I don't understand why somebody would feel as if Nate Marquadet is the number one contender. He has had two UFC fights. The first one was a very lack luster decision win over Ivan Salaverry and the other one was another ok decision against Joe Doerkson. I like the two fighters he went up against, however, he didn't outright beat either one of them. I think a very clean win over an Evan Tanner, Jeremy Horn, or David Louisou and then we can start thinking about him as a true contender.
I believe the next shot should be given to Anderson Silva with Mike Swick waiting in the wings if he beats Louisou.
The true number one contender in my mind is Jeremy Horn, but we all know him and Franklin will not get it on.
