Andre Galvao In DREAM GP?!

In an exclusive interview with Tatame, Andre Galvao reveals that it is 90% certain that he will participate in the DREAM Welterweight GP which starts in April. Galvao won gold in the Medium Heavyweight division and bronze in the Absolute divison in the BJJ Worlds 2008. He made his MMA debut last year against veteran Jeremiah Metcalf. Galvao won via armbar in the second round after a tough fight. He then defeated Mikey Gomez, again via armbar, in December of 2008.

    Interested in seeing who DREAM can pool together for the welterweight tournament. So far it seems like Sakurai, K-Taro (maybe), Aoki (maybe), and the winner of the DEEP championship match.

    It’s a bummer that Diaz won’t be around now. It seems like welterweight is a thin devision.

    I thought Nick’s contract allowed him to fight in Japan. Is he doing another show at the same time?

    Anybody care to venture who might drop from middleweight to fight in the WW GP?

    Diaz is fighting Frank Shamrock at an April Strikeforce event.

    I’d like to see Zelg Galesic cut to welterweight…I think he could make it.

    Paul Gauthier, Marcello Garcia, Andre Galvao, Hayato Sakurai, Shinya Aoki, Monma/Ikemoto, Hironaka, hopefully Diaz or Shields are some names which I wouldn’t be surprised to see participate.
