Couture vs. Coleman was originally supposed to go down in the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship at UFC 17. Due to Couture suffering from bruised ribs that he had received while preparing for the 1998 Greco-Roman wrestling Nationals, Coleman went against substitute Pete Williams. Just under 13 minutes into the clash, Williams knocked out the now UFC hall of famer with a swift kick to the head.
And the two hall of fame wrestlers never got another chance to fight, or at least until now, of course. I have the two year older Couture as the victor. Who do you have to win?
To be honest this is the first Ultimate Championship Fighting event in a while that Iâ€™m not too thrilled about. Perhaps if the rumored Renzo Gracie and Matt Hughes fight would have been added to the card Iâ€™d be more interested. Or if Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort were still going head to head at the early February event, but their not. So I feel like this one should be a SPIKE Television freebee, donâ€™t you?
