Marquardt can't strike in the middle of the cage. Anyone with decent technique beats him there on points or KO/TKO.

Marquardt is only dangerous dirty boxing against the cage (maybe) or when someone is standing perfectly still in front of him.

Ellenberger should outclass him and make him look one dimensional unless something ridiculous happens.

I think Ellenberger will mix it up and grab a win here.

I think Nate makes it look easy. I hope they make him rematch Maia at 170 next.

while Jake has better technical stand up and more power.. if Nate can steer clear this may turn into a war.. Especially late 2nd and 3rd round, Nate doesn't have great conditioning but on average it's still better than Mr. Ellenberger's...

I think Jake is better but short of a flash KO he is gonna have to work hard for this win.

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Knobs, both of them.

I hope they knock each other out cold.

Nate is one of the more talented fighters, but dropped some big fights in his career.

I don't know what's going on, but I'm very curious to see if he would face GSP. For that I'll go with Nate.

Nate has said before that he'd be willing to fight GSP if he were ever in a position to do so.

Hopefully Onion burger comes in well conditioned for this one. I can see him beating Marquardt. I don't mind Marquardt, but he's too inconsistent for me to really follow him. I wouldn't want to see him defeat Jake just to go on to lose his next big fight in typical fashion.

Marquardt takes this. Better technique, faster, more varied.

It could be interesting if Ellenberger goes full wrestler since Marquardt is far too passive off his back.

But I think they come out and bang, Ellenberger waits all fight for the big punch and gets cut to pieces for three rounds instead.
