Galvao Looks for Fourth Win at DREAM 10

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legend Andre Galvao (3-0 MMA) will return to the ring for DREAM 10 in Saitama, no doubt hunting for his fourth straight MMA submission. On July 20th, the Brazilian will step in against Jason High (7-1 MMA) as High looks to post another solid win. High posted the second fastest win in the opening round of the DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix, choking out Japanese veteran Yuya Sharai (15-8 MMA) in 59 seconds (the fastest win was Hayato Sakurai’s shocking 27 second TKO of tournament favorite Shinya Aoki).

Galvao is certainly a serious contender to take the whole tournament, and is seen by those who are familiar with his work in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu not simply as a dark horse, but as an arguable favorite, who is capable of submitting any of the fighters still active in the bracket. His willingness to learn and training with the best in the sport, including UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (24-4 MMA, 9-0 UFC, #1 IWMMAR) and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (10-2-0-1 MMA), has improved his position in the MMA world in a lot of minds.

Really, though, Galvao is a relative unknown to many fans, especially those who don’t watch Japanese MMA and/or follow jiu-jitsu, which are really the only ways one might have come into contact with the impressive game of submission machine that Galvao has been.

Dude looked like a man amongst boys. He is a physical twin of Wanderlei Silva...just a beatdown machine. He is going to **** his next two opponents, like bad ****.

Is there a good ****?

Haha, but I agree. The dude is a monster. He killed Alessio in what should have been one of the toughest fights of the tournament for him. He's a scary dude, and his wrestling is good enough that anyone who's fighting him has to watch the shot.

Exclamation Sakurai

I still think Sakurai is going to win! And if Strikeforce is willing to share fighters the winner regardless will probably face him at some point!
