UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman turned his Olympic wrestling skills into MMA success, becoming the first UFC heavyweight champion and PRIDE Grand Prix champion. Known as 'the godfather of ground & pound,' the legendary Coleman now works to repair the strained relationship with his older daughters as he relishes a new title: Stay-at-home dad.

He seemed estranged from his daughters which is sad. You can tell they’re self absorbed teenagers

are these the two daughters who came into the PRIDE ring after his fight with FEDOR with his face busted up and them crying while he introduced them to the man who had just pummeled him?

Agreed also the way he hugged them at the end looked genuine on his part but they looked a bit uncomfortable, probably there mother has been wispering poison in there ears about him for years.

I've met Coleman a few times backstage at regional shows and the best word I can describe him as is intense. He genuinely cared about his fighters and lived through them. 

This interview is also 17 min long so it's lacking the word FUCK about 100x

There seems to be some odd law of nature that makes the biggest grizzliest guys have the sweetiest most adorable daughters.  Happy for the Hammer.

Of all the other things about Mark why just go straight to the mans worst flaw? A lot of people struggle with alcohol and addiction and Mark still became a champion even with that going on. Respect the man a little more instead of just judging him by that one label an "alcoholic"

If people think Mark gets drunk at shows and is an asshole then my advice is to stay away from him lol. Alcohol does shit to people

I didn't know about the alcohol thing, but I found the video moving. He's clearly upset and hoping to rebuild some sort of relationship with his daughters and seems very genuine and humble.

That or they've seen Dad drunk and angry a few more times than any one of us would ever want to. I'm not saying one way or the other because I know how teenage girls can be. But if you are a big strong man who has been hit in the head too many times and drink too much there could be a whole fucking lot more to it than you guys are taking into account. Some people fuck things up so bad in their personal relationships they spend the rest of their lives trying to fix them. I hope the best for Mark and his family. The dude has a huge heart and I hope he can find happiness.

Huh? 

"We're really proud of everything you accomplished" 

"Are you?" 

"Very"

"I've written so many essays about you." 

Looked to me like they still love him very much.

You don’t think a confrontational alcoholic caveman of a father could have given them good reason to leave?

Hi Mark.

 

I didn't think you still posted here.  Good to see you are doing well.

 

Best of luck.

Its easy to see people in an edited, artificial setting and draw conclusions about  what's going on in a relationship.  Families are complex.  Coleman, like all of us, is far from perfect. But I think his heart is in the right place, which amounts to something.
