UFC President Dana White made an appearance during the live broadcast of UFC On Versus 4 to discuss the Nate Marquardt situation and although he was unable to explain exactly what it was that caused Marquardt to fail his medicals and be forced out of the main event, he didn't hold back when voicing his frustrations with the former middleweight title contender who he fired following the incident this weekend:

“I think it's pretty clear to the fans and everyone else that I'm disgusted with Nate Marquardt. He's been cut by the UFC and he won't fight for the UFC again. Bottom line: What Nate Marquardt did is bad enough to be cut by the UFC…. He has no business fighting in the UFC…. This is one of those situations where, because of the laws in Pennsylvania, Nate Marquardt is going to have to man up and tell the world why he didn't pass. And when he does, I think everyone will understand why he was cut from the UFC.”

To drive home the seriousnes of Marquardt's firing, White explained that he understands mistakes get made but you don't cross the boss after being given a second chance in the past:

“I give a lot of guys chances, and a lot of guys make mistakes. Nate Marquardt is one of those guys. So for me to come out and say that Nate Marquardt isn't going to fight in the UFC anymore, it's got to be pretty serious.”
