UFC Live 4 -- the promotion's fourth live fight card on the Versus TV cable network -- will air tonight beginning at 9 p.m ET. The undercard will stream on the UFC's Facebook page beginning at 6 p.m. ET. I'll be providing instant analysis and commentary after every fight on both the televised and internet streamed fights.
The much-changed main card is currently headlined by heavyweights Pat Barry vs Cheick Kongo. Nate Marquardt had been scheduled to headline the card, but Pennsylvania Athletic Commission officials refused to medically clear him for the fight. Marquardt's opponent Rick Story will now face Charlie Brenneman in a welterweight bout.
UFC president Dana White announced that Marquardt had been cut by the promotion as a result of failing to get licensed for this card. Marquardt had been expected to make his debut at welterweight after years of fighting as a middleweight for the UFC.
