"I'm not sure," Coleman said when asked if the UFC has released him. "I really don't want to comment on that right now until I know the situation."
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.
"I'm definitely going to keep fighting," Coleman said. "I'm still trying to figure out what's going on. I want to fight in the UFC. I want to beat Tito Ortiz -- bad -- but really I just want to fight in the UFC."
If the UFC isn't an option for Coleman, other promotions might be. In Japan, Dream is planning a light heavyweight tournament this year, and Coleman -- who's popular in Japan from his days fighting in Pride -- would be a natural fit for that tournament.
"I just need to train harder," Coleman said. "I need to work harder."
