Nate Marquardt Fails Pre-Fight Medicals, Cut From UFC

Wow. Shocking news as reported by Mike Chiappetta of MMA Fighting. Not only has Nate Marquardt failed his pre-fight medical exam, and not only is he out of his fight against Rick Story, he’s been cut from the UFC.

This is deeply disappointing news on so many levels. Marquardt was a quality fighter and an exciting fighter in the UFC, perennially ranked in the top 5 at 185 pounds. I was very much looking forward to what I felt would be a great fight against Rick Story tomorrow. Instead, Story will face Charlie Brenneman and the main event will be Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo.

There’s no word yet about exactly what caused Marquardt to fail his medicals, or why the UFC has decided to cut him from the promotion.
