  1. Weird. I am guessing either Marquardt failed a pre-fight test or he came in too heavy and doctors stopped him from cutting weight.

    Need more information.

    Appaently he came in 12lbs over and the doc said he can’t safely cut anymore, but I can’t see Dana cutting him for that….. Alves missed weight what, 3 times?

    Also hearing he had some kind of testosterone replacement doctor scenario that the commission rejected.

    Both are decent sources. Obviously at least one is wrong.

  19. “Nate (The Great) Marquardt says he failed his medical for a weekend UFC fight because of high testosterone levels.

    But the veteran mixed martial arts fighter says he was under doctor’s treatment for low testosterone and that he got off the medication in question when his testosterone numbers looked high going into Sunday’s main event in Pittsburgh.”
