No that's just gay...but he he's got heart...its hard to come back from a decent knockdown...not many do.
Lesnar. Coleman...really? That fight announcement was laughable...lesnar has potential, but really has to fight his fame as a popular figure in lame-ass pop-culture WWE.
Seriously...how many idiots can there be that WWE still turns profit? Its frightening to think how many guys my age who idolized Hulk Hogan or Roddy Piper, etc. REMAIN completely and totally hooked on a Male Soap Opera.
They must be the same knobs who keep Men's Fitness in print.
Lesnar doesn't need to fight his WWE fame. He needs to improve his MMA skills and capitalize is his legitimate wrestling skills. It is that, and not his former WWE fame that will make him or brake him as a MMA fighter.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
Also, he needs to find a new opponent since Coleman dropped out.
Also, GSP vs Fitch, bitches!
Gonna be hard to find an interesting matchup out of the UFC heavyweights. Although, anyone notice Dan Severn is still listed on the UFC site as an apparently active heavyweight?

It's gonna be hard for UFC to get a replacement for Lesnar. They want a win for Lesnar over a recognisable name in the sport but there's not many that fit that bill. Someone like Pedro Rizzo is a great idea but he's probably too dnagerous, Rico Rodriguez maybe?
The perfect match.......
Coleman out GSP/Fitch in.
"UFC.com has announced that former UFC champ and newly inducted hall of famer Mark Coleman will not be facing Brock Lesnar at UFC 87: Seek and Destroy due to a torn MCL that was suffered during training.
Coleman has not fought since his heavyweight tilt with Fedor Emelianenko in October of 2006 and it appears fans will be waiting at least 6 weeks for the injuries to heal. Former Division 1 Champion Brock Lesnar will now have to wait to attempt to regain the win that was taken from him via knee-bar early in his UFC debut bout against submission wiz Frank Mir.
Fortunately for the fans, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and another fomer Division 1 wrestler Jon Fitch have now been added to the card. Fitch, with his win over Chris Wilson, has finally garnered the respect of the UFC brass and earned himself a title shot."
