ANALYSIS:

This is a 10* on GORDON

The UFC’s run at “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi continues with Fight Night 172 on Wednesday, July 15th. The entire fight card can be viewed on ESPN+ with this particular matchup taking place on the “main show.” It’s a featherweight bout (145 lbs), scheduled for three rounds, between Jared Gordon (15-4-1) and Chris Fishgold (18-3-1). Our money is on the former as despite a 3-3 record in his previous six fights, Gordon is someone known for landing lots of strikes. While he was KO’d in his last fight (November 2019 by Charles Oliveira), Fishgold is a far better matchup here for Gordon, who will have the striking advantage and has adequate takedown defense. Fishgold has dropped two of three fights since coming to the UFC and it’s thought his future with the promotion will be in jeopardy with yet another loss. Unlike Gordon, Fishgold prefers to take the fight to the ground. Unfortunately for him, we don’t see that happening here. The fact Fishgold has been stopped twice doesn’t exactly inspire a ton of confidence on his end. 10* on GORDON
