Marcello Garcia In DREAM GP? Busy 2009

Quote:
American Top Team coach Ricardo Liborio tells GracieMag.com:

“There’s a good chance. Nothing’s in ink yet, but there really is a good chance Marcelo will be in the GP,”

It seems like Garcia will have a busy 2009, Liborio elaborates:

“There’s a chance he’ll be in everything out there this year. Marcelo is hard focused on MMA, but if it happens to come at a time when he has nothing lined up, there’s a good chance he’ll be in the ADCC too. He’s been training a lot of muay thai and wrestling and is good all around,” the ATT coach said.

The DREAM Welterweight GP could be a GP of expert grapplers as Shinya Aoki is already confirmed, and Andre Galvao and Marcello Garcia are close to participation.

Marcello Garcia defeated Shinya Aoki at ADCC 2005.

Marcelo in the GP would be pretty damn fun. Hell, Aoki vs Garcia in an MMA fight looks mighty good right now.

Wow. This is awesome news. The Japanese promotions are stepping up big time in 2009. I loves it.

Any combination of Aoki, Marcelo and Galvao would be ridiculous.

Wow, this is going to be the coolest GP ever. Some of the top BJJ practitioners in the world. I still am picking Aoki to win. While Galvao and Marcelo are by far the better BJJ practitioners, Aoki has a lot of experience and will probably win a grappling match with either of them because of the ability to strike. (even though aoki's strikes arent the best, against two people who are fairly green to mma, its his key to victory)

Wow, this is interesting. Marcelo has been training at ATT for a while now, so I wonder how well his game has adapted to MMA. If Marcelo, Galvao, and Aoki all fight in the GP, I'll probably cream my pants. You're guaranteed some BJJ awesomeness between the three of them.

They are really getting talent out of nowhere for this GP.

Seriously, there were hardly any WW's in Japan that could compete with Sakurai, he would of been a huge favourite. Now they've managed to get Aoki up from Lightweight, Andre Galvao and Marcelo Garcia! EDIT: Alessio and K-Taro also rumoured I see.

I really hope everything rumoured, happens. This GP is going to be so much better than I originally anticipated.

It's a shame that Nick Diaz won't be in it. I'll live with a fun match-up with Frank though.

God damn..

I'd still love to see Diaz in this mix.

Sakurai NEEEDDSS to keep all his fights standing, or he's f*cked.

Seriously Marcelo might win this. He is supposedly amazing on the ground with gloves on he chokes out everyone at ATT with his guillotine.

Marcelo IMO would be possibly the hardest fight possible for Aoki because Aoki would have to outstrike him.

Marcelo is just at a different level on the ground then anyone else.
