Nate Marquardt Says He Wasn't Getting The Right Training At Welterweight
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.28.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Nate Marquardt (33-13-12 MMA, 11-6 UFC) said that he moved to middleweight because he wasn't getting the right training at the welterweight level. The move paid off as he submitted James Te Huna (16-8 MMA, 5-4 UFC) today at UFC Fight Night 43. Here are highlights:

On his training: "My training was suffering because of the diet. I wasn't getting the right training. I wasn't able to recover from workouts, and I definitely think the cut the week of the fight was affecting me in the fight. I believe this is where I'm supposed to be, at 185."

On the difference with this fight and his previous fights: "I feel like my confidence has been built back up leading up to this fight, and I definitely needed it. James came in wanting to bang right away. There was no feeling-out process, but I was ready for it. I was ready to engage."

On the crowd's silent reaction to Te Huna's loss: "It felt great. This sport can be very emotional, so I had to really focus on controlling my emotions beforehand. For sure, it's always a relief after you win a fight because you're trying to control your emotions the whole time, and then all of a sudden you can kind of let your guard down and take a breath, so it's nice."
