Nate Marquardt vs. Jake Ellenberger Fight Set For UFC 158 St-Pierre vs Diaz

Jake Ellenberger (28-6) will now meet former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nate Marquardt (32-11-2) on the March 16 card, The Canadian Press first reported Today.

This recently added fight comes after Rory MacDonald was forced to pull out of his UFC 158 fight against Carlos Condit due to a neck and back injury. As a result, Johny Hendricks, who was originally scheduled to fight Ellenberger, was matched up against Condit, leaving an opening for the former UFC middleweight contender Marquardt to come on board.

UFC 158, headlined by Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz for the UFC welterweight title, takes place next month at Bell Centre in Montreal.
