Former UFC middleweight Nate Marquardt recently got fired from the promotion for bungling his testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and failing a drug test given by the New Jersey State Athletic Commission. He has since signed with Britain's BAMMA promotion.
His troubles drew scathing comments from a number of fighters, notably B.J. Penn, Bellator champ Ben Askren and Dan Hardy. He got a chance to fire back and wasn't shy.
Marquardt to Jonathan Shrager on B.J. Penn:
"Cry Baby J" is an idiot to speak the way he does. I don't know how a pothead is going to go and be so judgemental over medication prescribed by a doctor.
I'll assume CryBJ has glaucoma and gets his weed from a "doctor" and I won't pass judgement on him for that.
At least he didn't say "a job as a punching bag" or "a mattress" as I'm sure one may say of him if he were to lose his contract after his recent losses.
Oh, you mean that little goldilocks I saw on twitter? Yeah I didn't even know who he was until he messaged me. Listen. All these guys are trying to build themselves up by talking badly about me and that will probably never change.
