Mark Coleman Heads To Wolfslair Prior To UFC 93 Bout

0

MMAWeekly.com Radio recently had Mark Coleman as a guest and he filled them in on his plans to train at Team Wolfslair prior to his UFC 93 rematch with SHogun Rua:

As UFC Hall of Famer Mark “The Hammer” Coleman readies for his return to the Octagon for the first time since 1999, he plans on leaving for Ireland a little bit earlier than expected to get past the travel woes and will work with a top U.K. team in those final days.

Traveling is nothing new to Coleman who fought for the Pride organization for many years. The former UFC heavyweight champion regularly made trips from his home in Columbus, Ohio, to Japan.

While this trip is a much shorter flight to Dublin, Ireland, the former Ohio State wrestler asked the UFC for a little more time overseas to get ready for the fight.

“For me it's going to be a shorter flight compared to in the past, but they were scheduled to bring me in on the 12th or 13th, which is only four days out and fortunately I asked them if I could get over there a little bit early and they've been great to me,” Coleman told MMAWeekly Radio recently. “They've been treating me very good and they had no problem sending me over there a little bit early.”
