Jared Gordon (19-6) has been going through a series of flickering highs and lows; first, he faced a controversial loss against Paddy Pimblett and then got knocked out by Jared Gordon; however, the gods of fortune pulled him out of the jaws of defeat as the judges scored that match a no contest due to an accidental head clash.
And then he got removed from his fight against Jim Miller that was scheduled to take place on the 3rd of June because of publicly disclosing that he suffered mild concussion weeks or days before the fight. However, he is gradually recovering from the physical and mental blows and looks forward to making his return soon.
Jared Gordon’s thoughts on his return
Jared Gordon spoke about his recent matches and expressively shared his frustration. On a brighter note, he is fine now and is waiting to hear about his comeback fight. "It’s been a really weird time for me, and it’s all things that are out of my control,” Gordon said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“I thought I clearly won the Paddy fight, I was beating Bobby Green, then I got head-butted so no contest. “Then I was supposed to fight Jim Miller, and I said some things in an interview that led me to get pulled off the card.
I’m really bitter over it all. Unfortunately, I can’t shake it, to be honest, and I think getting back in the win column is the only way I’ll feel better. I don’t know what’s going on. I’m doing everything right, and I’m winning, but I’m still losing somehow”.
Gordon further said: “I’ve been cleared by the neurologist, the UFC knows. So, I’m good to go, and I’m training. I’m in great shape, I just don’t know what’s going to come next and how long it’s going to be.
I just started sparring again since the Bobby Green fight. Last week is my first week back to sparring, but my head feels good, my body feels great. I felt good in sparring, and I’m just waiting to hear what’s next”.
