It’s not that Mitch Gagnon isn’t a competent competitor. Quite the opposite, actually. However, he relies on the ground game without offering much else. Kimura should be able to handle whatever Gagnon throws his way on the mat while providing superior offense while standing or in the clinch. Kimura is unbeaten for a reason and that status isn’t likely to change on September 21.
Though there are few guarantees inside the cage, there are definitely situations involving stylistic or physical match-ups favoring one individual in particular to the point picking him/her to win is essentially a lock. Next weekend’s lineup for UFC 165 is no different with a few bouts ripe with the potential to be lopsided scraps. Included in the bunch are both the main event between Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson and co-headliner featuring Renan Barao-Eddie Wineland. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
