Marcos Breno is the Bellator 284 fighter to watch

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.

Bellator 284: Neiman Gracie vs. Goiti Yamauchi takes place on Friday, Aug. 12, 2022, live from Sanford Pentagon, Sioux Falls, SD. Follow along with FanSided MMA for all your news and highlights.
