What happened to Nate

Marquardt was a perennial top MW for years. His cut to 170 doesn't seem too draining.

Tarec, Jake and Lombard all destroyed him WTF?! Phone Post

I'm not gonna say it. Phone Post

Fuckin' punches, man... Phone Post 3.0

Lack of defense standing. In his run at MW he never fought any one shot ko types aside from Anderson.

He hasn't been fighting top competition and when you stop fighting top guys, you regress. Leaving the UFC put him on the downward spiral and he hasn't come back to form.

It's what didn't happen that is most important I think...

He got hit in the face...a lot Phone Post 3.0

Maybe the weight cut has made his chin more vulnerable. Phone Post 3.0

it seems like he has been missing something in his last few fights...

Not this again.... Phone Post

Maybe nate needs to move back up to MW

He has lost all confidence, and now fights scared IMO. Also once you get KO'd, it gets a little bit easier to happen again. He also made some changes in his training and "nutrients" that have hurt him.

He fought well against Woodley. Very aggressive. The guy doesn't exactly fight chumps. I don't think he was a guaranteed winner in any of his recent fights. Phone Post 3.0

I think it's been a lack of Truth, Recognition and Timing.

He got LOMBARDED with a ton of hard shots...

god wanted him to lose, that is all.

Zero boxing defense and he leaves himself wide open for counters when he attacks Phone Post 3.0

Seemed intimidated by Lombard last night IMO Phone Post 3.0
