After debuting with a wino n Strikeforce, beating Luke Stewart on the judges round card decision, André Galvão should return to the American octagon on August. “They said I’ll be back on August, probably along with (Rafael) Feijão or (Ronaldo) Jacaré. I’m going through a learning phase”, tells the black belt, who wants to reach the top of his division. “I want to make sure my job is done and I’ll fight against whoever they tell me to, I want to fight until I get a chance to fight for the belt”, guarantees.

LAST MINUTE REPLACEMENT

Training in Rio de Janeiro, with Rogério Camões and Josuel Distak on X-Gym, André reveals he has been called by Strikeforce, last Thursday (10), to replace Evangelista Cyborg on a fight against Marius Zaromskis, a combat scheduled to next Wednesday (16), but he refused the proposal. “It’s too close, I wouldn’t have the time to get ready and to lose weight and I’m not going to be nobody’s fool… I could win, but I’d rather not take that risk”, said Galvão. According to some sources, the combat between Cyborg and Zaromskis was almost cancelled, but Chute Boxe’s athlete already is on the United States ready for the fight.
