OUCH!: Nate Marquardt tweets images of his destroyed thigh


Tarec Saffeidine overcame the odds by defeating Nate Marquardt via Unanimous Decision at last night’s Strikeforce Finale event in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The key behind Saffeidine’s dominance was the ability to deliver super-sharp leg strikes that absolutely destroyed Marquardt’s left thigh.

The Great tweeted the results of Saffeidine’s work, and all we can say is… OUCH!

  • Damn I know how Nate managed to cut to 170… his looks are a lot smaller than they used to be. His hand is honestly wider than his calf!

    and holy crap his leg was murdered, last time I saw a leg this badass Faber's, only difference was these leg kicks had an extra 30 pounds behind them

    • His hand looks freakishly big compared to his leg lol

      • The hand is closer to the camera…This comes to mind:


        • gm1

          Nate was overated….

          He said now that he was at 170 he felt better, faster, healthier…

          Nate is a wrestler and he couldnt even take Safferdine down…

          Whatever Nate….heal up and apply at bellator…

    • One of the things I've always marveled about GSP and IMO, is a huge part of the man's success, is The Champ's thighs. GSP's thighs are enormous for his frame. They are the engine behind his 80% (+) success rate in take-downs. They have to be the thickest thighs in the 170 division and would be one of the biggest sets @ 185. I don't know why more athletes don't focus on thigh development.

    • It's the camera angle.

    • a little Bengay should have that cleared up in 12 hours

  • There have been alot of guys who have had success deliverying leg kicks. Forrest against Rampage, Aldo vs Faber, Jardine vs Chuck and heavyweight pat barry.


  • I guess thats what happens when you dont block or check or change stances or really do anything but let a guy kick you in the same spot for 5 rounds…

  • I hope Dana White keeps to his word and sends his ass to Bellator hahahahahahahaaha.

  • My leg has looked much, much worse, check the pictures out from my Facebook, Torn glute.


  • that looks painfull

  • I wish I could find a shirt in that color.

  • Walk it off….pussy

  • Looks like my wife's leg after I'm done beating it from the back 😉
