BIO:

Undefeated for four years in the professional circuit, Craig Marduk was once a respected and feared Vale Tudo fighter. However, Craig is expelled from the professional ranks after being linked to a minor scandal. Bitter against his peers and society, Craig's wrath consumed his soul. One day, Craig started a bar brawl in Arizona and killed an opponent during the fight. Convicted for second-degree manslaughter, Craig was sentenced to 10 years in the state penitentiary. Two years later, Craig was mysteriously released from prison. Some anonymous "benefactor" had apparently paid off numerous judiciaries to arrange for Craig's release. An envelope is delivered to Craig shortly after his release. Craig opens the envelope to find a plane ticket and an article about The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.

Craig Marduk fought a grueling battle with the wrestler King in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, victory and defeat eluded both fighters, and in defeat, they found friendship. While returning to the waiting room, Craig was attacked. Catching only a glimpse of the attackers back as he fled, Craig could have sworn he looked exactly like the man he was convicted of killing, Armor King. Determined to learn the assailant's true identity, Craig set out with his sworn friend, King, to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.

The fighting game world lacked a solid Vale Tudo/MMA style fighter, until Marduk came along. Marduk does his martial art a lot of justice with his vicious moves, effective grappling techniques, and sheer power (what a monster)! His moves hit hard and he's a straight-forward fighter with not much on his mind besides beating your face in. What more could you want out of a "big guy" design? >:)

For me, he's always been that guy in Tekken that I love to hate. Since he is so damn big, he's definitely fun to fight against. Don't let his size intimidate you too much, though... and don't forget you can easily break out of his tackle. ;) I'll also go on to say that tackling and ground fighting in general is a bit overrated anyway, thanks to that "sport" known as UFC. Oooooh... yeah I said it. I'm not saying it's not effective, just overrated. ;) There's no rules on the street biatch!
