Gonzaga's BJJ, is not going to be as much of a factor as people think. Remember Randy went the distance with Jacare in a BJJ (or sub. wrestling) match, so I don't think Gonzaga's BJJ is a trump card for him.
I think the only thing that Gonzaga has over Randy coming into this fight is youth.
GG has (probably) 30 pounds on Randy.....and imo that is probably going to be the deciding factor.
GG's great groundwork is more or less negated by Randy's great wrestling...though he(GG) probably still has an edge on him(randy).
Standup is hard to call....yes GG ko'd CC standing...but aside from that I haven't personally seen enough of it to call an advantage. Though obviously raw power goes to GG.
So imo really the deciding factors will be experience(which Randy clearly has the advantage in) and size which GG has the advantage in.
Hard fight to call...but I'm saying GG 3rd round TKO
