Nate Marquardt Expected to Return in December as a Part of BAMMA 8

Nate Marquardt‘s long awaited return to action is just a few months away.

The former UFC middleweight contender will look to make his return to action in December at BAMMA 8, and he will still be making his welterweight debut.

Liam Fisher, head of BAMMA business development, confirmed the news when speaking to MMAWeekly Radio on Friday.

“We’re looking for Nate to debut in December at the next show,” Fisher revealed. “Nate’s coming over for BAMMA 7 and he’s going to be spending a week with us, we’re doing some press over in the UK and bits of filming here and there, and we’re sitting down with Nate to talk opponents.”

Fisher stated that Marquardt is anxious to get back in action, but has made it clear that his home is at 170lbs. BAMMA has been looking to build that division with Paul Daley coming back to England next weekend for BAMMA 7, as well as adding other talent set to be signed in the coming weeks.

“It’s a division we don’t have a title holder at the moment, it’s definitely something that we’re building. Nate’s a part of that, he wants to fight at welter, he doesn’t want to fight at middleweight. We’re discussing opponents right at the moment,” Fisher said.

While the BAMMA executive was holding his cards close to his vest when talking opponents, Fisher did say that they have a few ideas in mind and would hopefully be able to announce something soon.

“We’ve got a few ideas, we’ve got a few signings in the works at the moment and like I said we’re trying to build our welterweight division,” said Fisher.

Marquardt has been out of action since March when he fought at UFC 128 in New Jersey. The embattled fighter was then thrown into controversy after a elevated testosterone test took him out of his fight at UFC on Versus 4 in June.

The end result was Marquardt’s release from the UFC, but he’s looking forward to getting his career back on track and that starts with BAMMA 8.

The date and venue for BAMMA 8 have not been released as of yet, but Fisher promised an announcement soon for that as well as more fights for the December card.

“We’ll be announcing the specific date and venue very early next week,” Fisher commented. “It’s going to be in December.”

So who up first for Nate? The obvious choice is Paul Daley but BAMMA may want to build up to that fight.

Gunnar Nelson is an absolute beast so him vs Nate would be a sick fight IMO.

Gunnar Nelson is a possibility but it'd be a real shame to make that fight right away because it'd end fast and Nelson would lose his stock before he has any.
