Mark Coleman Confirmed for UFC Hall-of-Fame


(The foot of a champion.)

Though reports about Mark Coleman‘s induction into the UFC’s Hall of Fame have been swirling for a month, the UFC officially confirmed it today — Coleman will get the honor at UFC 82, which takes place in his hometown of Columbus, OH. Coleman’s career highlights include winning the UFC’s first heavyweight title and stepping on Wanderlei Silva‘s head during a melee after his fight with Mauricio Rua at PRIDE 31.

As for the next fighter to follow Coleman into the UFC’s Hall of Fame, Dana White was quoted in an ESPN.com article as saying that Tank Abbott “absolutely will be in our Hall of Fame” when he officially retires. White also called Tank’s fight with Kimbo Slice “a farce.” Man, does he love that word or what! Unrelated but awesome Tank Abbott quote from the ESPN article: “I was in really great shape. Don’t judge a book by looking at the cover. Just because I got blubber on me, that’s genetics basically, thanks to my mother.”

Mark Coleman deserves being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame because was the first to utilize ground and pound. He paid his dues. I grew up with mark and his brother in Fremont, Ohio and he is a family fan but loves the fight game too. I hung out with him this past weekend and talked about his career and his love for fighting and competion. He's just one of the guys. He'll be back this fall as long as the UFC comes through with a two-fight contract. Absolutley have no idea who'll fight, but Mark said he will be healthy and ready to go.

Mark coleman doesnt deserve it. He sucked in the UFC and PRIDE. He was a jerkoff to other fighters and after hearing about crocop leaving the UFC, he ran his mouth even tho crocop destroyed coleman. Seriously the guy has steroid cereal for breakfast and the TRUTH is, hes one of the worst fighters in mma today. POlus theres better long time UFC fighters that deserve it. Coleman left UFC as soon as he was getting his ass beat and left to another organization to get his ass beat some more. Dana white your a fuckin moron to decide to give him that.

That "honor" would probably go to fellow Hammer House member Mark Kerr.
