UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman readmitted to hospital for pneumonia

The unpredictable week continues for UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman.

Friday, the same day he was released from an Ohio hospital, Coleman was readmitted and diagnosed with a case of pneumonia, his daughter Kenzie announced through her father’s social media channels Saturday.

“It’s been a worldwind [sic] of a week,” Kenzie wrote. “Yesterday my dad was released from St. Vincent’s in Toledo where they thought he was stable enough to go home. We were only home for about an hour in Columbus when he started to have numbness in his arms and chest pain. Of course my sister and I rushed him back to the hospital where we found out he has now developed pneumonia.

“Despite all of this he is still his same positive, spunky, spitfire self just as you can imagine from the video above. He wants to again thank you all for the support and love you have shown him and us during this extremely difficult time. I have read him so many of your guys comments and he is so overwhelmed with joy. He is getting rest and I promise to take the best care of him.

“He is the true definition of a fighter and defines strength like no other. Sometimes I even think he’s a super human. He loves you all so much. He always says without his supporters he’s nothing. It feels good to be home with my daddy. Please continue to pray for his healing and health during this recovery process. Hammer house 4 life.”

Coleman, 59, was admitted to the hospital Tuesday for smoke inhalation after he rescued his parents from their burning home in Fremont, Ohio. Coleman was airlifted to a nearby hospital, sedated and intubated. A GoFundMe was launched to assist with his medical bills.

Thursday, a video of Coleman alert and speaking in the hospital was posted on social media. An emotional Coleman called himself “the happiest man in the world” as he embraced his daughters from his hospital bed.

Coleman released a written statement Friday in which he thanked members of the MMA community for their support and voiced optimism about his recovery.
