It looks like it’s the end of the road between Mark Coleman and the UFC, as FiveOuncesofPain.com has recently been able to confirm through sources close to the situation that the UFC Hall of Famer has been released from the promotion following the recent defeat at the hands of fellow MMA legend, Randy Couture.

Then what's up with this?

"Although Five Ounces of Pain reported on Wednesday that Coleman has been released from the promotion, Coleman said he hasn't talked with UFC President Dana White, UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta or anyone else at the UFC about what his future with the promotion might be."

Bad idea IMO, if they cut Coleman it looks really bad for 2 reasons. 1. Cutting a HOFer isn't a great idea and 2. Makes Randy's title shot look even worse by beating a guy they just cut.

Damn I havent been on since sunday. Randy is getting a title shot!!?? Is that confirmed? Also if Coleman was cut that is a bad play by the UFC. Just tell the guy to retire, and let him.

This doesnt make much sense. Beat Randy and you're in the mix for title contention. Lose and you're gone. ????

He deserved one more fight. Randy should also be insulted.

I know Coleman is old, but he looked real old vs Couture. He beat Bonnar the fight before and looked half way decent, but it's time to hang em up. Maybe 1 more fight and retire. Btw, if he fought Tito, I think Ortiz would win easily

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I agree they should have asked him to retire but as for deserving one more fight did you watch the fight with couture sorry but he did not even come close to deserving another fight that was one of the most lopsided matches I have ever seen there is no reason to make a hall of famer look like a chump by letting him get demolished again

From undercard,to main event,to being cut.


I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Regardless,this does not look good on any front.
I hope A HOF fighter gets better treatment than this.

My two cents is the man deserved at least one more fight. He's a legend. That should count for something. That's a bullshit move on the UFC. Let the man go out at least with a win.

this is pretty stupid IMO, Coleman's only lost 2 fights in the UFC, to Shogun and Couture, both very game fighters....

He doesn't have back to back losses on his record and they could easily market a fight with him and Tito after Chuck smashes Tito for a 3rd time.

Don't really make sense to me.

I forgot that that was the main(shouldn't have been), on one of the bigger cards of the year(sb weekend), how the hell do you justify people that they watched a card(paid $50) that the main was a loser leaves town match....wow.

i really think that a hall of famer should never get cut. if that means the ufc just doesnt give him any more fights than so be it but it just looks like the ufc doesnt care about coleman. he didnt look good on sat but who cares, hes the hammer
