Marquardt: God wanted me to return to middleweight

 

Nate Marquardt will headline this Saturday's UFC Fight Night 43 coming off three straight losses in the welterweight division. Marquardt will fight James Te Huna at middleweight, something he believes was God's will:

“I just feel like that’s what God wanted me to do, was to move back up to middleweight,” Marquardt told MMAjunkie. “I’d never lost two fights in a row before, so it was actually more after the second one that I was actually kind of questioning myself.

“When I lost the third fight, I was disappointed. But at the same time, I didn’t have the same thoughts that I did after the Ellenberger fight. I felt like I understood then why I was losing, and it was because I was fighting at 170. So I made the move.”

This is what fuckin bugs me about religious people. No God didn't want you to go to middleweight. And if there is a God and that is what God is concerned with, fuck God, that shit is fuckin nonsense Phone Post 3.0

No no guys the interview was miquoted, he mean't his Dog wanted him to go back to middleweight. Marquardt talks to his Dog and it talks back, sounds like Scooby Doo apparently.

" on the ninth day, God pumped Nate with synthetic testosterone and pitted him against his fellow man."

I'm sure God is really concerned with what weight some washed up MMA fighter competes at.


Seriously, hes plenty fucking busy trying to find your soul
