Viscardi Andrade Guimarães (born March 8, 1984) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who most recently competed in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2006, he was also a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2, and has also formerly competed for Jungle Fight.
Mixed martial arts career
The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil
Andrade was a competitor on the second Brazilian season of The Ultimate Fighter. Andrade defeated Thiago Goncalves in the preliminary round, before being chosen as Team Werdum's fourth pick. Andrade fought Goncalves for the second time after he had been brought back as an injury replacement for Neilson Gomes, winning by TKO in the first round. Andrade then taunted Team Nogueira, causing friction between the teams.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Andrade was expected to face promotional newcomer Andreas Ståhl on July 26, 2014 at UFC on Fox 12. However, Andrade was forced from the bout due to injury and was replaced by promotional newcomer Gilbert Burns.
The bout with Andreas Ståhl has been rescheduled and is expected to take place on June 27, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 70. Subsequently, the bout was scrapped during the week leading up to the event as Ståhl was forced out of the bout with an injury.
Andrade faced Richard Walsh on March 20, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 85. Andrade won the fight via unanimous decision. On April 12, 2016, USADA notified the UFC that Andrade had failed an out of competition drug test conducted on March 7, 2016. Due a delay in testing the sample at the WADA-accredited lab in Rio de Janeiro, the fight vs. Walsh went forward.
In May 2017, Andrade was released from the company.
