Fight video highlights: Nate Marquardt vs Tyron Woodley and Luke Rockhold vs Tim Kennedy from Strikeforce

Nate Marquardt and Luke Rockhold left the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon, last night (Sat., July 14, 2012) with a welterweight and middleweight championship belt wrapped around their waists after victories over Tyron Woodley and Tim Kennedy, respectively.

Particularly impressive was Marquardt, who looked like he didn't lose a single step in his first official drop to 170-pounds. Not only that, he retained his considerable power, using it to clean the previously unbeaten Woodley's clock en route to a brutal fourth round finish.

It may have been "Knockout of the Year."

Rockhold, meanwhile, wasn't worlds apart from his competition but he definitely sent a statement with this five-round unanimous decision win over Kennedy. It's just too bad he was left with calling out Ronaldo Souza for a rematch instead of the big boys in the UFC.
