Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine Live Odds

Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine was a mixed martial arts event held by Strikeforce. The event took place on January 12, 2013 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The event aired live on Showtime.

Luke Rockhold was scheduled to defend his Strikeforce Middleweight Championship for the last time against Lorenz Larkin at this event, but was forced off the card due to injuries.

Larkin was instead matched up with former champion Ronaldo Souza in late November, but on December 20, it was announced that UFC middleweight Ed Herman would be facing Souza instead.

The Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine fight card had a lot of one-sided matchups, but it turned out to be one of the most entertaining shows in the promotion's history. Unfortunately, it'll also be the final Strikeforce event.

Nate Marquardt vs Tarec Saffiedine:

Round 5: Saffiedine controls Marquardt on the fence in the early part of the final round. Marquardt gets away and Saffiedine just keeps going after the gruesome, bruised leg. Marquardt is finally checking kicks, but it’s far too late.

Marquardt gets the outside position, clinching Saffiedine on the fence, but he can’t muster anything, instead eating short punches underneath from Saffiedine. Again, Marquardt leans on Saffiedine against the fence. This time, Saffiedine is able to get out with ease, throwing a knee as he escapes.

Down to the final minute of the bout and Saffiedine drives Marquardt to the canvas with a huge slam. Saffiedine looks to briefly consider an arm-triangle, lets go and instead finishes out the round punching from top position. We’re going to the judges’ scorecards and Saffiedine should be getting his first major MMA title.
