UFC 83 - Serra vs. St. Pierre II - 9. Nate Quarry vs. Kalib Starnes

Middleweight bout: Nate Quarry defeated Kalib Starnes via Unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-24). The third score marks the second widest point margin in a three-round fight in UFC history, with the record belonging to a bout between Forrest Petz and Sammy Morgan, which was scored 30-23 Petz by one judge. This was due to the persistant backing off by Starnes, which caused significant boos by the crowd. Quarry stated afterwards that he was frustrated and mocked Starnes with a 'Running Man' gesture in the final round. Two days after the fight, Starnes was cut from the UFC. Starnes has subsequently complained that his contract with the UFC was oppressive and that he was not being properly compensated for his efforts.
