the ultimate warrior on the planet

shift

[Applause]

[Music]

this is positions showdown for the ufc

heavyweight championship those kicks

will take their toll

i don't know if coleman got the energy

right now to go and shoot again for a

single or double legs

it is underway the heavyweight

championship in the ufc

and he knew he had to be composed here

don't try to rush anything

[Applause]

of kevin randleman the side of the head

he's coming up to the side

which is legal is picking up some

much-needed points here in these last

couple of minutes partner

and it's because

it's over 21 minutes the heavyweight

championship

goes the distance

there is a lot of feeling of vengeance

right here

randleman takes the center of the ring

shoots immediately

i mean this man was absolutely beside

himself

after the decision

he tried to lift williams williams

stopped him and then randleman got

caught in a back arched position and i

thought

i know williams was going to land in the

mount nice trip

kevin active a right and a left that

takedown may have wrapped up the

heavyweight championship for kevin

randleman well if he doesn't get caught

like that

and yes oh another oh a combination

perhaps the explanation

and the bell sounds

randleman couture here tonight in the

year 2000 there we go
