UFC President Dana White recently revealed that Nate Marquardt was signed by the ZUFFA-owned Strikeforce, after being released by the UFC in June of 2011, for being denied a license to fight by the Pennsylvania AC after failing to meet the requirements for a TRT exemption.

“I’m done," said White at the time. "I am done with Nate.”

The turn around was orchestrated by MC Hammer, who, along with Lex MacMahon and Nima Safapour, manage Marquardt's career as the principals behind Alchemist Management.

“MC Hammer is involved in his team," said White. "He asked if we could meet; I met him in Los Angeles and he presented the case for Nate, and I said, 'Listen, I love you, but he's gonna have to go somewhere else, fight in other places and come back.' He opted to sit out and not fight anywhere else. He wants to fight in the UFC. So we're going to give him a shot in Strikeforce [and see what happens].”

Below Hammer responds to the news:

Is it wise to have a guy who famously lost all of his money and went $13 milliion into debt as your business manager?

I still think that Nate should be in the UFC but he is going to become the new Nick Diaz in SF so it works out for him either way.
I'm wondering what his pay will look like. Phone Post

For what it's worth, he currently has more money that half the UG - combined. He was broke. He is currently not broke. He's a smart guy, he learned from his mistakes and rebuilt his businesses.

He lost his money to carrying too friends and family. He appears pretty centered these days.

Mix6APlix - " Marquardt's career as the principals behind Alchemist Management."

Am I the only one who sees humor in that sentence?

 He is a manager and all, and has probably forgotten more business knowledge than you'll ever learn.
