In a recent phone interview from Japan, former UFC and PRIDE grand Prix Champion Mark Coleman was asked who he would want to face next in MMA, and his answer eventually was Randy Couture.

Article

Not a big surprise there, would likely be a great fight and Coleman seems to look at it as being a great accomplishment at this point in his career.

He hasn't earned it, and I doubt that he ever would. I'd expect him to lose to Arlovski, Vera, Nogueira, and Gonzaga, just off the top of my head. Sylvia, Herring, Mir and Kongo too, maybe. If Coleman wants to get in line, I'd say give him a shot, let him fight somebody like Jake O'Brien or Fabricio Werdum.

Can anyone name the last notable win on his record not counting freak accidents?

What a joke!!!!! Coleman is a big strong guy, but not even close to being as well rounded as he needs to be to fight and compete in the UFC...

this isnt gonna happen, although i am a big fan of mark coleman, he is just not good enough to even think about couture. have him start out at the bottom of the food chain and pit him against jake o'brien like AchillesHeel said. HW is so stacked right now, im not even sure fedor even deserves an automatic title shot with all of the HW talent, and if fedor shouldnt get a title shot off the bat, then why should coleman even entertain the thought

haha i hope nobody was thinking that i was suggesting coleman should get a titleshot off the bat =P
I just think that if he's a freeagent, then why not add some more big names to the division?

Randy would dominate Coleman. He's too fast and a better wrestler IMO. If he got Coleman on the fence I think the fight would go Randy's way just like any other fight. He's too smart a fighter.

Is Coleman serious?!?!?.........Coture would kill him.along with the other top 20 UFC HW. Really he is old, but big. his only asset is his strength. i mean even Werdum or O'brian, or Assurario(sp) Silva i think would beat him handily

Coleman was an olympic wrestler, randy was an alternate...how do you figure? I think randy wins via coleman having a heart attack.
