Coleman Heads To Wolfslair Before Dublin

Quote:


As UFC Hall of Famer Mark "The Hammer" Coleman readies for his return to the Octagon for the first time since 1999, he plans on leaving for Ireland a little bit earlier than expected to get past the travel woes and will work with a top U.K. team in those final days.

Traveling is nothing new to Coleman who fought for the Pride organization for many years. The former UFC heavyweight champion regularly made trips from his home in Columbus, Ohio, to Japan.

While this trip is a much shorter flight to Dublin, Ireland, the former Ohio State wrestler asked the UFC for a little more time overseas to get ready for the fight.

"For me it's going to be a shorter flight compared to in the past, but they were scheduled to bring me in on the 12th or 13th, which is only four days out and fortunately I asked them if I could get over there a little bit early and they've been great to me," Coleman told MMAWeekly Radio recently. "They've been treating me very good and they had no problem sending me over there a little bit early."

As Coleman prepares for his new life as a fighter in the 205-pound weight class, he will first fly to England before heading to Dublin for a chance to work with a top U.K. team in the final days leading up to the his match-up against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

"The Wolfslair team over there in England, they're going to take care of me for the first three days over there," Coleman stated. "I'm going to train with those guys for a couple days and then fly over to Dublin from England."

The team at the Wolfslair has gained quite a bit of notoriety lately beyond just working with middleweight star Michael Bisping. The team also worked with and helped lead Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Cheick Kongo to victories in their fights at UFC 92 in December.

Coleman worked with his regular team at Hammer House in Columbus for his fight preparation, but the Wolfslair team will round out his final days before he re-enters the Octagon.

Coleman takes on Shogun on Jan. 17 in Dublin, Ireland as part of the co-main event for UFC 93.

Well it's only for a few days, maybe they're going to help him cut all that weight.

Is Coleman back in the title picture if he takes Shogun down and gives him a knuckle sandwich for 3 rounds

Not a surprise Rampage and Coleman have always been friends Rampage cornered Coleman the first time Coleman fought Shogun.

If he beats Rua, he would probably fight someone like Jardine or Bonnar. I have picked Coleman to win this fight, but I'm not sure if he'll be a real contender or not.

You picked Coleman...., seriously and no offence intended but what makes you think he stands any chance against Shogun?
I will take sig bet

Because I think Coleman will manage to avoid getting caught in anything, and will grind out a decision. I don't see Shogun winning a decision, so he will have to finish the fight.

I think it all depends on Coleman's cardio, but he should have a significant strength advantage. We may see a fight similar to Bader/Marshall. Shogun has only fought a 15 minute fight twice.

Will I be surprised if Shogun catches Coleman? Not at all. Am I willing to bet money on Coleman? Lol no way

They were actually 20 minute fights not 15. Also have you seen the first fight in about 2 minutes Coleman had a hell of a time defending Shogun's submissions.
