A bantamweight division attraction has been added to UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Lewis as Malcolm Gordon faces Su Mudaerji.
Aaron Bronsteter of TSN first reported the news.
Gordon (12-4-0) is winless thus far under the UFC banner having dropped a bout to Amir Albazi at UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez II. Gordon hasn’t earned a victory in well over a year, with that last win coming over Yoni Sherbatov at TKO MMA 47. Gordon has competed 16 times as a professional MMA fighter and just two of those bouts went the distance.
Mudaerji (12-4-0) has won just one of two in UFC competition with that lone win coming over Andre Soukhamthath at UFC Fight Night Shenzhen. Mudaerji is going to be competing for the first time in over a year, as his last MMA fight happened in August of 2019. Mudaerji has suffered four losses as a professional MMA fighter and all of them came by way of submission.
UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Lewis is set for Saturday, November 28 from a location to be announced with Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, while broadcast plans have yet to be revealed.
