If you didn’t know about it...now you you know it.

7 fights 5-2-0 in 2.5 years. Between 2008-2011 I did MMA. Yes. Lots of bjj fighters was happy about that during those years. They had the chance to win my world titles.

I didn’t fight worlds 2009-2012. Yeah! They all super happy about it. I could win couple more world titles in bjj. Haha!

Back in the day I had no wrestling and no ADCC World Titles. My no gi game is different now.

His last tournament was in 2017 at 195lbs but he was at least 20lbs bigger in his 2019 super fight with Felipe Pena at the open weight adcc match.

Thanks. I thought he would’ve been too big for 170. He is FUCKING HUGE.

He definitely will not be fighting in the UFC 

 

hes probably the most egregious PED abuser  among elites in BJJ history. He’s likely 100 lbs heavier than he was at like 18-19 having never gotten over 10–12% bf in his life.

That would be pretty great.

 

One FC needs to make that fight happen.

He’s not dangerous with submissions the way Tonon is or Roger was but Andre’s wrestling is top of the food chain now. It was mostly non existent in his strikeforce days.

Galvao wants no part of Gordon Ryan in grappling, especially sub-only.

He will have to go fight in Japan where the juice is loose.

I'd like to see him fight Gordon Ryan in MMA though.

Mma he’d be at a clear advantage. Gordon would be relegated to buttscooting.

Needs an excuse so he can avoid losing to Gordon Ryan at the next ADCC.

Taking souls? He and Pena had a Greco stallfest. The superfight is by far the worst aspect of adcc. Just have the brackets and have the best guys enter their weight >

I may be crazy, but avoiding Gordon in grappling may be what’s driving his mma return.

I called this the day after Gordon won the last absolute. Andre will do anything to avoid Gordon. Gordon won double gold and looked disappointed that he didn’t submit every single person. Andre barely won his super fight, shit his pants flexing and then crowd surfed.

I hope he has better cardio this time around. He seemed to get gassed pretty quickly in the ring before.
