Galvão: ‘Weidman’s Jiu-Jitsu is no threat to Anderson’

Graciemag Newsroom
June 27, 2013

Another renowned athlete joined the ranks of Anderson Silva’s camp this month. André Galvão, a two-time world Jiu-Jitsu champion, arrives with the job of honing the Spider’s ground game for his bout opposite Chris Weidman on July 6 – the main event of UFC 162 in Vegas.

Experienced precisely in defending against Weidman’s main weapon, takedowns, Galvão encountered Weidman in competition back at the 2009 ADCC. As dangerous as Weidman’s takedowns and ground work are, Galvão believes the undefeated Weidman doesn’t possess enough weapons to surprise Anderson.

“Chris is a strong man and a good wrestler, and he likes doing the hand triangle by passing guard to the right side. I don’t think he’s going to surprise Anderson on the ground,” Galvão told Combate.com. “Unless something unexpected happens, like a hand getting through, because a fight’s a fight … But what we’re telling Anderson to do is be calm, for I believe Weidman doesn’t have much up his sleeve to try and take the belt. I think his only resource is the ground, but the rounds are five minutes long, which is not a lot of time to exert one’s technique over Anderson, who is himself a Jiu-Jitsu black-belt.”

Galvão went on to stress Silva’s calmness when he’s on the bottom, something that may turn out to be crucial.

“I think if he falls inside the guard, Anderson has very long legs, as well as a different positioning, a different vision. We learn a lot from Anderson, too – he’s a very studious guy. If the [Weidman] passes and mounts, it’s going to be just like what we’ve already seen in some other fights. Anderson is very calm. He can get his mind ready for every possible fight situation. I believe Anderson’s in great shape and will be bringing the belt home to Brazil once more.”

What about you? Could Anderson Silva be surprised by Weidman’s ground game? Check out the card for UFC 162 below and tell us how you feel.

that's funny galvao, weidman as a rookie put you through some trouble and nearly crushed your neck in a darce, but I suppose national and team mate bias is clouding his judgement

Overrated performance.

Galvao really wasn't in much trouble.

The way people constantly refer to this fight just shows how little most people know about competetive jiu-jitsu...I don't think Weidman even scored a single point and yet people acted like it was some Godly performance just because he didn't get tapped and tried for some subs that were nowhere near close.

Yes i'm sure the gurgling sound of galvao in the darce was just his audition for a new torture film, I mean a rookie handling his own against one of the best in the world isn't good or impressive at all. Next you will tell me anderson has better bjj than galvao too and weidman as well.

Well I don't know anything about your jiu jitsu background or knowledge but I recall a guy who no know even knew taking Andre down multiple times and also coming closer to submitting galvao than Andre ever got to Weidman. Andre had difficulty sweeping and getting position. Andre defended well and prevented passing for pretty much the whole fight until he got a sweep off Chris getting over anxious. Then Chris had to do stupid things because he was down on a running clock and Andre still never got close to a finish.

Also that darce was never fully synched in and locked but it was damn close a few times.

Why do you keep calling him a rookie? It isn't like he went from playing baseball to MMA. He went from competitive grappling to another form of competitive grappling.

Elite wrestling and elite BJJ are night and day, they couldn't be anymore different to eachother at that level. Hell people who have been training BJJ strictly for years get swallowed up by galvao even with size advantages. Judo is closer to wrestling than BJJ.
