Andre Gusmao (Finally) Signs with UFC

45838-thumb_medium

 

Some folks may remember several months back when rumors had Andre Gusmao signing with UFC to face David Heath. The rumors ultimately wound up being false, but it appears that Gusmao signing with UFC was only a matter of time. MMA Weekly is repoting that Gusmao, a former IFL fighter on Renzo Gracie's New York Pitbulls, will debut at UFC 87 on August 9.

After almost signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship earlier this year, it now appears capoeira and jiu-jitsu expert Andre Gusmao will finally make his debut for the promotion in August at UFC 87, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources inside Gusmao’s camp.

...

At this time no opponent has been named for Gusmao in his debut, but more fights for the Minnesota card are expected soon.

Gusmao brings an undefeated 5-0-0 record into the UFC, with all but one victories coming by TKO or submission. His addition to the UFC's roster brings yet another talented Light Heavyweight to an already stacked division.
