(The worst part of dropping to 170? Not being able to eat what you want.)

As promised, Nate Marquardt will be dropping to welterweight for his next fight. The longtime UFC middleweight contender — who’s coming off a decision victory over Dan Miller at UFC 128 — makes his next appearance at UFC on Versus 4 (June 26th, Pittsburgh), where he’ll be facing Anthony “Rumble” Johnson in the main event. Johnson returned to the win column three weeks ago with a unanimous decision over Dan Hardy at UFC Fight Night 24. Note to Nate: If Rumble promises to stand and bang with you, don’t believe him.

The Pittsburgh card will also feature a welterweight meeting between Martin Kampmann and John Howard — the guy who Anthony Johnson called out after his win over Hardy. Kampmann will be trying to right the ship after two very disheartening decision losses to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez. John Howard is also on a two-fight skid, coming off losses to Jake Ellenberger (via TKO) and Thiago Alves (via decision).

Can two fighters forfeit 20% of their purse to each other?

you know me, always trying to stir up shit. I'm trying to be the next Ariel Helwani
yeah, me neither. in fact i thought it would have been a dick move for jones to say he Wouldn't fight Rashad. Just wondering why most people chose to make a big deal out of Jones/Rashad but not this since Nate made the announcement at about the same time that Jones won the belt. Maybe the difference is that GSP isn't whining like a little baby about it.

Nate is all jacked up with muscle, he can easily lose that to be 170. That's not "cutting weight", that's losing muscle.
Hesh to Steel- April 14, 2011 at 10:37 am
LOL at Kampmann retiring. What a stupid thing to say. Marquardt to welter sounds good. If GSP and Anderson both move up a weight class, welterweight and middleweight both become very intriguing landscapes. Unless Fitch just becomes champion and lays on all challengers for decision wins.

Oh crap.

Don't go Georges!

i meant he is huge at 170. he is 6'0 and walks around at 200pds. he doesn't have to cut a lot of weight to make 185 but he is cutting mostly water. his body fat is already extremely low so he is going to have to cut muscle to get to 170. i don't care who you are, cutting 30 pds is a lot and makes for a big welterweight.

PGH needs a PPV...early 2012 would be nice
RwilsonR- April 14, 2011 at 9:35 am
Nate is not "huge" at 185. Nate wasn't even close to Okami' size. Nate is actually very average, and if he had a bit leaner muscle, doesn't have a frame that is much bigger than GSP. He will look very small compared to Anthony Johnson.

Kampmann vs. Doomsday is going to be a war.
Me likey- April 14, 2011 at 9:18 am
nate is huge at 185. he is gonna look like james irvin when he made the cut to middle. that did wonders for his career.

Kampmann should retire????? the only thing Kampann needs is decent strategy..he had Deigo in the palm of his hands and for some reason decided to start banging with him...and anyone can lose to shields...
IMO Shields is a reasonably talented fighter but a brilliant strategist...Kampmann is a very talented fighter and a terrible strategist

Anyone that honestly thinks that GSP cares about Greg Jackson's camp or his fighters is insane. He barely trains there, he is just a name that Greg Jackson uses to get dumb people to come train there. Watch any GSP fight and you will see that he just ignores Jackson

I am the only one who thought that caption was GOLD?

"Aaaaaaaah----CHOOOO!" right into his asshole
intercept440- April 14, 2011 at 8:13 am
nah the caption should have been .."Assmunch???.....dont mind if i do" it fits the picture better hah
RwilsonR- April 14, 2011 at 8:12 am
@ danomite - I never thought what Jones did was a dick move to begin with.
hotsaucemonster- April 14, 2011 at 8:11 am
probably the best caption ive ever read.
bgoldstein- April 14, 2011 at 7:42 am
@ danomite : That's a good point...personally, I think GSP will move to middleweight if he beats Shields (but not fight Anderson for the title right away), so there shouldn't be any drama between GSP and Nate. Unless you're trying to create some. In which case, people like you get slapped.
Payday- April 14, 2011 at 7:32 am
How in the hell is Marquart going to make weight? The guy is a big he planning on severing a limb to make 170?
LOKI- April 14, 2011 at 7:32 am
I have a feeling if it ever happens Rumble vs Doomsday would be a low-rent version of Rashad vs Rampage. Way too much awesome potential for it to actually be awesome.
Uppercut Magnet- April 14, 2011 at 7:14 am
Marquardt's problem isn't his weight; it's his weakass brain.
FeelDaRiddum- April 14, 2011 at 7:14 am
nate vs rumble could be a very interesting catch weight bout
