James Te Huna hopes to find new life in the middleweight division when he takes on Nate Marquardt, himself attempting to restore his former glory, at today's (Sat., June 28, 2014) UFC Fight Night 43 event in Auckland, New Zealand.

Marquardt:

"I know I've been blessed with the skills and the potential to be at the top, and I feel like right now is my time. I am more dangerous at 185-pounds. I'm faster and stronger, I'm able to train harder. All I need is that one chance to finish the fight and that could be it."

Te Huna:

"I started my fighting career in New Zealand when I was 14. It's definitely a dream come true for me, headlining the very first UFC event in New Zealand. I treat every single fight the same but this fight here in particular is a fight that I have to win. My move to middleweight is to try to reinvent myself. I'm going to be faster at this weight and a lot more explosive. I think this is my weight. You've got two explosive athletes, two guys that don't like to stay back, two guys that need this win. This fight is in my hometown, in my home country. I'm not going to take a loss. I need to win this fight."
