UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman is currently hospitalized while recovering from a heart attack that he suffered at the beginning of the month. Coleman posted to his Instagram account earlier this week and revealed that he suffered a heart attack on Tuesday that required his hospitalization.

The retired UFC veteran posted:

“I hadn’t been feeling so well for quite some time something hit pretty hard Tuesday about 7:00 pm chest locked up my arms went numb sounds pretty obvious but I didn’t want to believe . I walked around and laid down for about 6 hours it didn’t get better I texted my daughters I didn’t want to go wasn’t fair to them so I grabbed my keys made it to the hospital for sure there was nothing wrong but yes there was complete blockage of a major artery if I don’t go I’m probably not here today I’m so glad I went I have so many things I want to do . Tomorrow they will try to break through the artery and put a stent in for the first time in a long time I am motivated I am great full and appreciate all your support it wasn’t my time it’s time to live.”

Coleman retired in 2013 with a 16 – 10 record, and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2008 and his fight with Pete Williams at UFC 17 was inducted in 2016. On behalf of 411, our best wishes to Mr. Coleman for a quick and full recovery.
