Jorge Gurgel and Joe Duarte, all set for the Strikeforce Challengers 18.
Jorge Gurgel (14-7) is known for beating opponents with his striking attacks, Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills, and a guillotine choke victory. The MMA fighter will set his feet again in the cage after obtaining several wins over Conor Heun and Billy Vaughan, and losses to Billy Evangelista and K.J. Noons.
On the August 12 event, Jorge Gurgel will be facing a new Strikeforce fighter. Although much younger in age than him, Joe Duarte is yet ready to return on the ring after finishing Saad Awad with an armbar submission.
