Demian Maia - sufferer of "Gurgelism"

Following his decision loss to Chris Weidman at UFC on FOX: Evan vs. Davis, it has been reported that Demian Maia has been diagnosed with gurgelism.

Gurgelism - A condition where a "world class brazilian jiu jitsu artist" will choose not to use their submission skills in a fight.

Instead they will attempt to win the fight with strikes, under the impression that they are a "high-level striker".

There is no known treatment for this condition.
