A lightweight matchup between Joe Solecki and Jared Gordon has been booked for a new UFC October 2nd event, as first reported by Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.
The fight is the first to be booked for that date. The location of the show is not known at the moment.
Solecki will look to continue his undefeated run in the UFC. He has scored a trio of victories since joining the roster in 2019. His last win was in April against veteran Jim Miller, who was defeated via unanimous decision.
Gordon is being paired against Solecki after building up momentum recently. After losing three of four appearances from 2018 and 2019, Gordon has since gone on a two-fight win streak from 2020 and one. His last victory came earlier this year against Danny Chavez, who he beat via unanimous decision.
Gordon’s last loss was in 2019 against now-UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira.
