Ultimate Fighting's Cold War Gets Hotter (TIME Magazine Article)
Imagine a pro quarterback with Peyton Manning's talent, playing up north in the CFL instead of the NFL. Or picture Tiger Woods shunning the PGA and all the major championships to star in the second-string Nationwide Tour.

Coleman has alot of respect for Bonnar
Mark Coleman – The Hammer Talks UFC 100

PDG: What are your thoughts on your opponent; Stephan Bonnar? Mark Coleman: I respect him quite a bit and he has never been stopped in the UFC. He has fought some wars in the cage and he has a huge heart. Stephan has good reach and a good standup game that you have to respect. I have been working a lot in training on my standup and I was hoping to use that in my next couple of fights but I'm going to have to be smart with him and probably take him to the ground. Where I do what I do best – Ground and Pound. I have nothing but respect for Stephan Bonnar and his fight with Forest Griffin was an amazing fight that put the UFC on the map.
