According to BE Nate was 181 and the medical staff would not allow him to cut anymore weight. Plus there is a rumor of PED use. Thats all I have right now. Just some crazy stuff going on.

Crazy.

I fell really bad for Nate. Getting cut by the UFC is a huge deal now that there is no other big promotion. How long until we see him fight Jeremy Horn?

He brought it on himself though. Still, some sad stuff.

Rumors are anywhere from he has a disease to whizinator to diuretics. All it is now is speculation at this point.

Dana wouldn't outright cut him that way for a disease.

It has to be something more along the lines of using a whizinator or something like that I would think. Although I think it could easily be something that we absolutely don't see coming.

Yeah, definitely not weight cut issue. Sux for Nate. My guess is that it's PED usage.

I don't think its PED use after reading what the executive director from the state commission said I'm leaning more towards an existing injury or infectious disease. The director said they contacted Nate six weeks ago about the issue and gave him as much time as they could so he could show proper documentation that the issue was resolved. He also said everybody including the UFC knew what the situation was so that would expain Dana being upset but it wouldn't explain a firing. The executive director said that once Nate shows that the issue is resolved with proper paper work he could have his suspension lifted in less than 24 hours.

So if this is true, who is the one being unprofessional???

I'll wait until something concrete is confirmed before I add this to the Dana White **** list. To check out the article here is the link http://ht.ly/5qFF5.

some of the things they said suggest that it was something that may not have been an issue is a different state. They implied that numerous people were aware of something but assumed it wouldn't be a problem for the medical....and their assumptions were wrong...not that any of that really narrows it down much but it would rule out PEDs...also, Dana has said others would never fight in UFC before and they have....just because Marquardt is cut doesn't mean he can't be resigned with a statement from Dana about how Marquardt "took the steps necessary to fix the problem and has earned his way back"
