UFC 78: Luke Caudillo vs. Marcus Aurelio


Another bout is added to the UFC 78-Validation card!

Luke Caudillo (12-8) will be taking on Marcus Aurelio (14-5) in the Lightweight division.  Marcus Aurelio is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master who continues training with the American Top Team.  His most notable win was against Takanori Gomi when he pulled an arm triangle on Gomi in a non-title fight at a Pride Bushido Lightweight tournament.  He debuted with the UFC at UFC 74-Respect (results and pics), where he lost to Clay Guida via a split decision.  He will look to add his first win in the UFC when he faces Caudillo at UFC 78-Validation.

Luke Caudillo is also coming off a loss to Nate Mohr via a unanimous decision at the Ultimate Fight Night 10 back in early June.  With a 12-8 record, he too will look for his first UFC win, so expect a battle between both fighters.
