Nate Marquardt's run in BAMMA has come to an end before it ever really started.

According to Marquardt's manager Lex McMahon, the UK-based BAMMA has agreed to release Marquardt from his contract following the organization's decision to delay their ninth event from Feb. 11 to March 24. Marquardt was scheduled to fight Yoshiyuki Yoshida in the main event of BAMMA 9 for the organization's welterweight title.

This marks the second time BAMMA has delayed Marquardt's promotional debut, as he was originally scheduled to fight for BAMMA in December.

He never even fought for them, if I was him I'd be heading to Bellator fo' shizzy.

EDIT: might see what pro elite has to offer

I don't think he'll change his stance on having to go through an 8 man field to fight Lombard with Bellator.

DREAM's MW title has been vacant for years since Mousasi moved up to LHW and Gerald Harris just entered the DREAM MW division. Harris is also the Shark Fights MW champ, so that's a possibility in two organizations on HDNet. I don't think Nate is looking for a non-title fight. If Zuffa wanted to bring him back under Strikeforce he could do a #1 contender fight against Robbie Lawler while Rockhold recovers from his broken hand. MFC has a vacant MW title and has Thales Leites and Terry Martin along with being on HDNet. Only other option I can think of is Pro Elite, also on HDNet. They've got Kendall Grove, Joe Riggs, Minowaman, and I'm sure will expand as they have solid financial backing.

Another example of BAMMA messing things up.

Absolute joke of a promotion.
