Should Nathan Marquardt be the #1 Contender

The man has three straight victories in the UFC and was the king of Pancrease! Should he get a title shot before Swick and the TUF 4 winner or should he have more fights?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Again... NO.

Look at his last three wins?
Ivan Salaverry, Joe Doerksen and Crafton Wallace.

...and those were his only fights in the UFC.

Swick has 5 fights in the UFC.
His last three fights were wins to...

Steve Vigneault, Joe Riggs, and David Loiseau.

Not to mention he is 10 - 1, while Nate is 22 - 6.

Swick only has one impressive win and Nates been in he UFC longer and has had better pre-ufc credentials with Pancrase. So I vote Marquardt.

Doesn't Franklin have the option of a rematch?

Gotta think the third defense for Silva, if he makes it that far, will be against Franklin, with the other two going against the TUF winner and probably Mike Swick afterwards.

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

Nate gets my vote. He's been winning, King of Pancrase, more experience. I think he deserves it

Purely my opinion but I don't think Swick would beat either Ivan Salaverry or Joe Doerksen. I think Nate has been getting passed up.
