Chris Liguori faces his toughest test yet on Friday night, as the lightweight ROC champ will take on Marcus Aurelio in the World Cagefighting Alliance's main event. Who's Marcus Aurelio? He's the guy who put Takanori Gomi away with a choke, a guy who's racked up wins over the likes of Masakazu Imanari and Rich Clementi and most recently has been fighting in the UFC. Clearly, based on record alone, Liguori will have his hands full. But also clear is that win or lose, Liguori will still have smoking hot girlfriends to go back to. Can the Team Ricardo Almeida warrior handle the American Top Team black belt's aggressive submission game? Will the longtime East Coast star be able to impose his will before Aurelio forces him to tap out? Does it matter? If Liguori has a gorgeous female waiting in the wings, like that stunner who cheered him on at the Mixed Fighting Championships or that beauty seen with him at Reality Fighting, then it seems to me there will be only one true winner on Friday. And he ain't Brazilian.
