    Jordan hasn't competed since he fought Thiago Alves back in January where he suffered a 2nd round KO loss due to body kick. That was 7 months ago and still no scheduled fight for the kid. Did he suffer broken ribs or internal damage from the kick? He wasn't taking much damage at all until the one body kick landed. I think the kid is very underrated and has the tools to hang with many top 15s. I think a matchup with Thatch would be amazing.

    I thought he would be on the Sasketchewan card.

    He's doing the Q&A for the next fight night card so we'll probably find out then

    dudes be fighting for the title at that age these days. Let's not forget just because Jordan is 25 that he hasn't had nearly 40 fights already.

    Many fighters don't hit their prime until late 20's/early 30's. Ex: Weidman, Lawler, Rockhold, Hendricks, Velasquez. Rory will win the the title within the next 10 years.

    He looked outstanding until he got cocky and Alves flattened him with the body kick. He is putting his game together quite well. He'll be back.

    That fight makes sense, both coming off losses, both in the upper echelon of unranked WWs. Great fight to make.

    Him and Mighty Mouse hosted a UFC seminar/[email protected]/viewing party for UFC 188 in Lethbridge back in June and he said he had been focussing more on coaching lately

    a lot of people assume that if a fighter starts young he will have a longer career. its miles, not years. hes gotta have a lot of wear and tear across 39 fights and 39 fight camps, even though hes only 25, he doesnt necessarily have another 10 years in his career

    I think his dad grounded him after his last loss.

    Had high hopes for him and I loved how he dispatched Dan Miller. Hopefully he'll get in the octagon soon and keep his emotions in check.
