Former UFC Middleweight title contender and the current Strikeforce Welterweight champion, Nate "The Great" Marquardt, discussed his upcoming showdown with Tarec Saffiedine at next weekend's Strikefroce card, and the future in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Marquardt declared he's ready for the challenge, with sights on a triumphant return to the UFC. Dana White previously declared Marquardt will never fight for the UFC again, after the former King of Pancrase failed a drug test just days before his scheduled main event clash with Rick Story at UFC on Versus 4.
