Middleweights Nate Marquardt and Yushin Okami meet in a UFC 122 clash that will determine the next challenger for the UFC middleweight championship. Marquardt is coming off a destructive win over Rousimar Palhares at UFC Fight Night to rebound from his UFC 109 loss to Chael Sonnen. With this win Nate "The Great" will move into position to rematch Anderson Silva, the man who beat him in July of 2007. Okami is also a victim of Chael Sonnen and has now rebounded with two straight wins, including a split decision over Mark Munoz.
