UFC 85: Nate Marquardt vs. Thales Leites

marquardt vs. leites

According to GracieMag, Thales Leites will take on Nate Marquardt at UFC 85, June 7 from the O2 Arena in London, England.

The two were scheduled to meet at UFC 81, but Leites was forced to dropout after suffering a hand injury while training for the fight. MMA veteran Jeremy Horn replaced Leites with only a few days notice, but was quickly submitted by Marquardt with a sick guillotine choke early in the second round.

Here’s what Leites told the mag:

“After waiting for so long, he has been really well studied. I had already seen two of his fights before, I know he’s dangerous, experienced and really aggressive…He knows how to fight standing and on the ground, he’s a tough guy to take down and has a good guillotine.”


  1. fuck yeah i want to see this fight

  2. Leites better not get hurt again because I want to see this too. I think Nate takes this if he can keep it standing most of the time.

  3. Nate Fury says:

    Nate Marquardt will take this one. He really has improved since losing to Silva. He looked superb in his fight with Jeremy Horn. I was really hoping Horn would of won that fight to. Marquardt has and will continue to prove he is one of the best middleweights in the world and I would say he is in the top 3 in the UFC.

  4. nate has has a hybrid style of bjj/wrestiling mixed with boxing and russian sambo-he in the near future will hold the ufc crown-please all bow down before nate the great -www.highaltitudema.com
