Jack Shore


Perfect record remains
April 10, 2021
Shore defeated Hunter Azure via split decision (30-27, 28-29, 30-27) at UFC on ABC 2 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Shore had to sweat out the "split decision" announcement from Bruce Buffer before emerging with the victory he deserved. In what was a back-and-forth fight, Shore had the advantage of both starting strong and finishing strong. While Azure attempted to do his damage on the feet, Shore leaned on his wrestling. Shore is better on the mat than in the stand-up, although he does have four career knockout victories on his resume. Azure was by far the best opponent Shore had faced to date, and it was nice to see the 26-year-old put forth a strong effort. Still undefeated as a pro, Shore is a legitimate prospect at 135 pounds.

Scheduled to fight April 10
February 14, 2021
Shore (13-0-0) will face Hunter Azure (9-1-0) at a UFC event on April 10, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports. An official venue or location for the event has yet to be announced.
Shore is coming off a year in which he was only able to fight once due to a series of cancellations revolving around travel issues. The 26-year-old has defeated all but one of his opponents via submission and will look to use that to his advantage against Azure in just under two months.
Won't be on UFC 255 card
November 11, 2020
Shore is no longer scheduled to compete at UFC 255 on Nov. 21, he disclosed via his personal Instagram account.
Shore was originally lined up to face Khalid Taha at UFC Vegas 13 on Nov. 7, but he was ultimately forced to withdraw due to visa issues. Those problems appear to have since been resolved, as the UFC had apparently planned on having the bantamweight prospect fight on its upcoming pay-per-view card. That will no longer be the case, but it doesn't appear there are any further immediate roadblocks to shore booking a fight in the near future.
Removed from Nov. 7 card
October 28, 2020
Shore will no longer fight at the UFC event scheduled for Nov. 7 after visa issues forced him to withdraw, MMAFighting.com reports.
Shore was initially scheduled to fight Khalid Taha in early November, but he'll have his next fight rescheduled after experiencing visa issues. Shore is now expected to face a new opponent at a UFC event scheduled for Nov. 21, while Taha will now take on Raoni Barcelos on the Nov. 7 card. The promotion still hasn't announced who Shore will face in his new matchup.
To welcome back Taha in November
September 28, 2020
Shore will take on Khalid Taha in a bantamweight matchup scheduled for Nov. 7 in Las Vegas, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
Shore has remained unbeaten through two UFC fights, most recently picking up a submission victory over Aaron Phillips in June to improve his pro record to 13-0. He'll take on a fighter in Taha coming off a long layoff due to suspension, as it will have been over a year since Taha's victory over Bruno Silva by the time the German takes the Octagon. Shore will enter this matchup with height and reach advantages, plus his striking and grappling marks are essentially superior across the board, albeit with a small sample size. Shore has accumulated seven takedowns and an astounding 15 advances through two UFC bouts, while Taha's takedown defense sits at a very average 63 percent. Look for Shore to enter as the betting favorite.
Wrestling leads to easy win
July 15, 2020
Shore defeated Aaron Phillips via submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 2:29 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
Entering as a massive -900 favorite, Shore recognized Phillips' weakness and quickly exploited it. He used his grappling to secure three successful takedowns. Shore secured 5:25 worth of control time in a fight that barely lasted seven minutes. It was the dominant showing many expected. The level of competition he was going up against must be taken into consideration here, but Shore passed this test with flying colors. Undefeated as a professional and still just 25 years of age, Shore is one of the bantamweight division's brightest prospects.
