"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.

Quite a statement from someone who has had a very up and down career and just had a win over a good, but certainly not great, fighter.

His KO last night was unbeleivable.

The combo he landed was just perfect in every way, but I don't think he would do very well against guys like GSP. After all, Woodley was able to hold him down for a while and even badly hurt him on the feet a few times, imagine what GSP would do.

He put on a great show last night and was undeniably impressive, but I'm going to hold off calling him the best WW in the world for now... Phone Post

GSP and Nate know each other and trained together.

He's fully aware of his buddy GSP when making this statement.

I don't knock a fighter for having confidence in his abilities and striving to be the best. His statement might be a hyperbole, but that's fine. He's a game fighter who puts on nice scraps for us fans

 He looked great last night. He's not an easy fight for anyone in the top ten.

He's simply excited after his win. He looked good and I don't think it's stretch to call him one of the best at welterweight. The best? Probably not but we won't know until after they merge the UFC and Strikeforce or he returns to the big show. For the time being he is the biggest fish in a small pond. Phone Post

That was his first fight at welterweight. Safe to say he is higher than Woolley on the list.

This was his debut match in the weight class. So no you didn't miss his name on that list. You just missed a whole lot of other stuff.

Lmao. Good catch. Obviously a guy who has never fought at 170 wouldn't be on a 170 list. But carry on Mr almighty. Phone Post

Guess since your last smartass comment was proved to be a dumbass comment, you had to try again. Well congrats. This time you are correct. I am in fact Mr. Almighty. I have the cape and the omnipotence to prove it. I'll show you sometime, but right now I'm busy watching my soaps.
