UFC 106 Co-Main Event: Mark Coleman vs. Tito Ortiz

18/08/09 - Coleman v Tito at UFC 106

Mark íThe Hammerí Coleman will face Tito Ortiz at UFC 106 which takes place on November 21st in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A source close to Coleman told Fighters Only the veteran fighter and former light-heavyweight champion agreed to the match and date earlier today.

The fight had already been widely speculated on message boards since Ortiz dropped hints in interviews, but was not made definite until today.

Coleman was the first ever UFC heavyweight champion, claiming the belt at UFC 12 with a submission win over Dan Severn.

However, he lost it in his next fight and it would be three years before he hit the top of the MMA world again, this time by triumphing in the PRIDE FC 2000 Open Weight Grand Prix.

Ortiz returned to the UFC last month when Affliction ceased activities as a mixed martial arts promoter. Strikeforce was the only other viable destination but did not promise the kind of revenues available through fighting for the UFC.

He was the UFC light-heavyweight champion from 2000 to 2003 and is also famous for his publicly acrimonious relationship with UFC president Dana White.
maybe rumor, maybe fact....

i find it funny that because Coleman could not face Brock last year, Randy fought him. now Brock's the champ and Coleman is on the same card as him... one weight class lower.... kind of sends a message.

Hopefully Coleman beat Tio for old times sake. He would have seriously resurected his career with back to back wins over Stephen Bonnar and Tito Ortiz.
