Malcolm Gordon To Make UFC Debut, Stepping In To Facing Alexsander Doskalchuk on July 18th

Malcolm Gordon will get his first UFC assignment on July 18th, stepping in for Tagir Ulanbekov in a matchup against Alexsander Doskalchuk. First reported by Aaron Bronsteter of TSN, the matchup joins the card scheduled to happen at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Gordon, a Canadian fighter, currently has a four-fight winning streak that he obtained in Canadian MMA promotion TKO. His UFC fight will be somewhat of a layoff, as he last competed in April of 2019.
