Marlon “Magic” Moraes || Breakdown • Skill Study • Highlights ᴴᴰ
I’ve waited a while on this one, as I’m naturally partial to Renzo affiliated fighters. Though after Saturday’s win on ESPN+ to even the score with the one blemish on his UFC career, and suddenly title contention on the horizon.
Marlon Moraes is a Ricardo Almeida black belt with a black Pra Jiad in striking, has avenged his one (split decision loss, via Renzo favourite, arm-in guillotine) loss since 2011 and becoming an astounding finisher considering his weight class, and especially the competition he has done it against.
Let’s look at a fascinating study in the evolution of fundamentals at the highest level in mixed martial arts. Starting Thai boxing at 7 years old and Jiu-Jitsu at 15, the experience and high-level coaching have taken raw talent and cooked it perfectly. He is an excellent study in footwork, timing, and relentless and steadfast improvement upon prior acquired skill.
His uncanny KO power for a bantamweight, and technically on-point submissions leading to 7 finishes in his last 8 wins, Moraes is a serious threat for the title at 135. Without further ado…….
