Much discussion in the last two weeks has focused on the fall out from the Nate Marquardt situation, but one aspect that hasn't been mentioned much is what the immediate future holds for Marquardt as a fighter. For now at least, he's blacklisted from the UFC, and presumably Strikeforce as well, leaving him with limited options.

Now, reports are that there may be some interest from Bellator in signing Nate. ESPN Insider (subscription required) has the scoop:

ESPN is hearing from a source inside Bellator, who contends the company actually tendered an offer to Marquardt. In addition, reports indicate Bellator was/is interested in having him compete at middleweight.

That would be an awesome fight, no doubt. Picking up Marquardt would be huge for them.

I'll happy just knowing Bellator has someone like Marquardt on contract.

Nate in Bellator is a good idea, they should put him in the tournament.

I think we all knew Nate would sign with BFC. Lombard v Marquardt would be the biggest fight they have ever put on. Plus Askren wants a piece of Marquardt and now we can see if Askren is up to it

I kinda wanna see someone pull out of the welterweight tournament so nate can be inserted. Can you imagine how sick that tournament would be ? Nate saunders lima hawn hornbuckle and weedman.
