Fun fight, good step-up for Uriah and I think he could win.

Yeah, Marquardt's confidence and killer instinct would be the deciding factor even presuming they are comparable strikers and the takedown isn't there for him.

Nate knows better than to stand and trade with a striker; he's been KTFO too many times, he can't be that dumb so I would expect him to clinch and take Hall down right away. Maybe he'll even sub him or at least a UD.

That weight cut to 170 was too much for him. Looks a lot better at 185.

those losses Nate had were from guys catching him early with big power. Hall is a fan of Anderson, moves on the outside, but along the cage for escaping to create space rather than for creating offense with that movement. This gives Nate openings for takedowns, and he's the better grappler by a good margin.

Why not, Hall has to start somewhere to get in that fringe top 10 crowd, and both are fairly well-known.

Agreed, Marquardt certainly doesn't lack killer instinct. His wrestling is also very underrated especially his takedowns, people forget that he outwrestled Okami. That fight was so strange, I expected Okami to get the better of the grappling and Marquardt to get the better of the striking but the opposite ended up happening.

Marquardt looks much better at MW, he seems like one of those guys that might be a bit on the small side for his division but going down just seems to hurt his speed, cardio and ability to take punishment.

Or a hook like how Weidman caught him.

Always forget Hall was besmirched by Weidman early on.

I think Marquardt is a tough SOB but I'd expect Hall to knock him out, personally.

I'm all over Urijah Hall's nuts though.
