Nate Marquardt Says He's Sticking With Middleweight
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.05.2014
The move is permanent...
Nate Marquardt recently spoke about his fight with James Te Huna at UFC Fight Night 43. Check out the highlights:
On his plans to stay at middleweight: "I believe it's permanent. It's my natural weight, and I feel like I fight best at middleweight."
On still loving his career: "It's what I love to do. It's what God has called me to do, and I love it. It's fun."
On his fight being a main event bout: "It's the same as any fight, to be honest. It doesn't matter (to me) whose name is first on the card. I guess I don't really pay attention to that stuff, who's rooting for who and all that stuff. I'm focused on the fight no matter who it is or where I am."
On the travel time from the US to New Zealand: "I fought for six years in Japan. So traveling westward like that, I think it's very similar. It's pretty easy to get over the jetlag traveling west. I think it should be good."
