Jake Ellenberger squared off against former Strikeforce champion Nate Marquardt at UFC 158 last night, and delivered a brutal knockout. ‘The Juggernaut’ put Marquardt’s lights out in the very first round with a vicious combo followed by some ground and pound. In a night of fights to really decide the future of the welterweight division, Ellenberger was a standout with his knockout of the night victory. This was a big step for Ellenberger facing a former UFC title contender and ex Strikeforce welterweight boss. As for Marquardt, two straight losses will be a real dent to his confidence, and I hope he can bounce back from this most recent loss.
