UFC 85 Nate Marquardt v. Thales Leites : technaneutrahumpalizing


It’s even hard to write this over the Booing. I’m a big fan of both of these guys but this will not be what the typical UFC audience wants to see. This fight will be a great technical ground match. (read: men humping on the ground to everyone at BW3’s) Leites’s BJJ is goddamn amazing and his striking is pretty good, but Nate The Great’s wrestling will be the deciding factor in this fight.


Marquard’s striking and Jiu-Jitsu are more then enough to keep him out of trouble, and his superior wrestling will allow him to get into top position. The fighters will neutralize each other on the ground so expect Nate to get takedown after takedown for the duration of this 15 min fight. I think this will be a good fight, its just not going to win over a bunch of drunken rednecks, or drunken limeys in this case.

Thanks MMAWeekly for the pic.
