    Final Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine (14-3) earned himself the biggest win of his career against Nate Marquardt (32-11) last weekend. Saffiedine, who compiled a 12-1-1 record as an amateur kickboxer, all but booked a place in the UFC with his leg kick clinic. He told ESPN he had expected more offense from “The Great.”

    I expected Marquardt to run him down and put on a clinching clinic. :/

    Marquardt was just completely off. Very disappointing.

    As did I. I thought it would be a close fight with Nate winning.

    Marquardt is a Bully.

    Once he realizes he cant bully you he folds. That, or he looks for an opening to pounce. if it never comes he cant switch gears.

    What's with nate and big fights. Does he need a sports psychologist?

    Did he have a bad cut? He looked tired by the 2nd round.

    TS, Thank You for posting. Kind of surprising that Saffiedine hasn't been approached by UFC yet.

    You have to give Terec some props, for making 99.99% of MMA fans look like fools. I would have bet my house that Nate would tool him.

    it looked to me like Nate came to this fight with 50% of his strength and conditionning.

    Much credit to Tarrec but I just feel like he fought the shadow of Nate
