Nate Marquardt (MMA 31-10-2 UFC 10-4) Has been cut from the UFC:

It's just going from bad to worse for Nate, not only did he lose his Main Event spot at UFC Live on Versus but he has been cut from the UFC in the space of 40 minutes as Dana says in the video link below: LINK

What's next for Nate, I don't know, but this is big big news. Greg Jackson's Camp Claim that they: Instist the setback is temporary and his future still lies at 170 pounds. With regards to him being taken off the main event.

However with the cut from the UFC it's a huge shake up for Nate's career and both the Middleweight and Welterweight Divisions.

Should have stayed at 185.

Wonder if Spike is still going to carry the Nate marathon tomorrow?

Unreal. Marquardt sure pissed Dana off good.

There's more to this for sure. He failed his medicals and now he's cut? I can't wait to hear more about this. That's pretty crazy, Marquardt is a big name.

"So the forums are saying he weighed in at 182 :s - they even had an ultimate Nate tribute show staged to air before the main event as well....no wonder Dana was so pissed...not sure If that's the only reason he was cut though."

It would make a lot of sense if he was weighing that high (ignoring the Ultimate Nate as I'd like to think us Playgrounders are die hard fans ) But it is a thought it would annoy spike

Ya, if he weighed in at 182 then this cut definately makes sense. That is ridiculous.

But if it was only by a couple of pounds Im surprised by this cut. Alves and others have come in overweight for main events and not been cut.

He never weighed in though. To me, this sounds like a failed pre-fight drug test or something to that effect. They don't weigh you during your pre-fight medicals, do they?

His camp might have let Dana know he wasn't gonna make it. Could be a pre-fight drug screen as well, but usually those don't come out until after the fight.



Getting cut with prejudice by zuffa in 2011 is not good for the ole' career.

edit: nvm


“He failed his medicals,” said White. “Not only is he out of this fight, and out of the main event on Versus, he will no longer be with the UFC.”

This is a potential career-ender. Sure, Nate would be able to make a living in smaller promotions, and Dana's definitely made some hasty decisions in the past.

Really looking forward to seeing more details about this because, uh, goddamn.

Marquardt is a solid gate keeper. It is a shame he has been let go. I am sure the insights of this matter will unfold shortly but before it does, let us not be too judgmental.

As more and more is coming out about this, I'm really leaning towards it being something much more than weight. Mike Chiappetta is dropping some of these bombs on Twitter. I'll post them from earliest to latest.





MikeChiappetta Mike Chiappetta MMA:
It is my understanding this was a weight thing. Nate's team felt he would make it, PA officials didn't. Waiting for more clarification.




MikeChiappetta Mike Chiappetta MMA:
I don't know if there's anything beyond that in terms of why Dana cut Nate. Details are slow to leak out so far.




MikeChiappetta Mike Chiappetta MMA:
Will pass along any other details if/when I get them. As others mentioned it's very unlikely he was cut just for weight issues. #NateGate




MikeChiappetta Mike Chiappetta MMA:
My buddy @ekc was filming Nate's weight cut and said it was going "absurdly easy." More evidence it's something else. #NateGate

think there's any chance Dana is just jumping the gun & changes his mind?

Here's the deal, I just got a job as a sports columnist for a website that shall remain nameless due to site rules, I cover USC and UFC for them. Everything I am finding out is indicating that it's something more than weight issues, but here's what I believe.

If it's not because of something bigger than weight:

-Dana is pissed because of everything that was surrounding Nate with this fight, the Spike marathon, etc..and Nate had plenty of time to make this cut, if the RUMOR is true that he was tipping 182, I can understand this cut. That's inexcusable.



If it's something more than weight.

-duh, it's a no brainer, with the hype and circumstances surrounding this fight, if Nate did something more harmful to his career, the rapid-fire makes sense.
