'Our hero': UFC legend Mark Coleman recovering after rescuing both parents from 'horrible' house fire

UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman called himself "the happiest man in the world" earlier this week after he managed to rescue both of his parents from a "horrible" fire that destroyed their home and claimed the life of their beloved dog, Hammer.

In the wee hours of the morning, Coleman and his parents were sleeping at home in Fremont, Ohio, when Coleman suddenly awoke, reportedly because of Hammer's incessant barking. Coleman immediately knew something was desperately wrong.

"I got out of my room and went to the door," he later recalled through tears, "and it was already horrible. I couldn't breathe. I almost had to go outside."

A fire was raging in the house, endangering everyone inside. Seemingly on instinct, Coleman raced in and picked up his parents, one by one, and carried them outside to safety.

"I can't believe my parents are alive!" he said from his hospital bed, still weeping with joy and hugging his young daughters, Kenzie and Morgan.

According to an Instagram post from Morgan, Coleman had to be "life-flighted to the hospital" where he then "battl[ed] for his life." Thankfully, he is recovering and breathing on his own, a Facebook video shows. "God is good. Miracles do happen," read a message accompanying the post.

Though the family is celebrating that Coleman and his parents are alive, they are also grieving the loss of Hammer, who perished in the fire. "I couldn't find Hammer!" Coleman wept.

"We will miss our sweet hammer so deeply," Morgan added in her post.

Coleman, who still maintains his muscular physique, has been an athlete his entire adult life. He won a national championship in wrestling at Ohio State in 1988 and then went on to compete in the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.

Afterward, he spent some time competing as an amateur MMA fighter before joining UFC. He won his first heavyweight title in 1997 and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2008.

"Our father has always been our hero and means the world to us," Morgan said. "He is and always will be a fighter."

"The strongest [and] bravest man I know."

'F*** you, b***h': Ukrainian UFC fighter has pointed message for Vladimir Putin and his Russian regime for invading her country

A Ukrainian UFC fighter who has family facing down tanks and missiles amid Russia's invasion of her home country gave Vladimir Putin a pointed piece of her mind in an interview with TMZ Sports.

"F*** you, bitch," Maryna Moroz said when asked what she'd like to say to the Russian president and his regime. "I love my country. Don't touch Ukraine."

What are the details?

Moroz, 30, is scheduled to fight Mariya Agapova — an MMA fighter from Kazakhstan — Saturday night at UFC 272, TMZ Sports said.

While the event is to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, understandably much of Moroz's heart and mind is focused on what's happening in her home country.

"It's hard time for Ukraine," she said, adding, "I want to support my country, my president, whole army in Ukraine, and I want to say we don't want war. ... I worry about my family right now in Ukraine."

Moroz was born in Vilnohirsk, Ukraine, in September 1991, which TMZ Sports said is about the same time Ukraine gained its independence amid the collapse of the Soviet Union.

And with Ukraine's autonomy now threatened, Moroz is deeply concerned.

"Many people die right now," she said, lamenting the increasingly "dangerous" situation in Ukraine.

In fact, she said her father has been making homemade grenades for protection and to fight back against advancing Russian forces.

Moroz added to TMZ Sports that she tries to call home "every couple of hours" but that it's difficult to stay in touch.

What this fight means to her

Despite the hardships in Ukraine, Moroz also has a job to do Saturday — and that's to beat Agapova.

In a way, she knows she'll be fighting for her country.

"I want to show Ukraine girl strong" and that we "don't stand back." She added that she'll be "fighting" to "show that Ukraine people [are] strong, and my flag will be in [the] Octagon."

WATCH: UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal tells Crowder that Kamaru Usman 'hits like a B***H'

Steven Crowder interviewed UFC fighter and outspoken Trump supporter Jorge Masvidal about predictions for Saturday's #UFC 261 fight against Kamaru Usman.

In the first clip, Crowder asked Masvidal what made him so confident he could beat Usman in their first fight? Masvidal said he [Usman] "hits like a b***h" and predicted the fight would "start violently and end violently."

In the second clip, Crowder asked Masvidal about the skillset of former Disney Channel actor turned professional boxer Jake Paul. Crowder was surprised to hear what Masvidal had to say about Paul because Masvidal had trained Paul in the past.

"What is your impression of Jake Paul ... how good would you say his skillset actually is," Crowder asked.

Masvidal said that Paul "is a good athlete and has some coordination, so given his background at Disney, he is doing pretty well."

Masvidal later added that Paul should stay away from "real fighters" because he isn't "mean" like the seasoned MMA fighters who make a living off fighting.

Crowder expounded on Masvidal's "mean" comment with a personal story from when he competed in Jujutsu.

"When people say Jorge Masvidal is mean, I say no, he has a killer instinct ... there's a big difference between being mean and having a killer instinct," Crowder said. "I don't have a killer instinct unless someone has personally wronged me. One time, I was in a Jujutsu tournament and I had a guy in tough crossface in side control. I liked the guy a lot, and was winning but when I heard him groan I said 'I'm sorry' and let him go, and he put me back in guard."

"It was at that point I realized I didn't have the heart for fighting ... that is not mean ... but you [Masvidal] would have probably broken his jaw," Crowder said.

Masvidal agreed adding that he would have "for a fact secured a victory."
