Quick head’s up, Nation. While Nate Marquardt has been mum since a series of unfortunate events over the weekend about what exactly is going on, it’s been announced that he would be addressing his issues today. Well, surprise, surprise: the Barbara Walters of MMA (and we mean that in the most complimentary way possible) landed the interview, with Marquardt scheduled to appear on The MMA Hour today at 1pm.
What We Know (not much):
* Marquardt completed his paperwork and was licensed to fight, but was unable to clear up a medical issue with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission.
* Whatever it is, the Baldfather is pissed. Nate was summarily fired for … whatever it is.
* It’s not the AIDS.
Anything beyond that is just rumor and speculation, although there are a ton of “insiders” willing to share the “scoop”. We would link to some of this speculation, but there aren’t enough words in this post to link to all of them, and they’re all pretty worthless at this point.
We’ll all get the story straight from the man himself here in about an hour, so everyone just be cool. Tune in here at 1, and you’ll know as much about this as we do. Unless you happen to be Nate Marquardt, in which case, dude, call us.
