Marlon Moraes is quickly establishing himself as one of the top bantamweights in the game. But in order to be considered as the best, Moraes knows he must defeat fighters ahead of him in the rankings, and most of those fighters reside in the UFC.

Marlon is the man, and soon will be touching down in the UFC.

I agree. Marlon is the man. He's gonna run out of competition at WSOF.
I'd like to see how he would do against a guy like TJ Dillashaw.

He's more than ready for the ufc

The last two years he's been very impressive and imo he's right on the outside looking in at the top 10. Some ufc wins would bring him to that next level.

I might have Moraes ranked a little too high right now. I have him at #9 on my personal rankings, right between Dillashaw and Mizugaki.
The Bantamweight Division is really tough to rank and it usually has the biggest variations with other top ranked fighters outside of the UFC such as Bibiano Fernandes, Eduardo Dantas, Moraes and Tyson Nam lingering close to the top 10.

I could see the Nam/Bollinger winner getting Moraes next.

Marlon beat Nam two fights ago.
Nam will not get Marlon ever again.
