Nate Marquardt-Jake Ellenberger Slated For UFC 158

Former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nate Marquardt appears to be the man tabbed to face Jake Ellenberger this March at UFC 158. confirmed with sources that Marquardt will replace Johny Hendricks, who took a bout with Carlos Condit the same evening after Rory MacDonald went down with an injury.

Marquardt (32-11-2) took to his Twitter account late Monday and confirmed that he could be ready to face Ellenberger if the UFC wanted him to. He also pushed to face Condit before Hendricks took the fight.

The former UFC middleweight contender lost to Tarec Saffiedine on the final Strikeforce card last month. He was released by the UFC two years ago after a failed medical report caused him to miss a main event fight.
