He's got good quick feet, but he's got a long way to go if he wants to be on Fedor's level.
Being a good wrestler can be a blessing and a curse, if everytime he gets rocked he's gonna go for a takedown and be so obvious about it, he is not going to have a great MMA career.
Not sure what he weighs now, but I think he was fighting at around 170 or 185....and you think he can compete with Fedor at 220+?
Hopefully Marcelo is concentrating on his boxing....and he better hope it doesn't mess with his quick feet and his more natural wrestling stance.
That sucks Marcelo Garcia lost to that guy (Dae Won Kim) from a cut?
I watched the fight on youtube, and its super hard to see the any cut on Marcelo. Any way I hope Marcelo does good on future matches.
MMA match between Marcelo and Fedor, I'm going to have to go with Fedor.
