Tyron Woodley VS Andre Galvao Rumored for For Oct 9th...


Tyron Woodley vs. Andre Galvao rumored for October 9th Strikeforce event

According to a handful of sources, including one of the fighters involved, it appears blue-chip welterweight Tyron Woodley will put his undefeated record on the line against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion Andre Galvao at Strikeforce‘s “Diaz vs. Noons II” event in San Jose on October 9th. Galvao himself broke the news of the potential pairing earlier today on his Twitter page.
However, Five Ounces of Pain contacted Strikeforce on Monday afternoon and was told the match-up could not be confirmed at this point in time. While the promotion’s position does not indicate the bout won’t eventually come together, the statement does mean the fight is not yet official.
If Woodley and Galvao do indeed face off on October 9th it should round out an already-stacked event with another entertaining scrap. A talented wrestler out of Missouri, Woodley is 8-0 in his career with finishing performances against seven of his opponents. Comparably, the 27-year old Galvao is 5-1 with his lone professional blemish coming by way of a split decision against Jason High in July 2009. He is 2-0 in Strikeforce and most recently won via TKO over Jorge Patino at this past August’s “Strikeforce – Houston” event.

Sweet! I know Galvao has been on a roll lately since coming over to Strikeforce and has been fun to watch but he's met his match this time.

This really is a WW showdown here.... two of the most promising up and comers in Strikeforces WW division....

I'm pretty sure the winner of Daley/Cyborg will probably get the shot at Nick Diaz...

I'd love to see the winner of this get the loser of Diaz/Noons..
