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.
