Nate Marquardt Still Feels He Is One Of The Best Despite Loss

Following his loss to Yushin Okami in a Middleweight title eliminator bout at UFC 122, Nate Marquardt talked to the media and gave an assessment of his standing in the division:

“I felt great coming into this fight. Mentally, I felt ready. I had a great camp. I had a great game plan, and honestly, I feel like I was landing the harder shots. When he was catching me, it wasn't really affecting me, but the judges perceive it as him controlling the fight. I felt I did enough to win, but I wasn't a spectator. I was in the fight, so it's hard for me to say. Either way, I'm still one of the best, and I'm going to get back in there and be the champ one day.”
