Nate Marquardt: I feel like I'm the best Welterweight in the worldPosted on July 16, 2012, 10:35 AM by Anton Gurevich
"I really feel like it's my time. Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy. I'm one of the best in the world, and actually, I feel like I'm the best in the world, the best welterweight. I feel like I'm the best in the world, and that's who I expect I'll be fighting for my next fight – is one of the best in the world." - mmajunkie.com
Nate "The Great" Marquardt has improved to 32-10-1 in his Mixed Martial Arts career with a victory over Tyrone Woodley at last Saturday's Strikeforce card in Portland, Oregon. Marquardt can now call himself a champion for the first time since his reign as "The King of Pancrase" from more than seven years ago.
In his first title defense, Marquardt is expected to meet Jason "KC Bandit" High, or Kazuo Misaki. Both fighters are currently on winning streaks in a rather shallow Strikeforce welterweight division. Marquardt fought Misaki twice in Japan, winning on both occasions.
