Nate Marquardt Calls Out, And Wants To KO, Wanderlei Silva

UFC President Dana White called him a “choker” following a title eliminator bout against Yushi Okami at UFC 122 and now Nate Marquardt wants to try and change White's tune by calling out “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva and hoping for a bout where one or the other is going to sleep:

“In order to re-establish myself as the number one contender, my next opponent needs to be an elite fighter who will stand and bang with me in the center of the Octagon until one of us is knocked out. The fight that makes the most sense to me is Wanderlei Silva. I have a ton of respect for Wanderlei and have wanted this fight for years, the fans have wanted this fight, they deserve to see two of the best fighters in the world in an all out war. Wanderlei is an amazing fighter who is very aggressive, I will pursue him with unwavering tenacity, then I will knock him out! I promise the UFC, Dana, my fans, my team, my coaches and most importantly myself that never again will there be a question about my cage aggression.”
