Video: Mark Coleman talks Tito Ortiz, Dan Severn and his daughter's reaction to Fedor loss

Remember all that hubbub about Mark Coleman bringing his daughters into the ring following his 2006 submission loss to Fedor Emelianenko in PRIDE? Turns out it wasn't as bad as it looked, according to lil' Morgan Coleman.

The daughter of ground-and-pound explains to Ron Kruck (transcribed by Brent Brookhouse):

"It was just kind of a moment from being thrown in so fast. Everyone thinks it's his fault, but I would have found out about it sooner or later. So, it's honestly not his fault at all. It was honestly the time of my life because it was so fun out there. So I honestly don't regret that at all. Like it was a sad moment, but it was a great moment in time too. Just knowing he fought one of the best fighters in the world. Fedor Emelianenko? He's crazy, he's what's up."

Coleman hasn't been seen since a lopsided second round submission loss to Randy Couture in the main event of UFC 109: "Relentless" back in early 2010. The 45 year-old wrestling legend looked slow and sluggish compared to his equally-aged counterpart, but the UFC Hall-of-Famer still thinks he might have enough gas left in the tank for a grudge match against Tito Ortiz or Dan Severn.
