    I so wanted Nate to pull off one more Tekken combo.

    Nate had plenty of opportunity to get a strap... would have liked to see him get it once.

    He did get the SF WW belt for what its worth. Never was able to defend it but he had it.

    Thanks TS, I never caught this fight till now. Can't believe that Marquardt was protesting that stoppage.

    Good fight, Jake did a good job cutting off the cage and cornering Nate.

    Hope Nate does well back at 185, always fun to watch.

    Man ellenberger is a killer. He's gonna be the next title-holder at WW IMO.

    I've always thought he had the real potential to get the belt even while GSP was champ and now his chances along with everyone elses though go up. He just needs to keep a cool head on him and not have a repeat of his Rory performance.

    One of the sickest KOs.

    Jake is one of my favorite fighters, especially after watching his war with Condit. But I don't think he becomes champ, his performance never seem to be steady enough. When he is on though, man is it awesome to watch!
