"The Godfather of Ground and Pound" may have stepped into the octagon for his final time.

Following Mark Coleman's second-round loss to fellow UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture in the main event of Saturday night's UFC 109 event, UFC president Dana White told a small group of reporters that "The Hammer" was likely done fighting for the organization.

"I think tonight was probably Coleman's last fight in the UFC," White said.

"I'm not taking anything away from Mark Coleman," White said. "I have nothing but respect for him, and I'll say this now, too: Mark Coleman has always been a stand-up guy to me.

"He'll always be a part of this organization. I just think he'll have a hard time competing with the guys at the top level. Age is a factor with him."

"This fight was a dream for Coleman," White said. "It was a dream of his to fight Randy Couture, and he wanted this thing bad. He said it best at the press conference. He said, 'Randy Couture has accomplished a lot of things and has a lot of things. I want to take some of those things from him Saturday night.'

"He went in there, and he wasn't able to do anything. He didn't get off. Randy pretty much beat him everywhere."

"Is a fighter ever accepting – or any top athlete?" White asked MMAjunkie.com. "It's tough to say, 'It's over, and I've got to hang it up.'

"It's the toughest thing in the world, and I hate dealing with it. It sucks."

Coleman says he ain't done, so he'll probably get one more fight.

He shouldn't have been headlining in the 1st place, but that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve a spot on the card.

Coleman looked awful. I was surprised that they even made this fight happen. He has had a great career, but it is definitely OVER at this point

I don't think he should be cut, he can still fight but not against top fighters. Couture can still fight with elite fighters. Don't cut Coleman, the UFC doesn't have to put him on the main card. Hope they keep him around.
