“I came to help Anderson for his fight against Chris Weidman,” said Galvao. “He asked me to help him in his ground game, and he always helped me. I’m helping him and everything is going well… Since Ramon brought me in, I saw an improvement in Anderson’s ground game. He is a black belt, and just need a little polishing. He is a very talented guy who learns fast. In this aspect he is fine, and will be ready to fight Chris Weidman. We respect (Weidman) and will be ready for his weapons.”

Multiple time Mundial and ADCC Champion, Andre Galvao leaked to Brazilian Outlet, Portal do Vale Tudo, that he was brought in to help Anderson Silva train for Renzo Gracie blackbelt, Chris Weidman.
