After losing his “dream” fight to Randy Couture at “UFC 109 : Relentless” last night, Mark Coleman now finds himself at the end of the road.

UFC President Dana White said following the loss, “I think tonight was probably Coleman’s last fight in the UFC.”

If true, Coleman won’t have his chance to get back at Tito Ortiz who talked trash to the MMA pioneer immediately after he lost.

Although we don’t know exactly what Ortiz said to Coleman, Joe Rogan tweeted that it was along the lines of, “payback’s a [expletive].”

Either way, it looks like the career of the first UFC heavyweight champion has now come to an end.

“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,” White continued to say at the post-fight press conference.

Having met Mark in the past on multiple occasions, I can honestly say that he really is one of the nicest guys in the sport, and it will be tough to see him go out this way.
