In practice, you lose to get better.
Practice is where you try things that you don't know are possible to learn new things. Practice is not competitive, if you think it is you are doing it wrong.
Every fighter has their own intricacies and way of doing things, which is why you train with other people. Both GSP and Gunnar probably learned much from each other that day. To label a practice session as a win or a loss is wrong.
