Nate Marquardt vs James Te Huna full fight video highlights online: UFC Fight Night 43

Nate is great again ... at least this morning.

In a result that shocked very few ardent mixed martial arts (MMA) supporters, Nate Marquardt took James Te Huna out behind the woodshed and laid down a sound beating in their UFC Fight Night 43 Middleweight main event earlier this morning (Sat., June 28, 2014) from The Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. The former No. 1-ranked 185-pound title contender returned to the division after an unsuccessful run at Welterweight (1-3), hoping to resurrect a career at 35 years old. Sans eating a nice uppercut, Marquardt had no real problems with Te Huna, beating him badly on the ground, busting him wide open and then submitting him with an armbar with less than 30 seconds to go in the opening round of a scheduled five frames on Fight Pass. Te Huna -- who was making his divisional debut after struggling in recent matches at Light Heavyweight -- now has three straight losses, all of which were not very competitive. He'll certainly have to change that real soon to avoid getting the ax, while Marquardt lives to fight another day against, hopefully, a fighter near his experienced, well-rounded level.
