Nate Marquardt's BAMMA debut will wait for now.

Once targeted to meet Paul Daley (29-11-2) at the upcoming BAMMA 8 event, Marquardt (31-10-2), a onetime UFC middleweight title challenger, will now headline BAMMA 9 opposite UFC vet Yoshiyuki Yoshida (13-6).

Promotion officials today announced that BAMMA 9 is set for Feb. 11 at LG Arena in Birmingham, England, which is the site of this weekend's UFC 138 event.

"Although we had planned for Nate's first fight to be in December, we believe it is worth waiting a further eight weeks for such a great matchup," BAMMA CEO David Green stated.

Marquardt's debut marks his first outing since his release from the UFC, which came after he was not medically cleared by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission in advance of his UFC on Versus 4 headliner with Rick Story. It was later revealed that Marquardt's use of prescribed testosterone caused him to come in above the commission's acceptable levels of the hormone, which nixed his participation in the event. UFC president Dana White immediately released him from his contract.

pretty solid opponent for BAMMA to get for him, but Nate shouldn't have any trouble

Marquardt is going to hurt him badly. It's a solid match up for them to make for him but a Marquardt vs. Daley fight would do very well for them. Hopefully they can get that fight back on track in 2012.
