The Marquardt/Sakara fight ewill be interesting. Wonder if Nate wil stand and trade will Alessio? The Schaub/Tuchscherer fight is less interesting to me....mostly because of Tuchscherer. He is a tough guy, but I havent been blow away by him. He got a bum deal against "Napao", but his fight against Hague wasnt a barnburner. I am going with a Shaub TKO

Marquardt vs. Sakara??? Dumb

Why is it a dumb idea? Alessio is a great stand up fighter and seems to be improving since he moved to MW. Nate got dominated in his last fight and is looking to start winning again. Match makers see Nate as a contender obvisouly and are trying to get him a win. If Nate sticks to a gameplan of wreslting Sakara to the ground and GnPing him out he wins. If he stands and bangs with Sakara it might be nighty night for Nate!! I really like this match up. And thats hat makes a good fight.....match-ups!
