    Most of them probably have no idea who he is?

    Sad.

    Colmen is a legend.
    Gibson is a moron.

    But, funny enough Robbie just walked out to a song from Braveheart lol.

    That's because most people in the crowd are filthy casuals.

    Why would casuals know who Mark Coleman is? It’s not like the IFC promotes him or anything

    He's the Godfather of Ground and Pound. When I first saw him fight, I didn't think he would ever lose.

    Weird to see the masses cheer for a global showbusiness megastar and not so much for an MMA fighter who was in his prime way before UFC went truly mainstream?

    I mean, it is unfortunate, yes, but this wasn't a hall of fame ceremony, just another entertainment show for the masses. Few were there for the history, but something to do for the night.
