No idea what you're talking about with Lesnar and Coleman. Lesnar had been training MMA for two years before his UFC debut and was matched up hard from his first match. Coleman was an elder statesman of the sport that likewise was put up against real opponents. A far cry from Strikeforce finding warm bodies to feed to Walker.
Brock Lesnar had 1 fight.
Coleman was main event and then got cut.
Lashley was a wrestler and Walker was an elite athlete who is a black belt in TKD.
Personally, I don't mind Royce in an exhibition bout or if he is matched at his level. Someone old who wants to still fight. Royce vs Ken?!?!?!
