UFC Quick Quote: MMA is a chess match

"MMA is like chess. You have to think several moves ahead. That's going to weed out a lot of non-intelligent people. It's all about training. If you take a good MMA fighter today and put them against the best MMA fighter back then, the fighter today would dominate. Today's fighters are just so well-rounded. The technique has gotten better over time."

-- UFC middleweight contender Nate Marquardt on the evolution of the mixed martial arts fighter as told to the Boston Herald.
