At 34 years old, the match with the Baddy feels like Gordon’s late opportunity to take that next step in his career. This is Gordon’s fourth fight of his career in Nevada.

Gordon has the wrestling and ground control to make this a close-quarter battle. Unfortunately, he lacks the finishing ability to really put a scare into Pimblett. This seems to be a bout where Pimblett will pull the strings in the later rounds of the match. The Baddy will find an opening where he can put the fight away. Pimblett is just too active and has a much higher finish rate to where he’s the more trustworthy guy in this situation. Pimblett will win this match.
