LAS VEGAS – For nearly three years, Julian Marquez was absent from the UFC cage. As he battled through multiple setbacks and injuries, Marquez (9-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) struggled mentally and physically. When he returned in February, however, the long road proved to be the correct one as he defeated Maki Pitolo in a “Performance of the Night” bonus-earning win. He followed it up with a “Fight of the Night” bonus-earning victory over Sam Alvey in April. On Saturday at UFC Fight Night 195 , he’ll seek his third-straight bonus-earning victory when he battles rising Jackson Wink MMA middleweight Jordan Wright (12-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on the main card. “Man, I’m golden, dude,” Marquez told MMA Junkie at a pre-fight news conference Wednesday.
