André Galvão receives support from Brazilian MMA stars

VIDEO: André Galvão receives support from Brazilian MMA stars

Ahead of his submission grappling bout against ONE Championship two-division champion Reinier de Ridder this weekend, André Galvão received well-wishes from several notable Brazilian mixed martial artists.

Galvão, a 4th degree black belt, is a nine-time medalist for ADCC grappling championships and widely considered one of the best grapplers to ever compete. He signed multi-fight contract with ONE Championship late last year.

Just days before ONE’s 10-year-anniversary fight card dubbed “ONE X,” Galvão posted a video where he received support from UFC light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira, Bellator MMA women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg, former ONE Championship bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes, former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, Demian Maia, and Mackenzie Dern.
