"I've heard that, that he holds on to stuff too long, but I don't really care about that. When I go to fight, I fully expect guys to do whatever they can to win, and if that means them trying to cheat or whatever, you have to be ready for that. You have to protect yourself at all times and that means even from things that are illegal. I'm going to come prepared and I'm going to do my best to stay out of any kind of submission hold so that issue won't even come up."
-- Nate Marquardt, in a recent interview on "The MMA Hour," reveals that he is well aware of the Kung Fu grip of Rousimar Palhares, who he takes on in the UFC Fight Night 22 main event on Sept. 15, 2010. Palhares has been called out a handful of times for not releasing his submission holds soon enough, including a heel hook on Tomasz Drwal at UFC 111 back on March 27, which resulted in a 90-day suspension despite the win. Marquardt has rich history with fighters who hang on too long -- he struck Ricardo Almeida way back when after the fight was over because he felt "Cachorrao" applied a choke too long after he tapped. Almeida's coach and mentor, Renzo Gracie, flew through the ropes and kicked "The Great" in the grill for the extracurricular activities. Any chance we see more shenanigans on fight night or are both fighters, as well as the referee, prepared to keep it super clean this time around?
