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.

Following a loss to Charles Oliveira, TUF Season 8 winner Efrain Escudero will take a week off as the promotion reprieves him from the Octagon. What enlightenment will Escudero have during his one week repose?

After his September 15 loss to Charles Oliveira, TUF Season 8 winner Efrain Escudero has been released from UFC. He was originally set to face John Gunderson for the undercard match in last week’s UFC Fight Night Event, but Gunderson was injured and he ended up with Oliveira instead. However, Escudero was submitted in the third round of the lightweight match by the Brazilian fighter, compelling the promotion to discharge him. The released fighter pointed out that he will be taking the week off, and will ponder for his future for the time being.

Escudero’s release in the promotion marks the first time that UFC dispenses a TUF winner.
