André Luis Leite Galvão (Portuguese pronunciation: [ɐ̃ˈdɾɛ ɡaɫˈvɐ̃w̃]; born September 9, 1982) is a Brazilian grappler and professional mixed martial artist. He has won the Brazilian National Championship, World Jiu-Jitsu Championship and Pan American Championships multiple times and has also taken third place in the 2007 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship at both -77 kg and openweight. He made his mixed martial arts debut in 2008, and in 2009 he entered DREAM's 2009 Welterweight Tournament. Since completing the tournament, he has fought in Strikeforce.[18] Galvão was a competitor in the 2009 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship in Barcelona, Spain where he placed second in the -88 kg class. More recently, Galvao had a standout performance in 2011, first by winning the Ultimate Absolute NYC, then at the 2011 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship where he captured gold in both the -88 kg and absolute weight classes defeating Rousimar Palhares and Pablo Popovitch, in each respective finals.

Andre Galvao is a 2nd degree black belt student under BJJ legend Fernando "Tererê" Augusto and now heads the Atos Jiu-Jitsu team in the United States. He is the author of the martial arts book, Drill to Win: One Year to Better Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Victory Belt Publishing, 2010). It focuses on learning the transitional skills of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, submission wrestling, and MMA through proper diet, calisthenics, and technical drills.
