Andre Galvao Gives Details About His Return to MMA
Nov 16, 2021
Andre Galvao has signed an two-year, six-fight MMA contract with ONE Championship, and he anticipates fighting as soon as February next year.
The ADCC superfight champion, 39, fought seven times between 2008 and 2010 and is 5-2 in MMA.
Galvao explained his desire to return to MMA: "I always had a dream to get a belt in MMA. A lot of people don't know I fought MMA before. My no-gi jiu-jitsu wasn't like I have nowadays. I'm a better wrestler, and jiu-jitsu has evolved so much. I felt like I will showcase my jiu-jitsu in MMA."
His last fight was a TKO loss to Tyrone Woodley in 2010. Of Galvao's five wins, three were via submission and one via TKO.
