UFC hall of famer Mark Coleman (15-8), who was to face Brock Lesnar in the main event of UFC 87 in August in Minnesota, expects to return to the UFC in the fall after suffering a knee injury that forced him to withdraw from the featured bout.
Coleman updated MMAJunkie.com on his current status and his plans to return to the UFC by October at the latest.
Here’s a snip from Coleman from the report:
“It’s just going to take some time to heal. The good news is no surgery. I’m rehabbing it hard. I plan on coming back stronger because of this. I’m building the muscles that are going to take care of my knee even better. In six to eight weeks, it will be healthy. But then I’m going to need another six to eight weeks to get in shape.
As far as I know, they’re going to keep me. I’m excited to be with [the UFC], and I can’t wait. It’s been fun just being back with them after so long. The fans have been treating me great, and I’m sorry to disappoint them like this. Only thing I can do for them now is come back. I will be back in there. And I feel I’ll be back in there better than ever.”
