“UFC Live: Not Marquardt vs. Story” Weigh-In Results and Video

Breaking sports news video. MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL highlights and more.

While we all wildly speculate what exactly caused Nate Marquardt to be pulled from tonight’s card and ejected from the UFC, we can likely eliminate one potential reason. As seen in the NBC Sports video above, the weight cut looked extremely smooth for Marquardt as he made his first drop down to welterweight. Incidentally, his replacement Charlie Brenneman says that he was notified Friday that he may be stepping in to take on Story.

Perhaps the cutting of Marquardt reminded the rest of tonight’s cast just how fickle a UFC career can be, but something seemed to light a fire under the asses of several fighters at yesterday’s weigh-ins. Weigh-in results and videos of tense staredowns await you after the jump.

@Sarij -

It looked like to me Mitrione said..

"You are fucking Dead... your done"

@Horsepower...

Comon buddy .. there are tons of sources

In regards to the fights on Facebook thus far...

Decent stuff... Sick Kimura from Lauzon...

Worst fight is easily Joe Stevenson... just horrid...

Joe put on the worst performance I have seen in a while... simply terrible.

I was looking forward to this card a little more back when the main event was Marquardt vs Johnson. Oh well, I'm still gonna watch every fight.

This sucks for Marquart but anytime something bad happens to Trevor Whittman I'm all for it. Maybe he will write a poem about it.

Morecraft looked a little scurred.

If story wins convincingly, I'd like to see him in a contenders match with fitch or bj.

Kongo in those lens-less glasses always makes me laugh. Meh, a free card is a free card.
ExpectJesusBro- June 26, 2011 at 9:34 am
Mitrone and Morecraft better show some guts. I wanna see a war outta Mitrone.

Am I the only one who went from "Meh" to "HO-LEE SHIT" about this card after these staredowns?
