Marquardt: I'm the best welterweight in the world

"I really feel like it's my time," Nate Marquardt told MMAjunkie.com following "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy." "I'm one of the best in the world, and actually, I feel like I'm the best in the world, the best welterweight."

"I feel like I'm the best in the world, and that's who I expect I'll be fighting for my next fight – is one of the best in the world."

A few options exist for his next opponent, though it's debatable whether any are out-of-the-box contenders. Welterweight Jordan Mein rebounded from a decision loss to Woodley with a dominating win over Tyler Stinson on the event's preliminary card. Japanese veteran Kazuo Misaki recently outpointed onetime title challenger Paul Daley. And Tarec Saffiedine is 4-1 in the promotion with his only loss coming via decision against Woodley.

But in the division's current state, the pickings appear slim. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said matchmaker Sean Shelby has recently acquired new talent, including those "who are champions in different leagues," that will be announced in the coming weeks.

Knowing this guy and his family, you couldn't be further from the truth. Isn't there rules against fighter bashing on here? Show some fucking respect.

"beat chael??? what fight were you watching. he landed a punch/or elbow from the bottom that cut chael, and he almost had a guillotine, other then that he got dominated"The reason Chael didn't get a title shot at Abu Dhabi is because he was too beat up by Nate. From the bottom, no less.http://i.ytimg.com/vi/9DU1afkJfQE/0.jpg
