Dawson is coming off of a draw, but his ability to get early finishes is impressive. In his seven fights prior to the draw, Dawson had two knockout wins, four wins by submission and two that ended in a unanimous decision. Both he and Gordon are on a good streak so this one should be close. Look for Dawson to pull out the win and end this one early.
