This is a very intriguing match up though it is surprising that Nate was the welterweight who got the fight. Not that Nate isn’t a top contender but he is coming of a loss and usually the UFC likes to match fighters up who had the same outcome in their last fight. Marquardt lost his Strikeforce title in a decision to Tarec Saffiedine in the final Strikeforce event. Marquartd’s leg got beat up bad in that fight. Lucky for him Jake Ellengberger isn’t known for his kicks.
