His accomplishments inside the ring using that strategy gave him the name ‘The Godfather of Ground & Pound’.

Coleman paved the way for all the MMA fighters from wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu background to get takedowns on opponents and control them. One of modern fighters who is the pioneer of ground game is the former lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira.
