Per MMA Junkie

Former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nate Marquardt (32-11-2 MMA, 10-4 UFC) will meet Jake Ellenberger (28-6 MMA, 7-2 UFC) at UFC 158, a source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Monday evening.

Marquardt fills a spot left vacant by Johny Hendricks, who was tapped to meet onetime UFC title challenger Carlos Condit when Rory MacDonald was forced to withdraw from the event due to injury.

Marquardt vs. Ellenberger still serves on the March 16 event's pay-per-view main card, which follows prelims on FX and Facebook.

UFC 158 takes place at Montreal's Bell Centre.

Marquardt hopes to rebound after losing the Strikeforce welterweight title in the promotion's final event, which took place this past month in Oklahoma City. Tarec Saffiedine battered the onetime UFC middleweight title challenger with leg kicks en route to a unanimous-decision win.

In his previous outing, Marquardt captured the Strikeforce belt with a fourth-round KO of Tyron Woodley, who also volunteered to fight Ellenberger at UFC 158.

Marquardt returns to the octagon two years after failing to receive medical clearance to headline UFC on VERSUS 4 against Rick Story, which prompted the promotion to release him. Later, he revealed that a regimen of testosterone-replacement therapy caused his scratch from the event.

Ellenberger returns to the cage following a decision over win Jay Hieron this past October at UFC on FX 5. Although far from flashy, the win nevertheless put him back on the right track after Martin Kampmann knocked him out at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale, which snapped a six-fight win streak that put him on the list of future contenders.

I dont understand why you would want to see a guy who has already has his first fight in the UFC over the guy that brutally KOed him and is making his UFC debut at 170. Just my opinion though. I guess that one knockout from Woodley has erased all of his blanketing days.

EDIT: This was supposed to be quoting Knippz.

The card loses one of its main guys and recovers nicely.

Oh no, it's still fresh on my mind. But I tend to agree that it should be a guy coming off of a win - Woodley, Maia, the Saff infection, etc. And Nate frustrates me. And fuck me this is for dominantdan who I also didn't quote.

Would have prefered Woodley vs Ellenberger. I know Woodley wanted a shot on this card, sucks for him.

Ohh well, Nate vs Jake will be a good fight. Phone Post

Knippz I think the quote system is screwed cause I defo quoted you this time.  For what its worth, Maia wouldve been my choice to fill in, but I wouldnt have moved Hendricks either.
