Potentially Winning Pick 

This matchup will present a handful of opportunities to make some great predictions. For the winner, there are a few things to look at when comparing these two. 

Fishgold is excellent on the ground and is very aggressive at takedowns. However, he appears to not defend extremely well and does not rely on his striking. 

Gordon has a solid resume here and appears very sound all the way around. He also is decent at the ground game but striking shows his better side. 

Overall, Gordon is more appealing here. Is his takedown defense was very low, I could see Fishgold taking this one early but I believe Gordon will be able to land great significant strikes.
