Bellator 284 will feature many exciting fighters but Marcos Breno is the one to watch out for.
When Bellator 284 starts, MMA fans everywhere will be in for a treat. The card is one of the deeper ones in recent memory and there’s not even a title fight main event. Instead, fans will be treated to a fantastic encounter pitting Neiman Gracie vs. Goiti Yamauchi. The two submission-focused superstars are not the only reason to tune in, however, as rising prospect Marcos Breno is snatching wins and making a name for himself.
Breno, a 24-year-old bantamweight from Brazil, is 14-2 and finishes more things than Joey Chestnut in a hotdog-eating contest. He’s got eight KO/TKO’s to his name and another five submissions, with one of his wins coming by decision. He’s also not someone who gets dropped easily; as neither of his two losses has come by KO/TKO.
To be clear when we talk about his finishes, this isn’t a man who tags a guy and gets a TKO finish by dropping hammers on a downed opponent like he were a Mario villain. No, this man has home run hitting, knockout power. Of his eight KO/TKO’s, three of them have been genuine, light’s out, dead-eyed knockouts.
A rarity for a guy in his weight class.
Marcos Breno has a huge task ahead of him at Bellator 284
Breno is making his Bellator debut at Bellator 284 and usually, when a guy makes his first fight in the promotion, he gets a nice introduction. Especially an early 20-year-old prospect. Not Breno, however, as he’ll get Josh Hill. Hill, for those new to Bellator, is a 35-year-old fighter who is 21-4, and 3-1 in Bellator.
He’s ranked No. 9 in the bantamweight rankings and while he’s not a finisher like Breno, he’s a tough out for anyone. Especially a 20-something-year-old who’s coming into the biggest fight of his career.
This will not be an easy out for the young Brazillian and a win here will send Breno into the Top 10 after just one fight.
