“UFC Fight Night 22” took place Wednesday night at the Frank Erwin Special Events Center on the campus of The University of Texas.
The card featured a middleweight tussle between former top contender Nathan Marquardt and grappling ace Rousimar Palhares.
Marquardt was looking to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Chael Sonnen, who earned a shot at Anderson Silva’s title with his performance at UFC 109 in February. Despite the minor setback, Marquardt still owns an impressive 29-9-2 resume and remains one of the planet’s best 185-pounders.
Palhares holds a respectable 11-2 record and has rattled off three straight wins. The BJJ ace has finished off eight of his victims via submission.
