Mark Coleman, Randlemanís mentor, told us in a previous interview this summer that they were going to begin training in Brazilian ju-jitsu. If Randleman can add ju-jitsu techniques to his wrestling tackles, body control, power and speed, which Kazushi Sakuraba said was better than Mirkoís, he will be close to a complete fighting monster.
Finally they get it. Imagine those guys if they had good submissions?

Hammer House fighters have always seemed to me to have horrible submission knowledge. I mean, please, someone, just show them a kimura defense or something. I can't believe they haven't seriously trained in BJJ until now.
Oh man, they are going to be scary if they really get some BJJ down.

It might be too little too late for hammer house. Coleman's cardio is not so good anymore, and years of roid abuse are taking their toll. If he had done this say, five years ago they would be a dominant fight team instead of a footnote. Nice idea, but the time for it was years ago.
Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

Poppycock! All Hammer House needs is some good, old-fashioned carney hooker wrestling instruction from the Lou Triad: Lou Ferrigno (for his role in The Hulk as a model for Randleman's roid use), "Captain" Lou Albano and the ghost of Lou Theis.

In unrelated news, The Hammer House's UFC 1-3 DVD order also just arrived late for Christmas.

Randleman is training with Mark Laimon now.But I can't imagine a guy who's game stayed the same for many years suddenly changing itl
I gotta wonder about the intellect of a guy who fights in the UFC and pride far what? like 7 years? Who THEN decides that he might wanna learn how to fight.
Remember when Randy fought Kevin?
Kevin gets the TD in the first two rounds and swings ineffectively in randys guard.
Then in the third Randy gets the throw, he then casually passes guard, mounts and TKO's Kevin, who's when on his back seems to fight not unlike a turtle.
