Su Mudaerji will enter this fight as a favorite. He has 12 wins and 4 losses in the bag. ‘The Tibetan Eagle’ crushes his opponents with extreme ground and pound and has 100% takedown accuracy. He is coming off a win via UD against Andre Soukhamthath. He can control the octagon once he takes his opponents to the mat.

The fighter has claimed an astounding 83% of his wins via TKO. Furthermore, he is a ferocious grappler coupled with amazing striking to counter his opponents. In the UFC, he has landed 5.02 strikes on an average in a minute.

The southpaw is 5’8” tall and has a massive reach of 72”. He takes his opponents to the canvas and terrifies them with his solid ground and pound abilities. But, all his defeats have come via submission which is his opponent’s strength.

The Canadian Malcolm Gordon also holds a 12-4 pro-MMA record. Out of his 12 wins, he has finished 6 opponents via submission and 4 via T/KO. ‘X’ made his UFC debut in a losing effort on Fight Island and will be hungry for his first promotional win.

He is an intimidating fighter who looks to exploit his opponent’s weakness and punishes them. He has a switch stance but will have to work hard to nullify a reach disadvantage. Malcolm has 18% striking accuracy in the UFC, but is yet to unleash his best self in the promotion.

We can expect Mudaerji to land a takedown with precision, as he has a 100% TD rate in the UFC. He will have the advantage in the striking game too and can maintain distance with a reach advantage. It will be smart for him to keep the fight on the feet.

Prediction: Su Mudaerji via decision.
