I'm guessing that he will fight Woodley, maybe once more after that and then we'll see him back on the undercard on an upcoming UFC card. Not real sure what Strikeforce has to offer other than that. There are interesting fights at 185(Rockhold, Jacare) but I'm sure he will stay at 170, at least for the near future

If he wins a couple fights in SF he'll for sure be back in the UFC. I like the sound of a Daley v Marquardt matchup.

This is great news. Nate being in anything other than the big leagues is a complete waste of talent.

Good pick up by Strikeforce. Hope to see Nate back in the UFC after a few fights.

Meh. They need to do a lot more than Marquardt if they want to bolster that pathetic roster.

Maybe he steps in to fight Jacare now that Brunson is out.

I'd pay to see that. Actually, it's one of the few matchups for him that I find interesting.

I'd loooooooooooove to see him squash Tim Kennedy.

EDIT: Wait...is Nate still planning the cut to 170?
