"I came out here (to Vegas) so that I could surround myself with professional athletes and people that have the same goals in their careers as I do. It has been excellent out here and it really helps for me to get away from all the distractions that I would have had if I would have stayed in Columbus, Ohio. Since I got here, when I am not at the gym training I come back to my hotel room and close the curtains and just concentrate on this fight....it is almost like my cave. For the last 50 days I go from my hotel room to the gym and then from the gym to my hotel room, I even had to cancel Christmas this year. I will celebrate Christmas with my kids when this fight is over but for right now it's all about taking care of business."-- Mark Coleman talks about training with Shawn Tompkins at the TapOut Training Center in Las Vegas.
