It was 2009 when Marcus “Lelo” Aurelio (6-1) first made a name for himself. The Brazilian saw himself become a Youtube sensation after a small Canadian regional show. In a mere 20 seconds, he had separated Keegan Marshall from consciousness with a spectacular double meia lua kick that circulated the internet at lightning speeds.
His reign of chaos has continued. Now standing undefeated since his professional debut, with all wins coming via stoppage, the capoeira specialist is stepping up to the big stage after signing with Bellator.
The dynamic welterweight is set to make his promotional debut at Bellator 73, joining what is arguably the company’s most stacked division on August 24.
“Of course my ultimate goal in Bellator is to become a champion, but I’m not looking past my next opponent. I’m thrilled to showcase what I’m capable of in August for Bellator.” – Aurelio
