One Comment to UFC : Nottingham Adds Tom Watson vs. Brad Tavares And John Maguire vs. John Hathaway | UFC News

  1. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Watson BAMMA champ at 185 that Nate “THE CHEAT” was too scared to fight. Bamma had signed Nate THE CHEAT after Bellator didn’t want anything to do with him then Marquardt told BAMMA he would only fight at 170lbs. BAMMA says Nate “THE CHEAT” told them he would fight at MW then changed his mind (TOO SCARED OF WATSON) so they left Marquardt sitting around for a year then released him. I can see him being to scared to fight at MW in UFC but being too scared to fight at same weight he fought his whole career in a small organization like Bamma is just plain chickenshit
