Marquardt Potential Opponents (BAMMA 7 or 8)
 
Marquardt Potential Opponents (BAMMA 7 or 8)

BAMMA 7 takes place on September 10th and if their booking schedule stays the same BAMMA 8 will probably take place in December or January.

Despite what i initially though it seems from interviews/twitter that Marquardt will almost certainly stay at Welterweight so won't as i previously predicted go up against Phillips or Makhonin (MW).

Potential Welterweight opponents (who have fough on BAMMA cards before):

Paul Daley (England 27-10)
Gunnar Nelson (Iceland 8-0)
War Machine (USA 11-4)
Simeon Thoreson (Norway 15-2)
Eugene Fadiora (England 9-1)

I think Paul Daley is the only obvious big name that has completed previously in BAMMA that would bring as much interest as Marquardt to a fight. The fact that this fight would also be fairly huge would suggest it could headline it's own card so would be more than likely BAMMA 8 (unless BAMMA wanted to gift him a win to build his stock here).

I dont think we will see Nate v Daley straight away. BAMMA wouldnt want to risk Nate losing in his first fight. He will get someone poor who he will easily beat.

With Strikeforce under Zuffa, i can't see them letting Daley fight for BAMMA again.
Nelson, Fadiora and Thoreson are all prospects and i can't see them mathing them with him.
War Machine is out of prison now so i think he is a possibility.

But i think they'll match him up with the winner of the Joey Villasenor (27-8) v Che Mills (13-4) fight in September.

I'm not so sure they have a choice, I think strikeforce contracts say that fighters can fight in different organizations.

Well I agree and disagree here. Sure they will want him to get back on the right foot, because if he loses - their goes his reputation: first caught with higher-than-normal testosterone levels, gets cut from the UFC, loses his first fight outside the UFC.

However it would be a HUGE fight for BAMMA - it would definitely help to put them further on the map. And to be honest - I'd like to see that fight!

Why does everyone say that Nate cheated? As far as I can see testosterone injections when perscribed isn't cheating. He didn't follow some regulations.

If nat stays at Middleweight he could face Tom 'Kong' Watson?

kantowrestler 07-26-2011 04:52 AM

Well that is definately true. But personally I agree he should go for the welterweight title cause BAMMA has no welterweight champion at present. Creating one specifically for Nate would be great.

I agree, but they dont need to play that ace card straight away.

I'd think that a world ranked fighter would be just what BAMMA needs. I was honestly surprised that Bellator didn't sign him. This is something that BAMMA needs to capitalize on.
