The former Strikeforce welterweight champion is already feeling the effects from the blistering leg kicks that Tarec Saffiedine hit him with on Saturday night.

Saffiedine defeated Nate Marquardt via unanimous decision to become the new and final Strikeforce welterweight champion. Marquardt posted some pics of his leg via his Twitter account:

The former champion added this caption to the pics:

Swelling has gone down from last night believe it or not. Should’ve checked those kicks! I want to thank my sponsors, team and all who support me. Wasn’t my night but I’ll be back stronger. Praise the Lord!

Marquardt is still expected to join the UFC roster even though he lost to sizable underdog Saffiedine. Stay tuned to ProMMAnow ( for more news and coverage.
