Nate Marquardt recently spoke during a media teleconference call ahead of his fight with Tyron Woodley at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy. Check out the highlights:
On going without TRT: "I've had to find a lot of ways to combat it, and I've had to change my training schedule. But bottom line is, I'm training hard and I feel great. I've felt like this before in training and done awesome."
On wanting to move on: "I'm so sick of answering TRT questions. You'd think the media would want to talk about something new anyway. It's kind of old news. But I've got a title fight coming up, and I feel great."
On his recent tribulations: "I believe God's been testing me. I just feel really grateful at this point. It's been a rough road; I feel like I've overcome the challenges, and I'm just excited to get back in there. I feel like a kid again with one of my first fights."
On moving from middleweight to welterweight: "It's funny because everyone always thought I was a big middleweight, but actually, weight-wise, I was one of the smaller middleweights. I found it fairly easy to fight at 170. I was trying to keep muscle-mass on at 185, and now, I just train and the weight comes off."
