After his victory, Marquardt declared that he indeed is the best welterweight in the world. Though there are certain 170-pounders in the UFC who may have something to say about that, specifically division kingpin Georges St. Pierre, whom Marquardt has trained with down at Jackson-Winkeljohns Mixed Martial Arts. When asked if he would ever have a problem facing "Rush," Marquardt said if it came down to it, he would have no issues stepping into the cage with him:

"I have competed everywhere in the world and I know my skills and abilities. Of course, I have to prove that I am the best, but I truly feel that I am the best. You got believe you are the best if you are the fighter. If you don't believe you're the best, then why are you doing it, you know? I got to believe that, and of course I believe I am better than everyone else, so. It's not a shot at Georges, personally. You, know, we have talked about it, but we will have to cross that bridge when we get there. It's, we know it is a possibility so. Yes, if that's, how it has to be, then so be it."

GSP would lay a HUGE beat down to the viewing fans if they ever fought.

What about Rory vs Nate? I wouldn't mind watching that. I think Rory would dominate, but might make for good tv. Phone Post

I always want Nate to do good but it seems like when he gets a big shot, he blows it.

dustin dustin - If he couldnt beat chael, why does he think he can beat a younger, faster, more explosive, better striking version of chael who happens to have better mma wrestling and a blackbelt in jujitsu?

GSP would beat everyone in the division nate got ran out of.


Nate didn't get run out of the division. I think most of us were pretty surprised by his decision to drop.

I have no more love for Nate. His whole "I'm off TRT now" situation seems so suspect. He was sooooo much bigger than Woodley that I actually felt bad for him. Not like Rumble vs Spaniard bad, but still.. Now one fight he's the WORLD'S best? Cmon bro. Humble yourself

He's still juicing IMO. Just my opinion, not bashing Phone Post

Nate looked good. Think he matches up against GSP better than Diaz or Condit. Phone Post

He couldn't handle GSP's wrestling when he was much bigger. How does he think that's changed. Sorry Nate I like you but it seems somewhat delusional to me. Respect for having the courage to say it I guess. Phone Post

see to me he makes it clear he doesn't think he's the best. "You got believe you are the best if you are the fighter. If you don't believe you're the best, then why are you doing it, you know?"

to me that sounds like he's trying to justify saying he thinks he's the best. not declaring that he is.

I dunno, just me. he'd get creamed by GSP anyway, it would be terrible

nate got out boxed by okami, so...


GSP would frustrate the crap out of Nate, and i don't think nate would out wrestle gsp, so GSP by any means necesarry, but most likely UD.

thoughts?

Who is GSP "creaming" lately? GSP isnt hurting anyone, Marquardt would do fine against him. GSP would outwrestle him to a decision

"You need to be great at more than 1 skill to fight gsp"

He's a blackbelt with KO power and strong wrestling.

This is a great idea cause if Nate or rory wins you could build good story lines heading into title fight with GSP Phone Post

After four failed attempts in the UFC to deal with his hormonal problems and play by the rules, I hope he stays at strikefarce.
