After dropping back-to-back battles with Billy Evangelista and K.J. Noons, Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Jorge Gurgel got back on the winning track on Saturday night. He submitted last-minute replacement Billy Vaughn in just 44 seconds.
The victory upped Gurgel’s Strikeforce totals to an even 2-2, ending a two-fight skid. His new wife, Zoila Frausto, also fought and won on Saturday night.
Gurgel spoke to the media about his fight, the criticism he often receives, and the circumstances surrounding he and his wife fighting on the same night.
