yes you can make the argument that coleman is passed his prime but look at his previous 5 fights. hes 2-3 in those with wins over shogun (i know a fluke with shogun breaking his arm) and bonnar and loses to shogun, randy and fedor.
i for one wouldnt call the coleman fight a freakshow. it was a fight between 2 pioneers of the sport. not the most competitive but a fight between 2 ledgends, 2 hall of famers, and 2 pioneers of the sport.
Thats fair. I was just sort looking at it from the perspective of Coleman looking like a shell of an MMA fighter almost the same way Toney was. I suppose could have reworded it to say "inconsequencial fights" instead of freakshow.
