Read the story for this picture. These are the only two blondes The Hammer wants in the ring when he’s done.
Randy The Natural Couture vs. Mark “The Hammer” Coleman
I don’t know why, but not too many of the one generation removed guys really move me. I love the oldest guys (Severn, Gracie, even li’l ol’ Tank Abbott), and love the newer ones, but the middles – Matt n Matt, Couture, Liddell – I am no big fan. As a result, this fight isn’t the one I’m most interested in seeing, so I’ll just pick Couture. As much as I like Coleman’s family values, it is hard to go against a guy who trains as Batman.
Nate The Great Marquardt vs. Chael Sonnen
Nate has been training and wrestling with GSP. Repeat, GSP. Although he doesn’t have a very good success rate at taking Gorgeous Georges down, he is going to trouble Chael Sonnen BIG TIME.
Mike Swick vs. Paulo Thiago
Koscheck out. Quick Swick picks up the slack. Would be a nice pickup fight if he wasn’t fighting someone who in his UFC off time a member of an elite military unit in Brazil. Swick is in for a brutal awakening.
Demian Maia vs. Dan Miller
Starting with judo as a kid and working his way up through grappling championships, I think Maia will take this.
Matt The Terror Serra vs. Frank Twinkle Toes Trigg
He’s got my all-time top 5 favorite nickname, that’s why i want him to win. That’s it.
I’m also cheering for Mac Danzig, Melvin Guillard, and Rolles Gracie. P.s. can anyone tell me exactly how to pronounce Rolles’ name?
