One-time UFC middleweight title challenger Nate Marquardt will not be making his welterweight debut this weekend.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that Marquardt is a late scratch from Sunday's UFC on Versus 4 event, and opponent Rick Story (13-3 MMA, 6-1 UFC) will now instead meet Charlie Brenneman (12-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on the evening's main card.

With the late change, a highly-anticipated heavyweight bout between Pat Barry (6-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Cheick Kongo (15-6-2 MMA, 8-4-1 UFC) has now been promoted to main-event status.

The reason for Marquardt's last-minute withdrawal, mere hours before he was scheduled to hit the scales at the event's official weigh-ins, wasn't immediately evident. However, Marquardt's camp did release a statement insisting the setback was temporary and his future still lies at 170 pounds.

This is brutal.

Barry vs. Kongo is going to be a rough main event. Free mma is free mma though.

Damn...I was looking forward to this fight. Wonder if Marquardt was even close to making 170.

Barry vs. Kongo will be action, and this replacement fight really isn't that bad.

Ugh. Brutal. Yeah, I bet Story is a bit disappointed, but I think he's the type of guy that is happy fighting whoever.

Wonder if Nate is regretting listening to GSP about cutting to 170.....Nate cutting to 170 makes about as much sense as James Irvin cutting to 170
