Aurelio Vs. Prater Added To Shine 2: ATT Vs. The World


COCONUT CREEK, FL (USA) – UFC & PRIDE veteran, Marcus Aurelio has been added to what is now the most phenomenal card to ever hit Miami, Shine 2. As a member of the American Top Team, Aurelio joins his fighting family on the card, which is appropriately sub-titled, `American Top Team vs. The World.’

Beginning his career in 2002 where he started off on a 5-fight win streak. After compiling an impressive reputation for exciting wins on the smaller show circuit, Aurelio made his debut in the former Japanese juggernaut organization, PRIDE. Facing world greats like: Takanori Gomi and Dokojonosuke Mishima, Aurelio compiled a respectable 3-3 record in the organization. Immediately after Pride, Aurelio entered the UFC taking his career into newer heights in America. After many harrowing battles, Aurelio left the organization after a battle with former teacher, Hermes Franca.

Now on a two fight win streak, Aurelio is ready to get back into the bigger spotlight and has entered South Florida’s premiere MMA show, Shine.

His opponent is none other than World Extreme Cage Fighting veteran, Carlo Prater. Fresh off of a unanimous decision win, Prater is 24-6 with most of his wins coming by submission. With Aurelio at 18-7 with 11 submission victories this will be a lightweight battle not to be missed.
