Tonight during the UFC 82 PPV show, the Ultimate Fighting Championships inducted Mark “The Hammer” Coleman into the UFC hall of fame.
While we were expecting a “walk into the sunset” type speech from the hall of famer, instead Coleman surprisingly announced that he will be taking on former WWE superstar Brock Lesnar at UFC 87 August in Minneapolis, Minnesota .
The 44 year old fighter has fought everyone from Fedor Emelianenko, Mirko Cro Cop, UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Don Frye, Gary Goodridge and Pedro Rizzo, first appearing back at UFC 10.
Heres a clip from his speech tonight:
“The fans want to see me, I’m gonna pay my dues, and I’m gonna do the best I can. He (Lesnar) is a beast, he’s an animal, but don’t bet the house against me. I’m gonna bring something for Brock Lesnar and I’m gonna beat his butt.”
