If I were a gingerbread man and I had a Christmas wish, it would be not to be placed in a horizontal line with all of my identical twins and be baked alive until I become nice and crunchy. If you were a gingerbread man in Mark Coleman’s house on December 25th, you had nothing to worry about. In fact, there’s still time to run away before Mark Coleman drops his hammer on the baking tray after he’s done with UFC 109. In an interview with Punch Drunk Gamer, Coleman says that he had to cancel Christmas to focus on fighting Randy Couture.
It has been excellent out here and it really helps for me to get away from all the distractions that I would have had if I would of stayed in Columbus, Ohio. Since I got here, when I am not at the gym training I come back to my hotel room and close the curtains and just concentrate on this fight….it is like my cave. For the last 50 days I go from my hotel room to the gym and then from the gym to my hotel room, I even had to cancel Christmas this year. I will celebrate Christmas with my kids when this fight is over but for right now it’s all about taking care of business.
The antidote is serious people. The offer is still on the table folks. A free MiddleEasy/Jaco Clothing shirt for anyone that can find the UFC 100 post-fight interview of Mark Coleman screaming to a crowd of reporters that he was ‘playing possum’ against Stephan Bonnar. It will probably be the most gangsterish thing you will see today (that’s if you find it). [Source]
