It all started last fall when Tito Ortiz called Mark Coleman a sissy for pulling out of their scheduled fight at UFC 106. Mark Coleman’s manager retaliated by getting a little too personal and taking shots at Tito’s girlfriend, ex-porn queen Jenna Jameson.
“The only thing Coleman is afraid of when it comes to Tito is contracting swine flu from that dirty ass d-bag. We all know where he lays his head down at night. Tito wants to get personal with a legend? OK, let’s get personal – we can all go to our porn collections and watch what Tito sleeps with night after night.”
Mark Coleman never approved of the message his manager sent, and at the time it seemed Tito was going to let it go. Fast forward a few months and it’s become clear he isn’t. During Mark Coleman’s post-fight interview at UFC 109, Tito yelled, “Payback’s a bitch motherfucker,” while Jenna Jameson walked by the cage flipping Coleman off. It was obviously a difficult moment for Coleman who was just minutes removed from losing what he called his dream fight. Coleman, never one to keep his emotions in check, immediately jumped on the mic and blurted back, “Fuck you, Tito… Any fucking time, Tito. Anytime, douchebag.”
Whether Coleman will admit it to himself or not, it’s apparent his time as a UFC fighter is rapidly coming to an end. Still, if there’s one more fight left in the UFC for Coleman, it’s Tito Ortiz. That’s if Dana White keeps him on the roster, and by the way Dana was talking after last night’s event it doesn’t sound like he will be. A Coleman-Tito grudge match might not even be enough to convince Dana to give Coleman one last fight.
“I think tonight was probably Coleman’s last fight in the UFC. I just think he’ll have a hard time competing with the guys at the top of the level. Age is a factor with him…Tito’s talking [expletive] to Coleman after Coleman just lost this fight that he’s wanted his whole life? Tito’s fighting Chuck [Liddell]. I’m not even thinking Tito-Coleman.”
Mark Coleman isn’t the only fighter in serious danger of being cut. Dana also mentioned that Frank Trigg is probably on his way out in an interview with Fox Fight Game.
