After a one and a half year layoff from the cage, Nate Marquardt made his Strikeforce debut a very successful one at Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon on Saturday night.

Marquardt knocked out Tyron Woodley at 1:39 of the fourth round to become the Strikeforce Welterweight Champion. The belt was vacant coming into the bout because Nick Diaz left for the UFC last year.
