UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman from hospital bed: ‘I’m the happiest man in the world’


In a video posted to his Facebook page, UFC Hall of Famer and former Ohio State wrestler Mark Coleman declared himself “the happiest man in the world” from his bed in the hospital on the morning of Tuesday following a house fire that woke him up in the day. Coleman, who is 59, suffering from inhaling smoke and was taken by helicopters to a Toledo ProMedica on Tuesday. According to an Instagram post by his daughter Morgan, he had already taken both of his parents out of their Fremont house when he attempted to save the family dog, a Rottweiler named Hammer.

In the fire, Hammer perished.

His family posted pictures of him being intubated at the hospital right after the fire on a GoFundMe page. However, Coleman is seen conversing and giving his daughters a hug while sitting up in bed in a fresh video that his daughter Kenzie uploaded early on Thursday morning. Coleman said, “God, I’m so lucky.” She was crying. “I can’t believe my parents are alive.” Since the house was already completely destroyed by fire, Coleman stated he “had to make a decision”. He claimed that after going back in to fetch Hammer, he “couldn’t find air.”

According to Kenzie Coleman, her father is breathing on his own.

“God is wonderful. “Miracles do occur,” the author stated. In just one day, the GoFundMe has already raised close to $66,000. Chief of the Ballville Volunteer Fire Department Bill Lagrou earlier stated that it took eight hours and the assistance of seven different departments to extinguish the house fire. “The house is finished. At the time, Lagrou declared, “The house is gone.” Our phone rang at four this morning. Six additional departments were present as well.”

Coleman was a former PRIDE Grand Prix winner and the first-ever UFC heavyweight champion. Coleman, often known as “The Father of Ground-and-Pound,” was admitted into the UFC Hall of Fame’s fighter and pioneer wings. In 1988, Coleman won an NCAA wrestling championship while attending Ohio State. Coleman had a heart attack in 2020 and spent time in treatment for alcoholism in 2021. Since then, he has utilized his experiences to encourage sobriety and good living through social media posts.
