Nate Marquardt is heading to BAMMA 8 this December, following his release from UFC.

Following his UFC release last June, Nate Marquardt will make a debut on December 10 for BAMMA 8. However, no opponent has been named by the organization yet.

With BAMMA 8 yet to take place in Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England, BAMMA 7 will kick off this Saturday. And chances are high that if Paul Daley beats Jordan Radev, the former will welcome Nate Marquardt in the cage.

BAMMA’s head of talent, Jude Samuel, said in an official statement:

“This is going to be a very explosive fight,” stated Jude Samuel, BAMMA’s head of talent, in an official release. “Leo is a world-class BJJ fighter, but when he fought Jason Ball, he actually out-boxed a boxer!
