Marcel who recently represented South Africa at the MMA world Champs in Vegas, has earned his right at the shot with impressive wins in hes last few outings. ” He is a real talent, a guy that can win a fight in a second. He is a finisher and I think that Roedie will have his hands full come 5th December ” said Grant Oliff Fightstar Match Maker.

” Well look I am so blessed, GOd put me on this awesome path.
