Marquardt expecting immediate title shot in Strikeforce


In February, it was announced that Marquardt's first fight for Strikeforce would be opposite welterweight contender Tyron Woodley. According to a recent interview Marquardt had with "Inside MMA," the fight will be for the vacant 170-pound belt

"It's the best outcome I could have imagined, with all this. Like I said. Back with Zuffa. Back in a title fight for my first fight back, it's amazing. From what I understand, that's who I'll be fighting is Tyron Woodley. I also understand it's gonna be a five round title fight for the 170 pound title. You know, he's a smart fighter, but at the same time, I have a lot more experience than him. It's gonna be my fight to dictate where it goes.

It certainly makes for a dramatic twist.

 "-Champ Gilbert Melendez vs. Josh Thomson (for Strikeforce Lightweight title)" I like Josh, but he is very undeserving of this rematch, especially for a title.

Thats a terrible fight, totally pointless fight.But whatever, watch Chandler beat him will be ok.Still though, Chandler, you won a tournament, you fought for the title, you beat a top 5 LW and won the Bellator championship, your reward, a fight with Gono. LOL

This is a great card.even with a LW title fight that most dont really care about, still with Cormier/Barnett, Gilbert/Punk and Tyron/Nate with Kyle/Feijao, thats a great card from SF.May is stacked.Fox card is deep with fights, Floyd/Cotto, great Fuel card with Zombie/Dustin P, great SF card and then the HW card 146.Plus Bellator fights, Chandler is fighting, all the tournament finals, Konrad/Prindle, great month for fight fans.
