Accomplished grappler Andre Galvao will square off against fellow welterweight Luke Stewart at a March Strikeforce event, according to Tatame. The promotion’s only event currently slated for March is a Showtime-televised Strikeforce Challengers event on March 26 in Fresno, California.
Galvao (3-1), a seven-time PanAm gold medalist and 2009 ADCC runner-up, is coming off a July split decision loss to Jason High in the semifinals of DREAM’s welterweight grand prix, which snapped a three-fight win streak that included an April victory over John Alessio.
Stewart (6-2) has competed exclusively for Strikeforce over his eight-fight career which began in mid-2006 with five straight wins. He hasn’t fought since a November 2008 loss to veteran Joe Riggs, his second loss in his last three fights.
