Daniel Marcos is an MMA fighter from San Diego, California. He has been competing in the UFC since 2017 and has become one of the most recognizable fighters in the organization. His success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) earned him a spot on ESPN’s Top 10 Prospects list for 2018.

Growing up in San Diego, Daniel was always involved with sports like basketball and football. He soon developed a love for martial arts and began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at age 16 under legendary instructor Cesar Gracie. After graduating from high school, he went on to compete in several amateur tournaments including winning gold at Grapplers Quest North American Nationals before turning professional shortly after his 21st birthday.

Daniel made his professional debut by joining Bellator’s welterweight division as part of their ‘Summer Series’ event series which saw him win his first four fights against opponents such as Tim Welch, Jeremiah Labiano and Tyson Griffin before eventually signing with the UFC in April of 2017 after amassing an impressive record of 8-2-0-1NC.

Since signing with the UFC he has since gone 6–3–1 NC while fighting some of the top contenders within both divisions such as Alan Jouban, Ryan LaFlare, Carlos Condit and Stephen Thompson just to name a few notable ones where he faced off against these tough challengers despite being undersized due to him being only 5’9″ tall compared to some fighters who were well over 6 feet tall which makes it all that much more impressive when considering how successful Daniel was able to become despite this size disadvantage that not many other smaller fighters have been able to overcome successfully like he did throughout his career so far inside the octagon!

Outside of competing professionally for MMA organizations such as Bellator & UFC respectively; Daniel also does charity work around San Diego County by helping out at local schools & community centers teaching youngsters about self defense & discipline through martial arts classes which continues showing everyone why he’s still considered one if not THE best welterweight prospect currently fighting today!
