Return of Marcelo Garcia likely in DREAM GP

World champion grappler Marcelo Garcia will likely return to MMA with an entry in the DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix, reports Portal das Lutas.

Garcia, who won three straight ADCC gold medals from 2003-2007, trains with the American Top Team to improve his standup. His coach Ricardo Liborio tells Portal das Lutas "there's a good chance. Nothing's in ink yet, but there really is a good chance Marcelo will be in the GP."

In Garcia's lone MMA fight, he lost via TKO due to a cut against Dae Won Kim at "K-1 HERO's in Korea" in October 2007.

If Garcia signs to fight in the DREAM tournament, he'll debut at DREAM.8 on April 5.

The ADCC will take place this year and if his schedule permits, Garcia will shoot for a fourth straight under 77 kg division title.
