“It won’t be easy… He has evolved and that’s natural. If you fight MMA, you should know jiu-jitsu. That’s a fact. That’s why he trains jiu-jitsu like every other MMA fighter. Evolution is a consequence of training, and he has evolved a lot. I will train and fight by the rules, going for the submission on top or from the bottom. Who knows, maybe he’ll pull guard. I have to be ready for every situation. If people think that (I will beat him up easily), I’m happy to hear that. But I see him as every other opponent. I must respect him and be ready for every situation in the fight to be able to win. He has competed at the highest level because he’s a world-class wrestler, and in my opinion that’s grappling. He’s not a fool on the ground.”
In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, Andre Galvao discussed his upcoming Metamoris 4 headliner against Chael P. Sonnen.
