“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 â€œThe Ultimate Fighterâ€ will not be able to compete until November or December at the earliest.”
Unfortunately, being sidelined due to injury is a tale Nate Quarry knows all too well. Quarry, 36, sat out for nearly two years following his loss to Rich Franklin at UFC 56, while undergoing and recuperating from various surgeries. Quarry was also forced out of competition from the first season of The Ultimate Fighter due to an ankle injury which required significant healing time.
Though this latest mishap is surely aggravating for “The Rock”, the report states that Quarry is in relatively high spirits and has “been a good sport about the whole incident”. The UFC is also rumored to hold a pay-per-view event in Quarry’s native Oregon this November, but we shall see if that is too soon for the recovering UFC veteran to return to action.
