Mark Coleman and Randy Couture Like Chael Sonnen and Gray Maynard


With a new generation of fighters constantly emerging, some of the older big-name MMA stars look at who they see as a parallel to them.

Mark Coleman (16-10) sees Chael Sonnen (27-12-1) in himself because of how he plans out a fight.

"He goes out there with the game plan that I'm going to take you down, hold you down and stick to this game plan," said Coleman. "There's a strategy involved there and he does it the best."

Randy Couture (19-11) thinks that Gray Maynard (11-1-1 NC) is like him with his relentlessness.

"I've been around him since he first stepped on when we were training at the UFC training center," said Couture. "When I saw him, the little bulldog that he was, come in there and how he's sharpened his striking. He's defiantly one of my favorite fighters."
