Nate Marquardt wasnt always so sporting.

Stumbled across this just now after watching Roger Gracie highlights. I was surprised that Id never heard of this before. Its a far cry from the great sportsmanship we have seen from Nate of recent times.

Yeah, shitty move on Nate's part, no doubt.

It's worth noting, however, that Ricardo held the choke after he tapped, which is what prompted the punch.

Renzo's not exactly blameless here, either. He could have seriously hurt Nate with that kick.

Yeah he held that choke a little extra but still. I don't judge Nate by that you can tell it's just one of those emotion filled moments for both sides.

Is it possible Nate thought the fight was still going? If not, he must have felt he should have been released earlier.

Either way, he was apologetic straight away, seems like normal Nate tbh.

Looks like you hit the nail on the head

Almeida incident
On November 30, 2003, Marquardt was involved in a brief altercation with middleweight opponent Ricardo Almeida in a Pancrase title fight. Marquardt, who was caught in a guillotine choke, tapped out; (Some believe that the referee mistook a repositioning of Marquardt's hand to be a tap. Thus causing Marquardt to believe the fight had not been ended.) The referee, however, was unable to immediately separate the fighters, and the choke remained applied around Marquardt's neck. After he was freed, Marquardt threw a strike at Almeida's face, prompting both corners to storm into the ring – including Renzo Gracie. Renzo was cornering Almeida, and once in the ring he kicked Marquardt in the face.[7] The confrontation eventually came to an end, and Marquardt approached Almeida after the bout to congratulate him. After Almeida vacated his title in July 2004, Marquardt proceeded to regain the championship in a victory over Kazuo Misaki at Pancrase: Brave 10.

This doesn't reflect badly on Marquardt, it reflects badly on Gracie, he obviously holds the choke after he knows the guy tapped and the ref is telling him to let it go.

Nate's problem is he stopped after one punch, he should have kept going, there is no excuse for that holding the choke BS. Royce gracie used to do it all the time too, and it was a mystery to me why both refs and opponents let him get away with it, he deserved the same kind of sucker punch on many occasions.

Renzo's also been known to step on the head/neck of his opponent after he defeats them. He was just looking out for his student, but Renzo can be nasty.

Its not as if Nates head came free after Ricardo had let go. He didnt let go. Nates head popped out like it would if there was still alot of pressure. I'm guessing Nate still thought the fight was going on.

The Gracies are all a bunch of nasty twats who I like very much. We all know they only invented the UFC so they could show everybody how much BJJ rocked. 1000% selfish reasons and nothing to do with love of a sport at all.

Yea, Royce started doing it after a fight with Shamrock. Cant remember the exact event. Basically, Royce made Shamrock tap. It was a very light tap but we all saw it. The moment the ref stopped it and Royce let go, Shamrock was still pent up and acting like he wanted to carry on. They had a little argument about it. In all his fights after that, Royce always held the choke after the ref stopped the fight. Says it all about the Gracies. Nasty, cold vengeful bunch. I love them.
