Wow, what could come up in a health screening that would get you summarily released from the UFC?  That's crazy.

WOW, cant imagine how marquardt is feeling. Going from main event status to out of the UFC all in one feel swoop. I definitely need to know how this happened.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is just Dana overreacting to Nate not making weight and he later retracts this statement.

you might be very right, x5452. I dont want it to sound like im pointing fingers or anything but could it be due to illegal substances? not making weight? what do you guys think? im going with the weight cut.

Dana must be pissed at him for not making weight (or whatever the reason for pulling out) and letting him down ... he doesn't seem happy in that short clip, i think he posted it and to make a point of it and make it official, before nate has a chance to give his side of what happened.

oh well we'll find out soon enough, as they say the show must go on lol

hopefully so X5452

i definitly think it's a weight issue, i think he tried cut too much too late ... not entirely nates fault imo as his coaches/team should of been on top of it.

*if he was just overweight then where its not a title match the fight should of still happened, maybe a medical issue as a result of a late weight cut?, pushing his body too far, and Dana's pissed that he 'acted unprofessionally' leaving it so late

I'm almost certain it's him not making weight. Dana white has said it "disgusts" him when people can't make the cut. Marquardt probably wasn't even close to the mark and said that he took something that wouldn't allow him to pass his medical.

However, this is all speculation. I feel bad for Marquardt (though, it's probably his own fault), but I feel even worse for the people who bought tickets for this. First Kampmann, than Rumble, now Marquardt, and then they get Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo for the main event.

"“He was not medically cleared. It is nothing serious,” said Kelly Crigger, a representative of Marquardt’s management team at Alchemist Mixed Martial Arts." 
I'm thinking it's weight issue, if the above is true.

He probably cut way too much weigh too quick and is too dehydrated and they won't let him cut anymore. However, Dave Meltzer has a different idea:

"The unanswered questions keep going. Dana White just announced that Nate Marquardt was no longer with the UFC. It was a short message where White said that Marquardt had failed his medicals and is not only off the show, but out of the UFC, without giving any explanation.

Nobody has confirmed the medical issue that forced Marquardt out of the fight, but one person with knowledge of the situation told us it was not an issue related to cutting weight. Marquardt being fired would seen to indicate medicals revealed something that would lead to severe disciplinary action."

It's probably a combination of things. I'm sure will find out by the end of the day.

mmmm, i'll wait to find out the truth like everyone else, but from the sound of it i'm guessing it's something bigger than just a weight cut.  missing weight is a lot more significant when it's a title fight, when it's a big event, and when a guy has a history of missing weight or other problems with management.  none of those are true with nate marquardt, so i'm *speculating* that there was something in his system they didn't like -- maybe a diuretic or something of that nature.

if it was just Nate being overweight then the fight could still of happened, he'd of just lost a percentage of his fight purse.

i think Nate almost made weight or even made it, but due to leaving it too late to cut, was not medically cleared to fight.

which inturn extemely pissed Dana off, who like OldNick said, has often voiced his opinion on fighters not making weight.

I think there was something in his system that was going to get him suspended from the ufc so Dana just cut him maybe?
