Bellator should sign Nate "The Great" Marquardt.

Nate "The Great" Marquardt is currently the #4 ranked Middleweight in the world. He was planning on dropping down to Welterweight. Bellator should sign him as soon as possible. What are your thoughts?

Im guessin if it was just a weight issue, he'll probably fight for Strikeforce..
If its a thing that he has disgraced his name with PED's or somethin, then i dont think Zuffa will want anything to do with him.. so possible he could be in Bellator.. either way im sure he will be in a top MMA org somewhere unless he retires..

Lombard smashes Marquardt. Everybody realizes Hector is actually the beast we all knew he was.

Bellator is the only (financially viable) option for Nate right now. I hope for him that this materializes.

Edit: and if it was in fact PEDs (probably for weight cutting purposes).....how dumb of Marquardt. The UFC now officially dominates the MMA market and you just completely burned your bridge and watched it drown in the river.

Bellator is probably the only real option for Nate, seeing as how Zuffa owns SF and Dana's extremely PO'd at Marquardt. But I'd love to see Marquardt/Lombard or possibly a fight between Marquardt and Bryan Baker.

Yeah, if Bellator can get him and Khalidov, that would make a great title eliminator (or superfight) for Lombard.

I'd really like to see him go to Bellator. But I'd want him to stay at MW.

If his Ufc days are truly over, he should go to Bellator. But if he goes I see him burning the bridge with Zuffa.
