself. In my mind, I thought I was possibly going to be fighting at 205 my next fight. So yeah, I am a little light. I’m probably walking around at 225. But there’s no sense in me trying to add a bunch of weight, because it’d be useless weight. I’ve been real strict on my diet to weigh 225, but I’ll probably come in around 230.
there was a video interview where he actually says he wants to fight at 205, and cutting 20lbs is easy for him, and that was his plan coming into the UFC (this is before he was offered Brock)
