#66 From Excommunicated to World Title Shot: Nate “Rock” Quarry on Faith, Fighting and Family

Jim Harshaw interviews UFC Veteran Nate ‘Rock’ Quarry

Today I bring you Nate Quarry. Nate grew up in a sheltered lifestyle and did not participate in organized sports until age 24, when he first became exposed to MMA. After a period of self-discovery, he rejected his Jehovah’s Witness upbringing, which he later characterized as a cult who control their members 24 hours a day. This led to expulsion from the Jehovah’s Witness faith and caused him to become alienated from his family and former friends. He began to associate with others outside of the church and along the way began to train in mixed martial arts fighting. He landed a spot on the Ultimate Fighter tv show and eventually made his way to Team Quest in Oregon. He fought 22 professional fights, winning 18. He’s now an entrepreneur with his hands in multiple businesses.
