Marlon Moraes started his career off slowly going 5-4-1 in his first 10 fights, but he hasn’t lost since, running off twelve in a row. It took the muay thai expert a little while to round out his skill set, but now that he has, he’s a scary man. He started his time in the World Series of Fighting by disposing of bantamweight legend Miguel Torres.
He won the world series bantamweight title back in 2014 and has defended it successfully four times. His skill set is well-rounded and gets scarier every time we see him. He recently resigned with the WSOF and it appears he will be staying with the promotion for a while. He has scary power for a bantamweight, but what is more frightening is that this one dimensional thai fighter has actually started submitting people. I would love to see how his skills would translate into the UFC’s bantamweight division. Marlon Moraes vs Cody Garbrandt would be absolutely crazy.
