Nate Marquardt is to fight Brad Tavares at UFC 182 next Saturday, in what is a huge fight for both middleweights. Tavares is looking to rebound from consecutive losses to Yoel Romero and Tim Boetsch, which halted the noted striker’s ascension up the 185 rankings.
Marquardt, meanwhile, is coming off a pivotal, submission win over James Te Huna. Marquardt scored the victory last June, in what was a ‘must win’ situation for the accomplished vet, as he was coming off three straight losses heading into the bout.
You can watch highlights of the memorable win below, which has been tapped as the UFC’s “Submission of the Week” video.
UFC 182 will take place on January 3rd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
