During tonight's broadcast of UFC on Versus, Nate Marquardt's camp issues a statement regarding Marquardt's failed medicals that forced him out of tonight's main event which then led to UFC President Dana White canning Marquardt and saying he will never fight for the UFC again.
Marquardt didn't address the reason behind the failed tests but does say he will speak more on the subject Tuesday:
“Nate Marquardt was not medically cleared by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission at UFC on Versus 4. Nate was looking forward to making his welterweight debut and is disappointed by this unfortunate turn of events. Nate wants to apologize to his family, friends, fans and the UFC. This outcome was certainly not what he wanted. At this time, Nate wants to be with those closest to him so he can evaluate his situation over the coming days.”Marquardt's manager, Lex McMahon, indicated that his fighter “will personally be addressing all issues this Tuesday.”
What do you think the reason was for the failed tests?
