Santos vs Gordon Prediction

UFC 278 Santos-Gordon prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Jared Gordon (84%)
Method of Victory: Decision (73%)

Jared Gordon has his eyes set on a bounce-back win here after submitting to Grant Dawson in his last outing. Fortunately, Gordon will be in a good position to win as long as the fighters stay on their feet. After all, "Flash" averages almost three more significant strikes per minute than his opponent.

Leo Santos has decisively lost back-to-back fights, losing one by KO and the other via submission. Though he has the size advantage here, it's hard to back the 42-year-old. His best days appear to be behind him, which bodes well for the much younger Gordon.

Though Tapology advocates for a decisionvictory, I'm taking Gordon by KO/TKO at +240.
