Default Mark Coleman finally retires.........

BORKED

This is sad to see and sad to hear. He just looks like a really old man. The once mighty Coleman needs a hip replacement at the young age of 48! A fricking hip replacement!!!
He's even slurring his words and sounds punch drunk. The years of wear and tear are finally catching up on him in a big way. And he doesn't even have the insurance to pay for his treatment instead, rather MMA Elite are paying for it. Props to Elite but Coleman needs help.

I hope he is just drunk drunk in that clip and not punch drunk.

Could be a combination.

Me too. But considering what Goodridge is going through who was also part of HH i wouldn't be surprised. Plus with the amount of drugs he's abused his entire career its no wonder his body is failing him. Its been failing him since the early PRIDE years. Dam Mark looks bad.

Steroids can really **** a person up both mentally and physically.
At my old job some of men working there used steroids in their younger days and today at around the age of 40-45 they make my father who is 65 years old and have a pretty hefty belly look like a pro athlete

Look at what getting of the juice has done to his body.

Even though I know a lot about what happens to fighters after their careers end, this is like a knife to the heart.

Abused steroids to the max in an era where it was an underground sport. If he was drug free going through the ranks now he wouldn't even get a UFC contract..... that goes with Ken Shammrock as well.

Not just steroids. Marks problem like Kerr's were drug related. But if he has to have a hip replacement at 48 the dudes obviously in a really bad way.

Love me some Hammer, but it seems to his destiny that he will end up being the old slurring wino at the end of the bar boring everyone with oft repeated ''I was in the UFC once...'' type ramblings

Sad to see, but he is a true MMA legend and pioneer. He had a great career

Coleman always fought with his heart on his sleeve. Intense man in the cage.

Unfortunately it's obvious to anyone that he abused the hell out of his body and I'm fairly shocked that he's still going until now.

I remember him at UFC 93 where he fought Shogun in Ireland. He put in an immense effort but he was obviously well past it, he was already in the hall of fame FFS. That was years ago, bloke needed to call it quits years ago. Great career

He's a bully and a drug addict. Hopefully he gets his life turned around.
