UFC 122: Dana White says Nate Marquardt is a 'talented guy' but he's a 'choker'

"He is a choker, he choked tonight. Marquardt is such a talented guy, and what I'm seeing is stuff from the Greg Jackson camp. This camp continuously - when these guys fight, their corner is either telling them they're ahead or they're winning. I mean, Nate Marquardt sat here tonight and said that he thought he won the fight. Where the [expletive] is his corner? You go into the last round and you're getting outstruck by a wrestler, and you think you won the fight? And this is consistent with the Greg Jackson camp."

UFC President Dana White, never one to hold back, tells us exactly how he feels about Nate Marquardt (and his entire camp) at the UFC 122 post-fight press conference (via Bloody Elbow). The outspoken head of the world's largest fight promotion says the "Great" is crazy for thinking he beat Yushin Okami. In his three biggest fights with the UFC, against Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen and now Okami, Marquardt's gameplan has been called into question after losing efforts in all of the above. Maniacs, sound off! Do you agree with White? Or does Marquardt have a legitimate case for winning last night?
