Review: 2015-01-03, disappointing fight between Nate Marquardt and Brad Tavares: it gets two stars. The black belt in Bjj and former Strikeforce Ww champion Nate Marquardt entered this fight with a mma record of 33-13-2 (76% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.22 middleweight in the world, he suffered three consecutive defeats in 2013, the last one against Hector Lombard (=Lombard vs Marquardt), but then he came back to win last year beating James Te Huna in his only fight of 2014 (=Te Huna vs Marquardt).
His opponent, Brad Tavares, has an official record of 12-3-0 (50% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.28 in the same weight class but he comes off two consecutive defeats: against Yoel Romero (=Tavares vs Romero) and Tim Boetsch (=Boetsch vs Tavares). Marquardt vs Tavares is on the undercard of Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier – UFC 182. Watch the video and rate this fight!
