Gurgel 3-4 UFC
Sakara 4-4 UFC
That Wanderlai comparison is bs and u know it, he's 1-1 for the time that matters
You could make the arguement that guys like Sakara do actually try and fight correctly, which gurgel's record may not be stellar, im saying he got cut for the reason he fights. If he's so good on the ground, then why risk it and not try to take it to the ground. Hence, it can be argued that he is not taking the fight game seriously enough.
Its the same as Lutter in a sense, Lutter may've lost to the number 1 and 2 MW in a row respectively, which people have no problem with, as people didnt expect him 2 win. But the fact that he didnt make weight in the A silva fight and gassed to the point where he couldn't do anything in the Franklin fight were reasons enough to get the chop.
You don't take the fight game seriously enough, you'll receive the chop
