That preparation has come with help from coach Greg Jackson, and when I interviewed Marquardt Thursday, he raved about Jackson and his training partners (including UFC champions Georges St. Pierre and Rashad Evans) at Jackson's gym in Albuquerque. He also told me the story of how having an extra bottle of Pedialyte earned him his first invitation to that gym.
We also discussed what he expects from his opponent, Wilson Gouveia, and why he won't think ahead to a possible UFC middleweight title fight with Anderson Silva. The full interview is below.
