It wasn't even a fake cocky laugh by Gordon, you could tell it was a real, "wait are you serious right now" reaction by him. And Buchecha's reaction was like the, "I had to try something" haha.
Gordon put on a freaking show this weekend. The gap between him and everyone else is ridiculously large at the moment.
Not to harp on this but I heard an interview or insta post or something where he basically said his first match is what happens when someone tries to play jiu jitsu with him (back take within 45 seconds, submisison in about 1.5 mins) and the rest of the matches are what happens when guys try to stall on top and just play defense the entire time without opening up at all. I thought that was telling, and true. Props to Spriggs for trying SOMETHING with the backtake attempt off the HH entry but it ended with him on bottom and then back taken and strangles very shortly after.
Most of the time I would think whoever said that was just being cocky and bragging. But I honestly think he meant it. It looked like he was toying with everyone all weekend. He made countless people look like amateurs. I mean look how easy he dealt with Tonon, that was ridiculous.
