My name is Bobby Razak I just wanted to come on the forum and speak a little about Mark Coleman.
Mark and Kevin also gave me my first break in this biz almost 11 -12 years ago. Mark opened a lot of doors for me, he even fought for me for free in pit fight to help a young upcoming filmmaker. I saw him and filmed him many times all over the world including many great battles in japan with Pride.
I went to Vegas to see him fight with Randy at ufc 106 and also to take the Ruffo Bros to show them there new commercial on the jumbo tron. Sitting in the audience with the fans I had one thought in mind, mma please don't forget this man . Mma please keep helping this man.
I saw his payout for this fight 60k. 60k will be gone soon after taxes , management , training expenses that cash wont last more than 9 months.
I filmed a doc called fallen soldier on my friend ex middleweight champion Gerald Mclellan. The thing I found out that boxing does not give a fuck about its own and let G-Man rot in Freeport, while his two sisters work in 12 hour shifts to look after him, to let him know in the darkness that he will be ok.
This post is not about G-Man but about Mark. Why am I writing this??? I want Mark to be ok I want him to have a happy and fruitful life deserving of a legend like him. I want mma to be diff.
I hope he finds his way after mma. I hope the powers that be will keep looking out for him, keep him in the mix. Help him find his way as he transitions to life after competing. Mark is great he even made it to the Olympics in Barcelona.
Mark you are a legend and thank you for all your help I wont forget that. To the powers that be DONT FORGET HIM and others in his situation.
