Another fighter was released from UFC, as Dana White announced that Nate Marquardt will be out of the promotion.

After last Saturday’s news that Nate Marquardt was forced out of UFC Live 4’s match before its official weigh-ins, UFC President – Dana White – posted a video on his official Twitter account announcing that the middleweight fighter will be released from the promotion.

“He failed his medicals. Not only is he out of this fight, and out of the main event on Versus, he will no longer be with the UFC.”

Nate Marquardt was slated to face Rick Story at last Sunday’s UFC Live 4. However, he was pulled from the card due to unknown medical issues. That said, his opponent met Charlie Brenneman at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh instead.
