I talked to Mark Coleman at UFC 167 on Saturday night. We looked back on his proudest moments, the sad day they eliminated headbutts, and then discussed his current gig as an assistant coach for BJ Penn's team on the currently filming season of TUF:

“It’s rejuvenating me,” Coleman said. “It saved me a little bit. It brought the energy back, to the point where, like any other fighter, I want to fight again, really. Maybe it’s too late. Who knows? I would never say never. I won’t be stupid enough to get in there with Jon ‘Bones’ Jones or anything like that, or Daniel Cormier. I’m past that time. But I could certainly compete with certain guys out there, and if somebody wants to see it, I can’t say never.”

Coleman needs to go to Bellator or WSOF and smash Tito good if Tito can make it to the fight

He mentioned it at the q&a when a decent question about having a legends coach a tuf was brought up....not a bad idea to get the noobs to learn about the legends.

Same here, that is the biggest real beef rivalry never settled, and I think if Coleman is game, someone should take advantage of it and would make a nice event out of it.

I LOVE Mark Coleman. With that being said, I'd rather not watch him fight anymore.

I LOVE the idea of using charismatic legends like Mark as the coaches on TUF. I hate when they use relevant fighters as the coaches, tying up divisions in the process.

It would give some of these guys a legitimate chance of staying in the sport, without them having to fight too long. Imagine Coleman and Liddell as the coaches. I could make a list of 20 guys that would easily qualify..

Hate to say it, but Tito would crush Coleman.

I just want to see him bash Tito's face into a jelly, after that happy retirement.
