UFC veteran Jorge Gurgel is set to headline Strikeforce Challengers 18 on Aug. 12 in Las Vegas when he steps in the cage with Joe Duarte.
It’s a big opportunity for Gurgel, who submitted Billy Vaughn in just 44 seconds back in March following back-to-back losses.
He has a penchant for exciting fights, but Gurgel often times leaves himself exposed in the process, leading to losses that he might have otherwise won. At Strikeforce Challengers 18, he’s hopeful that he can stay within himself and fight not only how he wants – to excite the fans – but also in a fashion that keeps him on the winning track.
