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.
He didn’t believe oddsmakers, who labeled him an 8-5 underdog. Despite losing his last three fights, Marquardt expected to win easily.
His confidence wasn’t rooted in pride. It was rooted in God.
Marquardt is a professing Christian. His faith, and the Christian hip-hop song he used for entrance music, gave him peace against Te Huna. But the last few years, Marquardt failed to prioritize his faith over his career.
