Rashad Coulter
Unleashes power strikes in China
November 24, 2018
Coulter defeated Yaozong Hu via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night 141 on Saturday in Beijing, China.
Coulter appeared to be in the driver's seat early in this fight. He continually landed power strikes, and Yaozong did not appear to have any answers. As the fight went on, Coulter began to fade due to exhaustion and leg kicks. Yaozong had some success with the clinch, but he continually ate jabs and hooks at distance. In the end, the judges awarded the decision to Coulter, but he will need to improve his cardio going forward.

Undergoes hand procedure
July 1, 2018
Coulter announced via his personal Instagram page that he underwent surgery for a broken hand suffered in his UFC 225 loss to Chris de la Rocha, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Coulter posted the update back on June 15, and said that multiple pins would be placed in his hand for a period of 6-to-8 weeks. That will presumably put a stop to training until close to the fall of 2018. Coulter is 0-3 in the UFC as a heavyweight, but intends to get a fresh start by working on his diet with the intention of dropping to the light heavyweight division (205 pounds).
Remains winless in UFC after loss Saturday
June 9, 2018
Coulter lost to Chris De La Rocha via TKO (punches) at 3:53 of Round 2 at UFC 225 on Saturday in Chicago.
It was one of the sloppier, more entertaining fights that you will ever come across. Coulter did a considerable amount of damage on the feet in Round 1 before his gas tank quickly drained. He was so tired in the later stages of the first frame and into Round 2 that he was unable to do anything of note offensively. Although Coulter hits hard, his conditioning issues have torpedoed any chance he had of a successful UFC career. Now 0-3 with the company with all three losses coming via knockout, Coulter will probably be released.
Was defeated via knockout by vicious flying knee
November 18, 2017
Coulter was defeated by Tai Tuivasa via KO (flying knee) at 4:35 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 121 on Saturday in Australia.
Coulter fought Mark Hunt's main training partner, Tai Tuivasa, and did not fare well. He never really got any offense going, and Tuivasa, who has professional boxing experience, hurt him early. Coulter also had his legs taken out from under him on multiple occasions by "Bam Bam's" leg kicks. Coulter was finished in spectacular fashion when Tuivasa landed a huge flying knee that knocked Coulter out cold.
Shows tons of heart in loss to Chase Sherman
May 13, 2017
Coulter lost to Chase Sherman via KO (elbow) at 3:36 of Round 2 at UFC 211 on Saturday in Dallas.
It's rare that you will see a debuting fighter gain as many new fans as Coulter did in a losing effort. Eaten alive by leg kicks from Sherman throughout the course of the fight, Coulter managed to dig deep to turn this into a fun, exciting scrap. Despite essentially fighting on one leg, Coulter threw numerous bombs and connected with a fair share of them. It's obvious that Coulter doesn't have the technical skills of a top fighter, but he likely earned himself a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus due to his toughness.
To debut against Chase Sherman at UFC 211
May 4, 2017
Coulter will face Chase Sherman in a heavyweight bout at UFC 211 on May 13 in Dallas, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Coulter will enter the cage for the first time with an 8-1 record. All eight of his wins were gained by KO/TKOs, primarily with punches. His only loss was to Derek Perkins (submission-kimura) in 2013. His opponent, Chase Sherman, is also newer to the UFC and has attempted zero takedowns thus far. This fight could end up being won by whoever strikes and lands first.
