    UFC on Versus 4: Marquardt vs. Story

    Is anybody interested in watching this card? I am very much looking forward to seeing what Nate the Great is like at welterweight. There are some really cool fighters on this card, which will take place Saturday, June 25, in Pittsburgh. And its free!

    Just so I can say that I registered it in advance - My picks are Nate, by being awesome for whereever the fight goes, Pat Barry due to disqualification from Cheick Kongo's use of repeated testicle kicks to defend takedowns, John Howard for no good reason, and Matt Mitrione due to smiling.

    Preliminary card looks really good too - I like that we have the Joe's Lauzon and Stevenson, Manny Gamburyan vs. Tyson Grifin.

    MAIN CARD

    Nate Marquardt vs. Rick Story
    Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo
    Matt Brown vs. John Howard
    Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft

    PRELIMINARY CARD
    • Manny Gamburyan vs. Tyson Griffin
    • Joe Stevenson vs. Javier Vazquez
    • Joe Lauzon vs. Curt Warburton
    • Rich Attonito vs. Daniel Roberts
    • Charlie Brenneman vs. T.J. Grant
    • Nik Lentz vs. Charles Oliveira
    • Matt Grice vs. Ricardo Lamas
    • Edward Faaloloto vs. Michael Johnson
    Picks, thoughts and how they win it?

    I like the Barry/Kongo fight, even though I dislike both fighters. Hopefully they don't try to out grapple each other!

    It's the 26th, actually.

    Barry via leg kick murder.
    Howard due to having a concrete block for a head.
    Morecraft has been working his standup with my muay thai coach, so I guess I'm pulling for him. He's also cornering for Morecraft so I'm planning on geeking out extra hard if I see him on TV.

    I'm predicting a draw on the main event, although no one will notice due to falling asleep.

    Undercard looks more promising. I want to see Lauzon's fight and Vasquez's fight, also Charles Oliveira.

    Marquardt is out!

    Nate Marquardt Not Medically Cleared, Out of Sunday's UFC on Versus Event
    By Mike Chiappetta
    MMA Writer

    With just over 24 hours to go from the start of UFC on Versus 4, Nate Marquardt has been forced to withdraw from his main event matchup, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to MMA Fighting.

    The bout was to be Marquardt's UFC debut at welterweight after 14 starts and a 10-4 record in the promotion's middleweight division. A source with knowledge of the situation said Marquardt believed he would have made weight, but that he did not receive medical clearance from the Pennsylvania state athletic commission. A specific reason for that was not immediately clear, though a Marquardt representative said they may release more information later.

    News of Marquardt's withdrawal was first reported by MMAJunkie.com.

    As a result of the surprising development, the night's scheduled co-main event, Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo, has been moved into the headliner spot.

    At least Marquardt's scheduled opponent Rick Story will have a new matchup. Charlie Brenneman, who had his own bout canceled earlier this week after his foe scratched, will step in and face Story.

    UFC on Versus 4 takes place at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

    You beat me to posting!

    Dana White makes the cheerful announcement. Marquardt fails medical, no longer in UFC
