Sell-Quarry Promoted To Main Card

Postby Sub-Zero » Tue Sep 04, 2007 3:48 pm

A fight between former middleweight contender Nate Quarry (8-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and UFC veteran Pete Sell (7-3 MMA, 1-3 UFC) has been promoted from the UFC Fight Night 11 undercard and will now be on the televised portion of the Spike TV event.

UFCjunkie.com (www.ufcjunkie.com) today learned of the news from Spike TV spokesperson David Schwarz.

This morning, UFCjunkie.com confirmed that Mike Swick had been scratched from his UFC Fight Night 11 bout with Jonathan Goulet and that Dustin Hazelett will fill in as his replacement. The Swick-Goulet fight was supposed to be televised during the Sept. 19 event.

However, according to Schwarz, once Swick pulled out of the fight, Spike TV and UFC officials mutually agreed to air the Quarry-Sell fight instead.

The fight is actually a rematch from the first UFC Fight Night, where Quarry scored a quick, 42-second TKO of Sell.

Quarry, a standout from “The Ultimate Fighter 1,” was eventually forced out of competition on the show because of an ankle injury. He’s been recovering from back surgery and eyeing a comeback to the UFC, where after three dominating victories, he eventually lost to then-champ Rich Franklin at UFC 56.

Sell, who appeared on a “comeback” fourth season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” has three losses in the UFC • to Quarry, Scott Smith and Thales Leites • but is best remembered for his UFC 51 submission victory over Phil Baroni.

The news is unfortunate for Hazelett, who despite three fights in the UFC, has never appeared on an official broadcast. The Team Jorge Gurgel fighter and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt owns a career 9-3 record, including a 2-1 mark in the UFC.

The full UFC Fight Night 11 card now includes:
