  • UFC 109 Post-Mortem: Falling Hammer, Sonnen, More By: Jake Rossen



    Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com


    A fighter with indomitable will to succeed is a powerful thing. Leading into his UFC 109 bout with Randy Couture, Mark Coleman was exemplifying the kind of grit and attrition that had marked some of the bigger milestones in his career. If you didn’t expect him to win, you had to at least expect a fight.

    His supporters got sobered up quickly. From bell one on Saturday, Coleman had no answers for a man several months older than himself: Couture beat him to the punch, time and again, worked him over in a clinch, and finally locked in a choke. It was a match between a wrestler-turned-MMA-fighter and a wrestler who fights in MMA. A marked difference.

    Aided by Coleman’s frozen offense, Couture produced the kind of footage that will probably help propel him into an umpteenth title bid. And why not? There are few stories as enduring as Couture’s ability to remain a highly capable underdog. The suspense is leaking out, but Couture against Lyoto Machida is a big business fight. And the UFC is all business.

    For purists, the real main event came 20 minutes prior when Chael Sonnen had the best -- and unlikeliest -- performance of his career, battering Nate Marquardt from inside Marquardt’s guard for 15 solid minutes. Sonnen has all the wrestling ability in the world, but was never able to put a complete game together for any consistent success. Now 3-1 in the UFC’s middleweight division, he could find himself up against Anderson Silva next. It may not be the reward he was expecting.
