Mark Coleman Granted Nevada Fight License
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.16.2009



The Nevada State Athletic Commission granted Mark Coleman a one-fight license today. Mark Coleman attended the meeting in order to address any concerns that the commission may have. As a rule, all fighters over the age of 35 have to contact the commission to discuss any concerns that they may have. NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer had the following to say on the matter…

"We asked him to appear in order to answer some questions. On his own accord, he came in person, so that was very good of him. We mentioned that [Coleman] had quite a layoff before he fought Rua. We mentioned that he kind of ran out of gas in the third round and got stopped. Obviously with his age and his inactivity and the fact that he's lost four of his past six bouts, there was definitely a concern. We asked, 'What's your plan for this fight?' And to his credit, he owned up and said, 'Look, I need to train harder and be in better shape.'"

Coleman stated his plans to the commission today…

"My plan is I'm moving to Las Vegas this weekend and I have offers to train with Frank Mir's group. I have offers to train with Wanderlei Silva's group. I have offer to train with Randy Couture's group. I definitely plan on taking advantage of that, and I plan to be here from this upcoming weekend through the fight. I'll be Las Vegas, and I'll be training constantly here with one or more of those groups."
