2-3 of Gamboa's knockdowns have been illegit ( out of balance and elbows ) so he's actually been down around 3 times. Another factor is this: More aggression equals more risks and Rigo and Lara are not aggressive like Gamboa. And yes I agree with you in that Gamboa needs to stop the ****iness, keep his hands up and attack the body.
