UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz is in the books and the organization can consider the pay-per view event successful. In the first of three welterweight bouts on the main card, Jake Ellenberger met Nate Marquardt in the octagon in a battle of men who were looking to continue their climb up the 170-pound ladder.

In the bout, Ellenberger looked phenomenal and put together the most impressive performance of the night that ended in a brutal knockout victory over Marquardt in the first-round.
