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.”
