Those matchups are ****ing beautiful. I wonder if Randleman can upset another of the big three....if those matchups happen that is.

I remember Randleman's debut UFC. Scary lookin' man. Then he seemed to drop off the radar with my cash flow so I was wondering what he was up to.

I think that if Randlemans game is on he has a good chance against Fedor. For the first 3 minutes Coleman showed that Fedor is vulnerable to being taken down and put on his back by a good wrestler. Kevin has great takedowns, is faster, has better hands and has better cardio then Coleman. If he can avoid the submission he has a shot at another HUGE upset. Will I put $ on Randleman? No. Will I be surprised if he shocks the world again? No.

That's exactly how I feel.
