Nate Marquardt vs. Jake Ellenberger Head-to-Toe Breakdown
The UFC 158 reshuffle, caused by an injury to Rory MacDonald, has resulted in Nate Marquardt stepping in against Jake Ellenberger.
Ellenberger was initially scheduled to face Johny Hendricks in a title-eliminator, but Hendricks has been moved up to the co-main event to face Carlos Conduit as a replacement for MacDonald.
Marquardt is the former Strikeforce welterweight champion who's returning to the organization after a two-year exile. He was released from the UFC after his testosterone levels tested too high before his fight agaisnt Rick Story in 2011. Now he's back. After a successful transition to welterweight, Marquardt is looking to prove he's still a force to be reckoned with.
But in front of him is Ellenberger–a man who last year was only one fight away from getting a shot at champion Georges St-Pierre. Here's how the two fighters break down.
