Gordon vs Hadley Prediction

Life hasn't been kind to Malcolm Gordon since 2020. Although his 2-3 record over that span isn't the worst, he was finished in each of the three losses — twice by submission and once by KO. And while Gordon picked up two victories over that stretch, they came against a pair of unimpressive opponents in Francisco Figueiredo and Denys Bondar.

Standing in Gordon's way is Jake Hadley, who's coming off a second-round submission win over Carlos Candelario. The victory is even more impressive considering how it came off the heels of Hadley's first-ever loss. Now, he gets to have the biggest fight of his career in his home country, meaning he'll do everything he can to win.

Hadley is a submission expert, which has been Gordon's downfall lately. Look for the hometown hero to make his opponent snap or tap.

Winner: Jake Hadley

Gordon vs Hadley Best Bet

I'm going with Hadley winning by submission as the best bet for this fight. Five of his previous nine victories have come by submission and now he gets to face Gordon, who's been submitted twice in less than three years. Even worse news for Gordon is the fact that Hadley boasts an impressive triangle chokehold, which is a move that's submitted the former before.

Look for Hadley to win this one via submission without an issue.

Bet: Jake Hadley by Submission (+195)
