Through the first 4 years of Marlon Moraes’s Professional MMA career, it was hard to tell what he would become. Fast hands and a good ground game, but unable to create an impressive winning streak. Posting a respectable 7-4-1 record, but not doing much to stand out. That was until November of 2012 when Moraes stepped up and fought long time veteran Miguel Torres at the inaugural World Series of Fighting. Putting his name on the map with a split decision victory. Follow that up with one of the most devastating knockout’s in MMA history against Tyson Namm at WSOF 2, and a new star was born.
Marlon is on the verge of becoming the sports most highly touted Free Agent. The only thing standing in front of him and a potential lucrative contract, is former foe Josh Hill. Marlon is ready to do whatever it takes to get a repeat victory over Hill, “…it doesn’t matter how. It doesn’t matter what is going to have to happen. If I have to give my blood. If I have to go the 5 rounds. If I have to finish. If I have to knock somebody out. It doesn’t matter how man. I just want to sit on my couch man and see the fight. I’m the winner.”
Listen to the full interview and hear what Marlon has to say about his teammate Eddie Alvarez becoming Champion, his future with World Series of Fighting, and why he thinks Jose Aldo’s spy claims are “bullshit”. All that and more with one of the best Bantamweights in the world today.
