He took on Chris Fishgold on Fight Island back in July and earnt another unanimous decision.
Danny Chavez (11-3) is on a four-fight winning streak after his successful UFC debut in August.

JARED GORDON VS DANNY CHAVEZ PREDICTION
This is a great test for both fighters with Chavez testing himself against an experienced UFC fighter and Gordon testing his chin against a featherweight with knockout power.
Chavez is a nasty striker with power in his hands and feet. Expect him to open up with leg kicks while looking for an opening to find the chin. They match-up similarly physically and Gordon will be more confident in his own power at 145 lbs.
This has the makings of a war on the feet and Gordon has the experience, but Chavez has the speed and power to hurt Gordon, seal the rounds, and if even land a knockout.
