Earlier this week Mark Coleman announced that he will fight no more in the cage forever, and faces a total hip replacement. Entire cost of the surgery is $100,000, a sum well beyond his current means.
In amazingly great news, Coleman's longtime sponsor MMAElite stepped up and is covering the cost of the surgery.
An emotion Coleman, offered his thanks.
"I gotta thank MMA Elite," said Coleman. "Without them, I would be in a lot of trouble. They've sponsored me for a long time - I've been with them since the beginning.
They've stuck with me and you know after you're done fighting, I'll tell you what you've got to dig deep and find out what you're going to do next. And I'll tell you what, Im still trying to figure it out.
But MMA Elite, Pro Elite, thank you so much. I love you, and I appreciate everything you have done for me. Without them I'd be in a lot of trouble.
But Im going to fight on. I'm not a quitter. I'm going to keep fighting on.
