He doesn't throw a lot of combinations, but he's a very powerful guy. If you stand around in front of him he's gonna try and hit you with some good hooks and overhand rights. He's gonna follow those with a straight double leg. Knowing what you're looking for there and being ready for that is a big key. The more times you can stuff Mark and keep him from taking you down or make him work real hard to take you down is gonna pay dividends on the conditioning side of things even in a three round fight.

I agree, Coleman was never known for his gas tank. I think you're right about Randy's strategy, he might even take Mark down a few times just to wear him out as well.

randy's got this in the bag. i think his game plan is perfect. its amazing they are both still fighting at this level at their age but i think coleman is closer to being done than randy is. this is a epic fight though. who wouldnt want to see this fight.

Randy has a huge advantage in this bout.
But with that being said you can't count Coleman out completley.
Coleman will have to nullify Coutures takedown offense,out muscle him,and attempt to rock him early.
Easier said than done,but I'm sure Coleman may have something like that in mind.

Randy's going to smash him standing and in the clinch, maybe even get himself a TKO win.

Coleman may win round one but like everyone already knows he's going to huff and puff after 5 minutes, maybe less.

Too bad this fight didnt happen when it should've because it'd actually be competitive, a fight that Coleman probably would've won.
