Rick Story Comments on Marquardt

Rick Story spoke to HeavyMMA on Sunday morning about his former scheduled opponent Nate Marquardt being pulled from his fight and then fired from the UFC.

“All I heard was that he didn’t pass his medicals and that I wasn’t going to be fighting him,” Story said. “Then the UFC came to me and said I can fight Brenneman now, so I said let’s do it.”

“Just coming off of a win against Alves and jumping back into the octagon less than 4 weeks later is a bold statement and it doesn’t matter who I’m fighting. I think that proves that I back it up when I say that I’ll fight anyone, anywhere at any time. A lot of fighters say that and never follow through. I’m doing it and that’s what I’m here to prove.”

Story faces Charlie Brenneman tonight on UFC on Versus 4.
