“The Great” On Road To Silva

Nathan Marquardt and Anderson Silva are on a collision course for what could be the biggest fight to date for the fighter they call “The Great.”

Yes, I'm already looking past Marquardt's Saturday night match up with the surging Yushin Okami and Anderson Silva's win over Vitor Belfort on the horizon at UFC 126.

On fight night Marquardt will control all phases, bullying Okami around the cage, getting the win and moving on to his long and patiently awaited rematch with the best in the world at any weight.

Okami is going to be trying to notch is 6th win in 7 fights with the loss coming against the now defunct Chael Sonnen but will come up short against a stronger, better conditioned, and smarter fighter in Nathan Marquardt.

And don't just take my word for it. The current odds makers have Marquardt's chances for the win at 66%.

And Vegas doesn't lie right?
