Even though he is no longer with the promotion, Spike TV still has 10 hours of programming blocked off to celebrate "The Great" Nate Marquardt today (June 26, 2011) from 1 to 9 p.m. ET.

The former UFC middleweight number one contender Nate Marquardt (31-10-2) was supposed to make his welterweight debut later this evening, taking on surging 170-pound up-and-comer Rick Story in the UFC on Versus 4 main event this Sunday night live from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

However, a funny thing happened on the way to "Steel City," and mere hours before the weigh in, it was revealed that Marquardt was mysteriously scratched from the event because of failed pre-fight medicals. UFC President Dana White then poured it on, announcing that Marquardt "will no longer be with the UFC."

Nonetheless, for now, Marquardt will still monopolize the Spike TV airwaves in a 10-hour marathon featuring his "greatest fights."

Details after the jump.
