UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman has been out of the limelight since his retirement in 2010, but he’s not just sitting around.

He most recently agreed to be the wrestling coach for BJ Penn’s Ultimate Fighter team.

“It’s rejuvenating me,” Coleman said in a recent interview with MMA Junkie. “It saved me a little bit. It brought the energy back, to the point where, like any other fighter, I want to fight again, really. Maybe it’s too late. Who knows? I would never say never. I won’t be stupid enough to get in there with Jon ‘Bones’ Jones or anything like that, or Daniel Cormier. I’m past that time. But I could certainly compete with certain guys out there, and if somebody wants to see it, I can’t say never.”

While Coleman is certainly well past his prime, it’d be a tempting offer to see him take one more fight.

In any case, we’ll see him again on The Ultimate Fighter: Penn vs Edgar next spring.
