Default Tito Ortiz claims Mark Coleman has pulled out of UFC 106 co-main event

Tito Ortiz claims Mark Coleman has pulled out of UFC 106 co-main event
by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Oct 06, 2009 at 8:45 am ET
Tito Ortiz (15-6-1 MMA, 14-6-1 UFC) said his opponent for UFC 106's co-main-event bout, Mark Coleman (16-9 MMA, 7-4 UFC), has pulled out of the fight.

Ortiz posted the news on Twitter overnight and stated he's awaiting a new opponent for the November event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) could not immediately confirm the change to the Nov. 21 fight card, and as of Tuesday morning, the bout was still listed on UFC.com.

UFC 106 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The night's main card, including the headliner of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin, airs on pay-per-view.

The upcoming fight makes Ortiz's first since May 2008, when he suffered a decision loss to now-light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. At various time over the past year, Ortiz announced he was close to signing deals with promotions ranging from Affliction Entertainment to EliteXC to Strikeforce. However, over the summer, he ultimately made up with UFC president Dana White and inked a new deal to return to the octagon.

Coleman, a UFC hall-of-famer who returned to the organization earlier this year with a loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, had looked to build off his July upset win over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100. The victory was Coleman's first since a February 2006 win over Rua under the PRIDE banner and his first in the UFC since February 1997.

This is really too bad if it is true. I know Coleman is a shell of his former self but I still like watching him fight.

If they need a replacement for this fight I hope it will be Jon Bones Jones.
Anyone else with a suggestion for a replacement?

Bring in some bum so Tito can get an impressive win and get his hype-machine into full gear again. I like when Tito's popular.

I think that would be a good fight, but it's too soon.

What about Wanderlei Silva?

Later.

Wandy would probably take the fight but I don't think he can get cleared this soon to having face surgery.

i like when he is popular also, it helps bring in revenue, but at the same time it allows Tito to get even more full of himself(if that is even possible), and its just glorious seeing him get knocked off his high horse
