HAMMER TIME | Dana White Explains How MC Hammer Helped Marquardt Get Back With ZUFFA

“Right when he was first exiled, or kicked out of the UFC, whatever you want to call it, cut from the UFC, MC Hammer is in his team. He called me up and asked me if we could meet in [Los Angeles], so I met him there, we had dinner. He was lobbying to get Marquardt back in and I said, ‘Ya know, I love you man, but he’s gotta get out there and fight in other shows.’ He opted to not fight in any other shows. He wanted to sit out and he wanted to be back in the UFC. So we talked, we’re putting him back in Strikeforce and we’ll see what happens. I like Nate Marquardt, he’s a really good guy. But professionally, he needs to get his shit together. He needs to come into Strikeforce and he needs to make weight, he needs to pass all the tests and do all the other shit, so we’ll see how it goes.”

Famous 90’s rapper, MC Hammer has taken to a new profession.

It was announced earlier last year that the famous recording artist would take to managing MMA Fighters and his group is handling many in the sport, including Nate Marquardt.

We announced yesterday that Marquardt has been given a second chance with the ZUFFA brand and has been signed to Strikeforce where he will likely compete for the vacant welterweight title.

Dana White revealed in an interview with that “Hammer” did in fact have a meeting with him and the subject at hand was getting previously ejected Nate Marquardt back with the company.

Through their negotiations Marquardt will now debut for ZUFFA promotion Strikeforce later this year.

  2. Jb says:

    Nate is not that great. But if Diaz/shields shine in strikeforce he should fit rite in

    • who you know says:

      It will be interesting to see if the PROPER use of his TRT, will effect his performance. I don’t understand how someone can look like they belong on the cover of muscle mag, claim they wouldn’t be able to get out of bed, much less train without all those doses. Something seems suspect.

    Yup, PEDS just don’t get you fired like they used to…oh wait, they never did. Well shit, who needs to fight fair when you can juice up and not only keep your job, but get another title shot a few months later. Great way to keep the sport alive. What better way to say this sport isn’t just a bunch of retarded meat heads beating the shit out of each other. Now we dry hump AND juice up. Much love Dana White, go fuck yourself.
