    Looking at where he's posting the picture at (assuming it's his home) he certainly does look broke. :p

    It's a 20k dust magnet. I'd rather the cash myself

    It's a "it's that or me" thing?

    The bigger question is why anybody would want it if they didn't win it? Retail value of it is probably a couple of hundred bucks purchased brand new.

    Always picked German cars myself. I used them for work then so they did the job well.
    Now I've no need to speed around and downsized.

    To hold a piece of history, I guess?

    he must be having money issues or he parted with it long ago and someone else is reselling it.

    like said above, how can you sell a piece of history? Especially IF YOU MADE IT HISTORY!? I could not fathom selling a token of your accomplishments in your life for some measly money? pass it down to your next generation in your family, man . this is just sad in so many ways. Coleman made himself a legend among japanese masses long before UFC got big over in his native USA or worldwide for that matter.

    I could see the appeal. I'd be tempted to buy a pair of gloves or shorts Chuck Liddell fought in for instance. Just not for 25 grand.

    I guess then it would have to mean some thing to you. To me that is wasted money!

    He's not that smart, he should be trying to sell it in Japan, where he is adored more and could probably get more for it. The trophy isn't a piece of history, it's a token of a piece of history, his accomplishments in the ring. Nobody can ever take that away from him. With or without the trophy, he did what he did. It's like a black belt, it's just a symbol, not the ability that it is supposed to represent.

    Oh goodness I wouldn't be caught dead spending that kind of money on someone elses' trophy. The trophy really doesn't hold any value to me, but I can see why someone else might want to go for it.

    That's a good way of looking at it.

    To me, this trophy kinda reminds me of my father first buying a Hardy Allcock Aerial (it's an old school centrepin reel from around late 1800's - extremely early 1900's). Looks like this:

    My father went nuts over it the first time he got one on the cheap, where as I always thought it was an interesting looking bit of junk. But to him it represented a point in fishing history, an icon of an age gone by and had immense emotional value to him, which made it much more valuable.
