Wins clear three-round decision
FeatherweightUFC
February 20, 2021
Gordon won a unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) against Danny Chavez at UFC Vegas 19 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Gordon's pressure, boxing, low kicks and grappling were vital difference makers in his victory. Once Gordon was able to ground Chavez, he established firm top control that helped him win Rounds 2 and 3. Gordon's cardio and pace have been two big reasons for previous UFC victories, just like his performance against Chavez. While the win was strong, it comes with a bit of an asterisk given the fact Gordon missed weight by four pounds Friday.

Fight still on after weight miss
FeatherweightUFC
February 19, 2021
Gordon's scheduled featherweight matchup against Danny Chavez will proceed as planned despite Gordon missing weight by four pounds Friday morning, John Morgan of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gordon will have to forfeit 30 percent of his fight purse to his opponent, but he'll still get a chance to compete at UFC Vegas 19 on Saturday. He sits as roughly a (+120) underdog for the matchup as of Friday morning.
Four pounds overweight
FeatherweightUFC
February 19, 2021
Gordon weighed in at 150 pounds Friday, four pounds over the featherweight limit for a non-tile fight.
ANALYSIS
Gordon has had a relatively clean recent history on the scales, though he has missed weight before when he checked in at 149 pounds for his debut matchup against Michel Quinones back in the summer of 2017. That followed up a previous weight cut attempt that ended in hospitalization, but he's competed largely without issue in the six fights that followed. It's unclear if this fight will be allowed to move forward as planned, but any compromise will result in Gordon surrendering a large chunk of his fight purse. He was already considered an underdog for this matchup, checking in at approximately (+120) as of Friday morning.
Paired against Danny Chavez
FeatherweightUFC
November 21, 2020
Gordon will take on Danny Chavez in a featherweight matchup on Feb. 20, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Gordon won his first two fights as a UFC fighter before going on to lose three of his next five. He's at least coming off a win in his most recent match, however, as he beat Chris Fishgold by unanimous decision in July. His opponent, Chavez, has fought just once with the promotion, defeating T.J. Brown by unanimous decision in August.
Easy win against heavy opponent
FeatherweightUFC
July 15, 2020
Gordon defeated Chris Fishgold via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
It was a dominant effort from Gordon without his regular corner man by his side. Instead, UFC lightweight contender and ESPN commentator Paul Felder left the broadcast booth for the bout in order to corner his buddy. It worked out for all parties involved. Gordon racked up three successful takedowns en route to 10:25 worth of control time. It's disappointing he didn't get the stoppage, but this was about as lopsided a unanimous decision as you will ever see. The fact Gordon walked about with 20 percent of Fishgold's purse after the later missed weight on Tuesday is just icing on the cake. The victory improves Gordon's record with the UFC to 4-3.
Fight stays intact
FeatherweightUFC
July 14, 2020
Gordon will still fight Chris Fishgold at UFC Fight Island on Wednesday despite Fishgold missing weight by three pounds, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gordon is already dealing with adversity coming into this bout, as his regular corner was unable to make the trip to Abu Dhabi due to COVID-19 precautions. Instead, he'll have Paul Felder step away from the commentator booth to corner him for this matchup. He'll also be facing an opponent who weighed in three pounds over the featherweight limit for a non-title fight, but he'll pick up 20 percent of Fishgold's purse as a result. Despite a couple of tough breaks, Gordon remains a betting favorite of approximately (-145) as of Tuesday morning.
