om the literal standpoint, not so well. From a fi

Also, MMA journalist Todd Martin (Sherdog, L.A. Times blog, Wrestling Observer) returns to the show to talk UFC 172 aftermath. The MMA Report: Featuring Mark Coleman and Todd Martin You can catch The MMA Report every Friday at 11pm et on TSN 1050 in Toronto. -- Coleman, the former Olympic wrestler, talks about coaching alongside BJ Penn on the UFCs hit reality show and what it was like to lend his knowledge and experience to a new generation of fighters, despite a nagging hip injury. "BJ Penn gave me that offer and its just something that I felt I cant refuse," Coleman said. "I was just so excited to do it ... When I walked through the gym doors, I just kind of, like riding a bike it just came back to me and I gave my heart and all to it and it was probably one of the coolest things I ever got to do. Not probably, it was one of the coolest things Ive ever done in my life." And while Coleman had the opportunity to teach the next wave of fighters, he also admits he learned a few things himself. "I still was lucky enough. I did get through and I did still get to whoop their butts in straight wrestling because Im still a pretty good wrestler but I would not want to do an MMA fight with these guys or any of these UFC guys any more. Its amazing how far this sport has come," he said. -- Martin, who had the pleasure of covering UFC 172 live from the Baltimore Arena on April 26, says the event lived up to the hype even in an older venue. "From the literal standpoint, not so well. From a figurative standpoint, tremendously," Martin said. "Literally, the Baltimore Arena is a dump, I mean, its a very very old arena that has bee hosting events for decades and its not in a very good shape at all, but its a great building. The acoustics are great, the live crowd, for whatever reason." And for a guy who has been to shows all across the U.S., Canada and overseas, Martin said the fans in Maryland were a big part of a great show. "This show was a crowd that was really super enthusiastic and very knowledgable about the sport," he said. "It was really quite the crowd and it made for a really exciting event ... (UFC president) Dana White, after the event, seemed really enthusiastic aboutrunning Baltimore in the future."Ryan Switzer Youth Jersey .J. -- Fabian Johnson scored his first international goal and Clint Dempsey doubled the lead after a defensive lapse as the United States beat Turkey 2-1 Sunday in the second of three World Cup warm-up matches for the Americans before they head to Brazil. Ryan Switzer Cowboys Jersey .
