UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman officially announced his retirement on Facebook yesterday after announcing he needed hip replacement surgery (quote via Fighters Only): “Total hip replacement next Monday. Ouch. The Hammer is done fighting. I know [I’ve] been done [anyway but] just looking for some prayers. I thank everyone who will help me get through this. Have to pay to play sometimes. Only regret is I could have worked harder. Love you all, live your dream,” Mark thank you for everything and best of luck in your retirement.

He goes out from the choke and the referee still fails to stop the fight. After being allowed to continue AFTER BEING CHOKED OUT he would "win" the fight by TKO. HT: Fighters Only

Bellator Heavyweight Blagoi Ivanov is in critical condition after being stabbed in a bar fight in his native Bulgaria. Ivanov and his friends were attacked by bat and knife wielding thugs early this morning and Ivanov was stabbed in the armpit, the blade reached Ivanov's heart. Ivanov underwent life-saving surgery at Pirogov Hospital in Sofia earlier today and currently breathing with the aid of a respirator. My thoughts and best wishes are with Blagoi and his family at this most difficult time. HT: Sofia News Agency
