of all the solid fighters in the mw division right now, marquart would give franklin his biggest test. he has a complete game and IMO is stronger then franklin and should be able to control the fight on the ground. nate has good striking with a very good ground game. IMO him and franklin are very similar. if franklin was ready i think him and marquart would headline 62 but i wouldnt be suprised to see marquart vs lister or A.silva if he beats leben at 62 with the winner getting franklin and the fighter who didnt get the fight fighting swick. personally i would like to see lister vs marquardt and the winner of A.silva vs leben vs swick. in the latter fight either matchup is great and overall the mw division is stacked right now.
