Brazil series ~ Volume fifty two. Ronny Markes
Brazilian middleweight Ronny Markes (14-1-0) is a veteran of Shooto Brazil and the UFC. With 5 wins via knock out and 4 by submission, he hails from Rio Grande do Norte and fights out of Kimura Gym & Nova Uniao Team amongst champions such as Eduardo Dantas, Renan Barao & Jose Aldo under the tutildge of the great Andre Pederneiras. Ronny Markes began his MMA career in 2007 gaining 10 victories and the Shooto Brazil championship. After an impressive victory over former WEC champion Paulo Filho he was signed by the UFC and made his debut against wrestling champion Karlos Vemola in which he dominated with takedowns and ground and pound. In his next UFC appearance he came from behind after being dropped in round one from a lethal uppercut by Aaron Simpson, winning the next 2 rounds with control in the clinch and takedowns. Ronny Markes is a young up and coming middleweight fighter who looks to have very solid stand up and is extremely strong in the clinch and relentless with takedowns. I can see this prospect being a top contender in the division.
