Marcelo Aurelio is a true BJJ prodigy. After starting jiujitsu at age 13 he was awarded his black belt once he turned 17. He's already won two world championships in the black belt division, and once at brown belt as a 15 year old. MMA has always been close to his heart so fighting professionally was always in his plans. He'll probably always be referred to as a one trick pony, but that doesn't bother Marcelo. Nothing makes him feels better than an opponent choked out cold.
