Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Nate Marquardt’s Suspension Lifted by PSAC

(“Both my black eye and my low testosterone can be traced back to tainted supplements…”)

Just over two weeks after being suspended by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission, forcing him out of the main event of the UFC Live on Versus 4 card, Nate Marquardt‘s fighting future is no longer uncertain. MMAJunkie reports that PSAC has lifted Marquardt’s suspension after the former UFC middleweight-turned-welterweight met all of the commission’s medical requirements and passed all of his medicals.

Marquardt didn’t offer comment on the good news, but Alchemist Management released the following statement on today’s development:

“Today Nate Marquardt was taken off suspension by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission. This comes less than three weeks after not being medically cleared to fight at UFC on Versus 4 in Pittsburgh and being placed on suspension. Nate is no longer restricted from fighting in any jurisdiction and is looking forward to competing in mixed martial arts again as soon as possible.”

Although they didn’t say whether or not Marquardt was close to coming to terms with any particular promotion, the statement all but quashed any rumors of Nate going to Bellator to face middleweight champ Hector Lombard as he is planning at resuming his career at 170.

“Nate is currently fielding a large number of offers from several MMA promotions and is excited at the wide range of options he has before him. Nate is still one of the best MMA fighters in the world and will resume his career in the sport after deciding which venue is right for him,” the statement continued. “He felt very comfortable with the drop to welterweight and will most likely compete in that weight class. Nate would like to thank his sponsors, family, and friends who supported him through this difficult time.”

According to the story Marquardt fought three times for the UFC — at UFC 128 in New Jersey, UFC 122 in Germany and UFN 22 in Texas — while undergoing testosterone replacement therapy under the supervision of his personal physician. Nevada State Athletic Commission Director Keith Kizer has gone on record to say that Marquardt will not be granted a therapeutic use exemption in Las Vegas as a new rule implemented by the commission recently does not allow athletes who have been found using steroids in the past (like Marquardt was following his UFN 1 win over Ivan Salaverry) to apply. Following the bout, which was actually his UFC debut, Marquardt tested positive for high levels of the steroid Nandralone, but he denied any wrongdoing and blamed the positive results on tainted supplements. As a result, his suspension was reduced by NSAC from six to five months and the outcome of the bout was not changed to a “no-contest.”

It's good to find out that Nate was diagnosed right after his loss to Mr. Hypogonads himself, who I'm pretty sure was diagnosed right after his lost to Filho.

^^ I don't know man, I think the motherfucker is hilarious. When will he reveal himself is the question? Up until recent I was one of the only guys that gave Karma shit. My time is done, I found out that Drano sucks more, and a new character has emerged. Is that mysterio from South Park?

If my grandpa taught me one thing in life it was that small balls=small loads. And if your a cum sipper like all the men in my family are that means that somebody like Nate Mardquart might not be your kind of guy. Its very unsatisfying when your balls deep on a petite nutted man knowing that in the end when he finally blows, you might not even notice it. I'm not sure if semen dehydration is a real thing, but if it is I DEFINITELY have it. If I don't get a good load or two a day I get really sick, and depressed as well. The last thing I promised my grandpa when he was dying is that if I could still breathe, then I would still be suckin cocks. And thats a promise I intend to keep. It's a tradition for the men of our family to be dedicated dick eaters and cum drinkers. Sure we end up with a woman someday, but its only so we can make little baby cocksuckers to carry on our name and tradition. Its not an easy task for us Karma's to actually find a woman that looks enough like a man so we can hopefully cum inside them as many times as possible to make a little male cocksucker, but we are strong and we persevere. This is why I'm proud to say, 'My name is Karma, and I am a semen connoisseur.'

I believe he actually blamed it on supple taint, but somehow it was changed to tainted supplements.
