UFC legend Mark Coleman surprised a lot of people when he came out in support of Liver King a few months ago. Back in October 2022, Coleman thanked Liver King in an Instagram post for helping him make it to Abu Dhabi for UFC 280. The UFC’s first-ever heavyweight champion also gave a shout-out to Liver King’s line of supplements that he claimed helped UFC middleweight AJ Dobson in preparation for UFC 280.
