Marcus Phelan Biography

Marcus Phelan was born on May 12, 1992, in Dublin, Ireland, growing up in Ranelagh, a small town located on the outskirts of the country’s capital.

While growing up, Phelan was a big fan of sports, playing football (soccer) and rugby (union rules) from the ages of 7 to 16, while competing in local leagues and cups. During his teens, however, Marcus became a big fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) through his brother, having Demian Maia in common as their favorite athlete. This path would lead him to jiu-jitsu.

The love for grappling came from a common gathering between Marcus’ older brother and a few of his friends, who would have friendly matches at the Phelan house, where they tried to apply a few of the jiu-jitsu moves they observed in the cage fights they followed. During one of these sessions, Marcus joined the group and had a lot of fun, a sentiment that drove Marcus and his brother to book a class at a local BJJ gym.

The Phelans very first jiu-jitsu class was taught by none other than Darragh O’Conaill, one of Ireland’s grappling pioneers at the highest level in the sport and a coach who followed Marcus’ path from white to black belt. A rank he earned on August 9, 2019.
