Brian Knapp of The Fight Network is reporting that lightweights Marcus Aurelio and Luke Caudillo have agreed to terms on a deal that will have them clash at UFC 78:
A representative from the American Top Team today confirmed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Marcus Aurelio has accepted a fight with Luke Caudillo at UFC 78 “Validation” Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Though both parties have agreed to the lightweight bout, according to ATT, contracts have not yet been signed.
This seems like an easy win for Aurelio. Caudillo has some wins by submission throughout his career but was controlled on the ground in his last fight by Nate Mohr, who isn’t known for his skills on the mat as we all know. Let’s hope this one goes down as Aurelio’s presence on the card will improve it even more.
