UFC give tickets to legendary fighter and family after fighting back from hospital bed

Mark Coleman will attend UFC 300 after his incredible courage to save his parents.

The UFC legend was airlifted to hospital in critical condition after bravely saving his parents and family from a house fire last month, which left him suffering significant hospital care.

Coleman, who retired from MMA in 2010, is now out of the hospital after receiving medical help for a severe smoke expiration, and has even returned to the gym and started training again.

In a new social media post, Coleman revealed that his former promotion, the UFC, recognized his courage by awarding him and his family tickets to the UFC 300 mega event in Las Vegas.

He was seen working out in the video attached to the post, carrying weights while shadow boxing on camera in his enthusiasm.

And the caption explained his actions in the video, which read: “I’m so excited today. The UFC is bringing me and giving me and my daughters tickets to the biggest show ever, l UFC 300 in Las Vegas.

“So excited, let’s go. The BMF belt is the one I’m excited about. The main event is also huge. The whole card is sick. See you soon.

“What a great day to be alive, be the best version of yourself that you can be. You never know when you will need it.

“Sober is a cool carnivore diet, nine ancestral tenants. Hammer House for life.”

Coleman is simply grateful to be with his family after this heartbreaking incident and breaks down in tears during an emotional reunion with his family.

“The Hammer” has a great relationship with the UFC, having fought other big names during his tenure with the promotion, including Randy Couture and Stephan Bonnar.

He will have a particularly keen eye on the BMF title clash between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway, and the latter has even suggested he should hand the belt to the winner on the night.

He told MMA Junkie: “The only right answer is Mark Coleman.

“Especially with what he’s been through recently with his dog and his dog waking him up to go save his stuff and he gets in there and runs for his dog?

“This guy is a G. He’s a real BMF. It would be sick if he did it. It would be an honor to convince him to do it.”
