UFC News: Another Injury Setback For Nate Quarry

It looks like UFC fighter Nate “The Rock” Quarry will have to sit on the sidelines again after a freak accident left him with a broken eye socket.

Quarry was at a party in Albany, Oregon, where guests were hitting golf balls into a wooded area. Quarry walked straight into the backswing of a young woman, sending the club directly into his left eye. The force of the blow broke Quarry’s Orbital Floor, a bone that keeps the eye in place. Doctors estimate the original cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter” will not be able to compete until November or December at the earliest. Despite the bad turn of luck, Quarry has been a good sport about the whole incident.

Bad news for Nate Quarry who was on a two fight winning streak in the UFC before the accident.

A broken eye socket is a hard injury to recover from, I don’t see him returning any time in 2008.

UFC 83 Betting Odds

Bet on MMA at Bodog

Georges St-Pierre vs. Matt Serra

Bodog: -500 GSP, +300 Serra
BetUS: -500 GSP, +350 Serra

CT Pick: GSP takes it by TKO. No Bet, theirs a good chance Serra has GSP’s card.

Rich Franklin vs. Travis Lutter

Bodog: -350 Franklin, +250 Lutter
BetUS: -400 Franklin, +300 Lutter

Franklin has better stand up and can defend the takedown. Franklin is a 7:2 favorite to win, I don’t think so, more like 2:1. Lutter is no slouch, if he can get Franklin on the ground, theirs a good chance of an upset.
CT Pick: Franklin by TKO.

Michael Bisping vs. Charles McCarthy

Bodog: -330 Bisping, +260 McCarthy
BetUS: -300 Bisping, +230 McCarthy

Bisping looked shitty in his last two fights, we will have to see how he adjusts to the drop in weight. McCarthy hasn’t fought in a year and a half, I don’t see him taking this fight.
CT Pick: Bisping TKO/KO first round. To many untested factors, No Bet

Nate Quarry vs. Kalib Starnes

Bodog: -295 Quarry, +235 Starnes
BetUS: -280 Quarry, +200 Starnes

Nate Quarry looked bad in his last fight with Pete Sell, he took punishment for two and a half rounds before securing the third round KO. Starns has only lost twice in his career, one to a tough Yushin Okami and the other to Alan Belcher by TKO – Cut (gaping hole). If Starns can avoid the KO and impose his underestimated ground game, the night might be short for Nate Quarry.
CT Pick: My money and my pick go to Starns by Submission.

Mac Danzig vs. Mark Bocek

Bodog: -550 Danzig, +350 Bocek
BetUS: -500 Danzig, +350 Bocek

Bocek’s only loss is to Frankie Edgar by TKO at UFC 73. He has amazing ground skills, but lacks the well roundedness that Mac Danzing has.
CT Pick: Mac Danzig by TKO in the first. No bet, to much risk to little reward.
