UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva faces Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6, and a key element of Weidman's game is the Renzo Gracie black belt's submission ability. The best grappler in the world, Roger Gracie, said Weidman can tap anyone, even him.
To prepare, Silva, whose training is organized by Ramon Lemos, brought in multiple time Mundial and ADCC champion Andre Galvao.
Brazilian Portuguese language site Portal do Vale Tudo has the story:
"I came to help Anderson for his fight against Chris Weidman," said Galvao. "He asked me to help him in his ground game, and he always helped me. I'm helping him and everything is going well... Since Ramon brought me in, I saw an improvement in Anderson's ground game. He is a black belt, and just need a little polishing. He is a very talented guy who learns fast. In this aspect he is fine, and will be ready to fight Chris Weidman. We respect (Weidman) and will be ready for his weapons."
