Nate Marquardt prayed for James Te Huna before fighting him at UFC Fight Night 43.
“Please protect this guy so he doesn’t get too hurt,” said Marquardt. His faith, and the Christian hip-hop song he used for entrance music, gave him peace against Te Huna.
At welterweight, though, which ranges from 156-170 pounds, Marquardt would be the giant. Pierre, the undisputed UFC welterweight champ since 2008. Pierre dominated, Marquardt assumed he’d do the same at 170 pounds. Throughout his three-month training camp, he mapped out the meals necessary to lose the weight.
If his meal didn’t fill him after a difficult morning workout, tough luck—he couldn’t eat again until after a second workout.
Dehydration not only drains strength, it makes fighters more susceptible to concussions and knockouts.
That was the state Marquardt was in when he planned to retire from MMA.
Only when the losses, and tens of thousands of dollars in debt, sent him lower than he had ever been in his life did he realize that he needed to reassess his priorities.
“God really showed me where my heart was,” said Marquardt. And he showed me that he’s been protecting me my whole life, and he’s going to continue to be with me.
Once I realized that and how bad the condition of my heart was, I decided to change everything—not just certain parts of my life, but everything.” Everything included music.
