Capoeira in MMA - Marcus ‘Lelo’ Aurelio (GIFs)

Marcus ‘Lelo’ Aurelio is a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do's flashier distant Brazilian cousin, Capoeira, and has just been signed to Bellator. Don't know how far his ace in the hole strategy will fare against the Bellator guys, but it sure is entertaining to watch. Here are some of GIFs of Marcus ‘Lelo’ Aurelio showing off his Capo skills in MMA bouts in the past:

Just my opinion, but his first kicks, as with most Capoeira practitioners, are jabs or windups- cover up and rush him.

Awesome kicking style from the guy. Wonder when we can see this kinda style more often.
