Mark Coleman will be at DaMMAge Fight League's Big Bang event tomorrow night November 24th in Atlantic City, where he'll be cornering UFC veteran Branden Lee Hinkle in Hinkle's fight against another UFC veteran, Kevin "The Shaman" Jordan.
I had a great conversation with Mark talking about the current top heavyweights in the world.
TheGARV.com: What did you think about Cain Velasquez stopping Brock Lesnar in the first round?
Mark Coleman: I was just incredibly amazed at Cain Velasquez’s calmness and his skill level and his cardio. I’ve heard about all these great attributes that he has, but I had to see it myself to believe it and yes I am a believer. In my opinion he’s the best in the world right now. I was amazed, impressed, any words you can use for it. The guy’s incredible.
TheGARV.com: People are saying that Brock's chin is suspect. What's your take?
Mark Coleman: That’s kind of been the word on Brock for a long time. Everybody says for some reason he doesn’t have a chin, he can’t take a punch, this and that. I’m not an expert on that subject, but he has seemed to go down a couple times with nothing special on the punches, so maybe that is a big weakness for Brock. If that’s the case, that’s not a good problem to have in mixed martial arts.
