Marques started doing taekwondo for fun when he was 10 years old, and around the age of 13, he started in boxing. He started competing at an amateur level, and it became his main activity for many years. Later, at around 18, he started with BJJ, due to his desire to become a more complete fighter, and through my boxing trainer, Ivan “Pitu” de Oliveira (who trains Demian Maia, Shogun Rua and others). he started training some MMA around eight years ago.
Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Starting his professional career in 2014, Marques compiled a 9–2 record fighting on the Brazilian regional scene, winning the GCF Middleweight Championship in this process. Marques's lone bout outside of Brazil came on April 14, 2017 at LFA 9, where he faced Myron Dennis, losing the close bout via split decision.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Marques was expected to face Ed Herman on June 26, 2021 at UFC Fight Night: Gane vs. Volkov. However, Herman was removed from the card due to undisclosed reasons on June 14 and replaced by Kennedy Nzechukwu. Marques controlled the first two rounds with his grappling, but ultimately lost the fight via TKO in round three.
Marques was scheduled to face Jailton Almeida on November 13, 2021 at UFC Fight Night 197. However Danilo required surgery so the bout was rescheduled for February 5, 2022 at UFC Fight Night 200. Marques lost the fight via technical knockout in round one.
On February 23, 2022, it was announced that Marques was no longer part of the UFC roster.
