I never liked Marcus Aurelio much. He's got phenomenal ground skills if he can get his mind right. Unfortunately he seems to be full of quit.

I know that's kind of dick of me to say, but I have always felt that way about him.

I'm always a fan of a guy that has ground skills like that of Marcus but I do agree with you.

No doubt that his ground game is one of the best but when he gets tired and can't sink in a submission he just goes through the motions it seems half heartedly trying for a submission here and there.
