Nate MarquardtA middleweight bout between Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares scheduled for the main card of UFC 118 on August 28 has been moved to the main event of UFC Fight Night 22 on September 15, according to MMAjunkie.

The UFN 22 headlining slot opened over the weekend when a detached retina forced rising middleweight Alan Belcher to withdraw from his matchup with fellow contender Demian Maia at the Spike-televised event in Austin, Texas.

It is not yet known whether Maia will remain on the UFC Fight Night 22 fight card or what fight will fill the spot of Marquardt-Palhares on the UFC 118 fight card.
