Based on this and this you can add an html table which contains the text of the third column.
A minimal example is:
data = randi(100, 10, 3);
data = reshape(strtrim(cellstr(num2str(data(:)))), size(data));
data(:,3) = cellfun(@(x) ['<html><table border=0 width=400 bgcolor=#FF0000><TR><TD>' x '</TD></TR> </table></html>'], data(:,3), 'UniformOutput', false);
t = uitable('Data', data);
