Nate Marquardt: Sees Himself Better Off in Middleweight Division
If there’s any fighter known for being a perfectionist, it’s Nate Marquardt. Even though the MMA fans did appreciate his talent and skills versus Tyron Woodley last July 14, Marquardt still sees the need for improvement on his fighting skills. “Some of my stuff looked sloppy, you know, so there’s always room for improvement,” Marquardt declared during his interview. In all his achievements, Marquardt admits he needs to practice more. Last year was bit different for him when he got fired by the UFC after being suspended by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission. Marquardt then joined British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) and left before engaging on his first match. Hence, winning against Woodley was just in time to make for his streak in MMA.

Marquardt decided to let Woodley do his thing until he becomes wasted. From there, the fight was controlled by Marquardt until Woodley held on the fourth round. The fight ended with Marquardt finishing it with 2-elbow strike. As Marquardt won the fight against Woodley, this added a good debut on his career (32-10-2).
Marquardt’s High Praises for Woodley
