Guerilla journalist Front Row Brian broke the story that Nate Marquardt has signed with Strikeforce.
Glover Teixiera wasn't free agent i was referring to this morning. Nate Marquardt is. Nate's headed to Strikeforce. May/June debut
Marquardt will compete at 170 in Strikeforce
Pretty sure @arielhelwani's news is Glover Teixeira so don't expect the Nate Marquardt to Strikeforce news to drop. It's happening though
Read entire twitter...
Marquardt, who competed for six years as a top middleweight in the UFC, was released by the organization in June of 2011, after he was denied a license to fight by the Pennsylvania AC for failing to meet the requirements for a TRT exemption. He then signed with the UK promotion BAMMA, but was parted ways after his delay was twice delayed.
Marquardt is likely to be a force in the Strikeforce Welterweight division, as it is not the organzations deepest.
