Marcus Aurélio Martins (born August 18, 1974) is a Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter who formerly fought for the PRIDE Fighting Championship and for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He currently fights as a lightweight. Aurelio fights primarily using Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

He began his career in promotions such as ZST and HOOKnSHOOT, earning notable submission victories against Remigijus Morkevicius and Rich Clementi. Aurelio then came to PRIDE Bushido, where he defeated PRIDE Lightweight Champion Takanori Gomi with an arm triangle in a non title fight. A rematch for the title was scheduled six months later, which Gomi won by split decision.

On June 24, 2007, Aurelio announced his signing with the UFC. He made his debut at UFC 74, losing to Clay Guida by split decision. He was defeated by Evan Dunham on August 29, 2009 at UFC 102. He replaced Matt Veach who sustained a back injury while training.

After his defeat at the hands of Evan Dunham at UFC 102, Aurelio was released from the organization, along with other UFC veterans, Hermes Franca, Chris Wilson, and Justin McCully.
