As MMA continues its popularity boom around the globe, the talent pool of Brazilian fighters is becoming more and more apparent.
Take for instance, the famed Nova Uniao team, home of UFC featherweight
champion Jose Aldo, as well as a host of notables that includes Eduardo
Dantas, Wagnney Fabiano, Marcos Galvao, Thales Leites, Diego Nunes,
Marlon Sandro and Ronys Torres, among countless others.
On New year's Eve, Nova Unaio product Rodolfo Marques hopes to add his name to that list.
