Finishes Mark Madsen at MSG
LightweightUFC
November 11, 2023
Gordon defeated Mark Madsen via TKO (strikes) at 4:42 of Round 1 at UFC 295 on Saturday in New York City.
ANALYSIS
It's a huge win for Gordon in his native New York. When we last saw Jared, he and Bobby Green were fighting to a no-contest this past April following an accidental clash of heads. He was then scheduled to face Jim Miller in June before that fight fell apart. Gordon finally got back in the Octagon here and took full advantage of the opportunity. Both men were landing at a similar rate in what was primarily a clinch battle before Gordon dropped Madsen late in Round 1 with an elbow and right hand. Referee Marc Goddard was stepping in moments later. Gordon improves to 8-5 (1NC) in his first 14 UFC bouts.

Gordon and Bobby Green fought to a no-contest at 4:35 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This was nearly a disaster for Gordon before common sense prevailed. He was the victim of an accidental clash of heads between the two men late in Round 1, which eventually led to what seemed to be a Green knockout win. Referee Keith Peterson, who had stopped the fight, wisely had the replay officials check it out, changing the result to a no-contest. Don't be surprised if the UFC tries to re-book these two ASAP.

Gordon agreed to fight Bobby Green at UFC's April 22 event, Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of USA Today report.
ANALYSIS
Gordon is coming off a loss to Paddy Pimblett in December, though the unanimous decision handed down by the judges was questionable, at best. Green has lost his past two bouts, with his most recent loss coming at the hands of Drew Dober last month.
