He lost the heavyweight title a year ago at 45 years old, and won ‘Battle Of The Night’ for his last execution against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in September.

Time is against him be that as it may and however his heart and assurance can’t be scrutinized, Coleman’s vocation has all the earmarks of being on re-appropriated time. His triumph at UFC 100 may turn out to be a fitting last hurrah for a contender who will have a perpetual place in the UFC record books.
