Yea I just read that on sherdog and I'm stoked for sure. He's pretty much the best P4P grappler out there.

I just hope he doesn't start to pull guard and shit . Would be cool to see one of his awesome arm drag transitions to the back in MMA.

I predict a first round win for Marcelo by RNC.

Marcus Avellan trains with the FFA. They produce some top level MMA fighters, Marcello is definitely not going for some chump in his debut.

Have you seen Masakazu Imanari's sliding leg locks? Pulling guard isn't always a bad idea.
