Dana White comments on Mark Coleman

Postby DreadLobster » Mon Mar 11, 2013 1:41 pm

Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole reports:

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Mark Coleman, age 48, recently announced his retirement due to hip replacement surgery.

At an impromptu press conference in Las Vegas this morning, a tearful Dana White took the stage.

Image

"To be honest, some of these guys don't know when to stop. I mean, its not my place to tell them. But you see these guys getting older, and its just bad news. They need to think about the future more. They don't plan ahead when they're young. To tell the truth, the day he left the UFC we knew this was coming. These guys go fight in other smaller promotions, just cashing in on a fuckin' name. You end your career getting finished 8 times, like all by fuckin' knockout... it's just sad man.

It's always tough when the sport loses such a legend though, I mean, this guy's done it all. Of course our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones."

Pictured: loved ones.

One confused reporter cited that Coleman's last fight was in fact in the UFC, and that he'd only been knocked out twice.

"What? That's insane." Dana fired back. "The guy was fighting all over. Japan, Europe. Listen: We don't allow that shit in the UFC, I mean, unless the fighter was British. Our guys' health always comes first. But he was a grown man, I mean what can you do. He didn't fight for us since like '96."

More confused reporters tried to speak up, while another UFC official whispered something in Dana's ear.

"Huh? Oh shit." A flustered White mumbled. "Who?"

"Do you even know who Mark Coleman is?" interjected Yahoo's own Dave Meltzer.

Before placing a hand over the microphone, a visibly annoyed Dana lashed out at his staff, ignoring questions from reporters. "Retired? I thought that guy fuckin' died like 6 years ago! Son of a bitch."

Image

After several extremely tense and awkward minutes, White composed himself and turned his attention back to the crowd. "Yeah. You... What?"

A reporter asked Dana about Coleman's disappointing last fight in the promotion, against fellow UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, in early 2010.

Interrupting, Dana responded "Are you fuckin' high? Why the... the fuck would we put [Mark] Coleman against Randy Couture in 2010? That's the craziest fuckin' thing I've ever heard. Unbelievable."

Image


Ariel Helwani, of MMAfighting.com, started to say something, but wisely didn't, as Dana banned several more reporters from future UFC press conferences before leaving the stage.



RIP The Maniac

did this really happen? if it did, Dana's the one with the fucked up head, and it hasn't been hit in years... i'm sure he has a lot on his plate, but even I remember colemans fights against shogun and couture... weren't this his last two?

Account bet lost. Thanks Frank Mir for the worst display in your career. That was the most boring fight I have seen in a long time and maybe it's time for you to hang them up!

I love when a parody is way over the top, and yet so close to the truth, that people aren't sure whether it's real.
