Tough one to call. Is Vitor really back and is Marquardt's stand-up really that much improved?
Great fight... Two guys with great hands and BJJ black belts we haven't seen them use for a while..
I like this match up more than Vitor/Anderson just because of the dynamics of the fighters
common sense would tell you the answers are a resounding yes.
I can see either one winning but if Marquardt comes at Vitor with his overaggressive Bully style I can see him getting Ko'd in the first round. I think Vitor is going to win. He is going to be cautious and pick his shots and when one lands he will swarm the shit out of him.
I think Marquardt can take it
i dont know who to root for
should be a great fight
Marquardt will dominate.
pulling for nate.
vitor has the more dangerous striking, and i feel that nate is the superior grappler.
I see it being that, or Marquardt spending 10 minutes in Belfort's guard until Vitor gasses.
Vitor all the way, KO 1ST ROUND
damn...too close to call either way
I guess that is the question we will find out. If Marquardt slips he is liable to get knocked out and Vitor hasnt been really tested since his loss to Henderson. I think Marquardt will need to use his wrestling to combat Vitor's hand speed.
Edit: I know he fought Franklin and Lindland but I dont believe he was tested in either.
NIIIIICE. This is gonna be an awesome fight, i dunno who's gonna win but i can't wait to see it.
Looks like Anderson got his way thanks to this surgery, COINCIDENCE?? I DUNNO
Come on Nate
classic case of your goku vs vegeta.
I like vitors new style it combines his old ferocity with experience and patience. I really hope he can pull this off
considering Marquardt wanted to take on Maia on the ground in order to prove his BJJ credibility I'm pretty sure he's gonna stand with Vitor in order to prove his standup. He's gonna get lit up. Vitor by KO/TKO
He has fought a total of 3:30 in 2009.
You must have missed that fight, huh?
the fight was over in 21 fucking seconds watch the all access or whatever it was that aired on spike before the fight. All he could talk about is how he's going to take on maia on the ground and show everybody that he can hang with the best in BJJ
same man. vitor is the man. i want him to be the first to defeat anderson silva holding the belt.
I think vitor has all the tools to get in there and really beat down nate. Nate is powerful but is just not as fast as vitor.
its cuz hes Brazilian but not too Brazilian. Like Paulo Filho he is too Brazilian so people dont like him where as thiago alves is Brazilian but not tooo Brazilian so he is acceptable.
same reason people like wayne brady.
speed always beats strength.
