A night already steeped in history took an unexpected, heartwarming turn at UFC 300. This landmark event, the 300th in the organization's storied history, witnessed the emotional return of UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman.
"God was with me about a month ago and he got me through the scariest night of my life. We came through with my mom & dad still alive/ I did not have quite enough in me to get my dog, Hammer but he will always be with me for the rest of my life. He meant the world to me, he was my first dog ever and until you have a dog you don't get it and I did not get it so I got one. I got three daughters and Hammer was my son, he woke me and he is a hero," said Mark Coleman when asked about the tragic incident.
Just weeks prior, the MMA community rallied around Coleman after a house fire ravaged his home. Despite injuries sustained in the blaze, his tenacity shone through in a viral video showing him back in training, jokingly claiming to be the "backup for every fighter" on the UFC 300 card.
“I’m not comfortable being called a hero. I just did what I think anybody would’ve did. I am proud of myself but my daughter were bedside with me the whole time. It was a close call and I was scared. I got through it and it was a close call. When I opened my eyes a couple days later, my daughter's I got to hug the, show my rejoice for just being here, being alive. I always say tomorrow is not a promise but it has a new meaning to me now," he added .
The UFC, deeply touched by Coleman's bravery, honored the great and gave him the opportunity to walk down the halls where he once ruled and make his way to the octagon with the world acknowledging his heroics.
