With his PSAC suspension just lifted, Nate Marquardt now responds to his recent critics in an interview with MMA Junkie: "Some of the fighters that think they're so cool and tough by kicking a guy when he's down – as far as my career, this has been one of the worst times of my life, and these guys are calling me a cheater and talking crap – I've taken note as to who those guys are, and I'm going to come for them. Eventually, I'll get them. I don't care if it's in a superfight or if they want to come down to my gym. I'll beat them up for free." "I think you know who these guys are – Ben Askren, B.J. Penn, Paul Daley, Hector Lombard, cowards talking crap about a guy when he's in such a situation. They're trying to take advantage of the situation. They're bullies. Those are the guys I want to beat up." "I'm not putting the blame on everyone else," Marquardt said. "Everyone had their little piece of fault, but I accept my part in the blame. The fault that I had, I take responsibility for. There are a few little things that if I could go back in time and change them, I wouldn't be in this position. There's things I'm doing now that will prevent this from ever happening again or ever becoming an issue. "The truth is going to come out over time. It has already started to come back. I was under suspension for literally less than three weeks, and my suspension was lifted. I didn't get any fines. This hasn't happened before in this sport, and it shows that I wasn't cheating. I have hope. There are crap-talkers like B.J. Penn who want to kick a guy when he's down, and I would love to fight that guy."

Following his dominant decision victory over veteran, Nick Thompson, at Bellator 40 last night, reigning Bellator welterweight champ, Ben Askren, revealed to Sherdog that he would be moving to Milwaukee to train full-time with Duke Roufus's team, alongside Anthony Pettis, Erik Koch, and Pat Barry: "I will, for the first time in my life, be a full-time professional fighter. I am gonna move to Milwaukee to train under Duke Roufus. If you thought I was okay now, I might get a little bit better now that it’s full-time." Thompson, meanwhile, suggested that he would be retiring from active MMA competition following a 53-fight career: "I’m a fan of Ben Askren and it was an honor for this to be my last fight." -- photo via Keith Mills/Sherdog.com Bellator 40 coverage

Bellator champ Hector Lombard calls out Strikeforce champ Ronaldo Jacare Souza. From Sherdog: "With Hector’s win tonight, I’ve said many times the opportunity for Hector to fight Jacare would be spectacular," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said at the postfight news conference. "I’d love to see it." "Rebney also said he wants to pit his welterweight champion, Ben Askren, against Strikeforce titleholder Nick Diaz. The Bellator boss explained that co-promotional bouts with Strikeforce would likely be three-round non-title fights. " Photo by Dave Mandel via Sherdog.

Ben Askren talks Ryan Thomas - "I’m gonna put him to sleep": "I’m going to do the same thing I did the last time: I’m going to go in there and choke him," said Askren, the 25-yearold former NCAA all-American and U.S. Olympian. "Only this time I’m gonna put him to sleep all the way so he can’t complain about it." "I think he’s been really immature about the whole thing from Day 1," Askren said. "I’ve just tried to go about my own business and prepare for the fight, and he’s been out talking [trash] on the message boards. That’s the kind of thing I might have done when I was 16 years old – not a grown man. It’s all pretty childish if you ask me." Bellator XIX coverage
