Michael Bisping said this to mmajunkie.usatoday.com about the upcoming matchup between Pimblett and Gordon, “I think it might be a tougher matchup than what Paddy thinks. I think Paddy potentially is underestimating him. Now when I say underestimating him, I don’t mean that he’s taking it easy, and he’s kicking back in training, and he’s not pushing himself to the limit, and all the rest of it. Paddy has got eyes on being the champion….. The opponent is this journey, this wave that he wants to ride toward being a UFC champion, a legend in the sport, a Hall of Famer, and of course, retiring with millions and millions and millions of dollars in the bank – as I say, being a legend. He’s not underestimating or under training, should I say, but he might be mentally underestimating. He says he’s going to knock him out in the first round. I don’t know about that. I honestly don’t think he will knock him out inside the first round, but this is going to be a tough fight. Jared Gordon’s no walk in the park.”

UFC Picks

Despite what Bisping has said, this should be a dominating win for Pimblett. I don’t know that Gordon has shown enough to give Pimblett a tough fight. Pimblett definitely has title aspirations and he can’t afford to be taking any fight lightly and I don’t think he is overlooking Gordon. I think Pimblett has more ways to win than does Gordon and while the price is about 2-1, it seems reasonable. I don’t really see a path to victory for Gordon, as Pimblett is the better fighter. I will lay the price and take Pimblett to get the win.
