UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman Hospitalized Saving Parents from Fire

Mark Coleman is a hero. Not just in the cage, but in real life too. He saved his parents from a house fire in Fremont, Ohio. Then, he dashed back into the flames for his dog. Sadly, he ended up in the hospital, fighting for his life.

“Mark’s the kind of guy who beats death,” someone tweeted. It’s hard not to agree.

There was talk of a book about his life. What a story that would have been. A tale of bravery, inside the ring and out.

Mark’s daughter, Morgan, shared the news on Instagram. The UFC Hall of Famer is now in critical condition. Smoke inhalation is a cruel adversary.

“Our dad is our hero,” Morgan wrote. Despite his efforts, their dog Hammer didn’t make it. The loss is profound. “Hammer house for life,” she added, a tribute to their fallen pet.

The fire took everything. Seven fire departments fought the blaze. The roof caved in. The cause? It started in the kitchen, but specifics remain unknown.

Jonathan Snowden shared a grim photo. The remains of the Coleman family home. “Mark’s dog Hammer woke him up,” Snowden noted. Without Hammer, things could have been even worse.

Wes Sims, a friend and fellow fighter, believes in the power of prayer. He’s seen Mark’s condition firsthand. “If anyone can fight through this, it’s Mark,” Sims said.

Mark Coleman isn’t just any fighter. He’s a legend. The first UFC heavyweight champion. A Pride Grand Prix winner. His induction into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2008 was a no-brainer.

Morgan Coleman’s Instagram post is a window into their world right now. It’s filled with love, loss, and the fight of a lifetime.
