Eddie Gordon is a fighter who may have been going through a rough patch in the UFC Octagon but is now ready to get back out there and continue in the sport that he love. The Freeport New Nork resident is looking to make his way back to the top in a sport that can, at times be unforgiving. Gordon will be participating in the co-main event this Saturday night at the Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC) at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The former Ultimate Fighter season 19 winner has not fought since June 2015 when he lost his fight against Antonio Carlos Junior at UFC Fight Night 70. That was the last fight for Gordon in the UFC, he was released shortly after.

He is now looking for a fresh start in the CFFC. He will be fighting Chris Lozano (10-3) who was been on a bit of a downturn in his career as well. Lozano lost two of his last Bellator fights that ultimately led to his release. Gordon is not taking this fight lightly, he said in an interview with Jim Edwards at FloCombat “He’s fought some good guys man and he’s a scrappy boxer so he’s going to be tough,”  Gordon went on to say “I’m going for a finish, I want to do that for the fans as they always want to see the finish. Just looking at the fight we are two stylistic guys who like to trade so I see a knockout, I see a TKO and if I have to take him down and use my ground game I can see myself finishing him there. I’m just excited man, I just want to showcase to everyone that I’m back, ‘Truck’ is back and there’s a reason to be excited about me again.”

Gordon trains at the well known Serra-Longo gym in New York. Many top guys in the UFC train at this gym, including the former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Gordon attributes his success and the ability to get back into the cage to his coaches and training partners at Serra-Longo. He said, “Serra-Longo is my team man, ever since day one–I’m truly, truly blessed to be a part of it.”Eddie Gordon is happy to be back in the cage, so are all of his fans. This fight will be shown on a tape delay on CBS Sports Network.
