Jared Gordon made an impression on UFC President Dana White, and now “Flash” will get his shot in the big time.
The UFC announced today that Gordon will make his promotional debut at UFC 211 when he faces Michel Quinones.
UFC 211 takes place May 13 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Gordon, who will enter the octagon riding a three-fight win streak, was featured on “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight” and impressed the UFC boss with a decision win over Bill Algeo. Gordon, 28, has finished seven of his 13 bouts, with his only loss coming in 2015 as the result of a doctor stoppage.
The 32-year-old Quinones will also be making his UFC debut as he enters on a five-fight win streak.
