Gordon (19-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC) and Green (29-14-1 MMA, 10-9-1 UFC) have agreed to meet at UFC Fight Night on April 22. The event does not have an announced location or venue at this time.
Two people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the booking Friday. The people requested anonymity because the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
Gordon will attempt to bounce back from his controversial unanimous decision loss to Paddy Pimblett last month at UFC 282. The result was named MMA Junkie’s Robbery of the Year for 2022, and instead of giving Gordon back-to-back wins on his record, he’s now lost two of his past three.
Green, for his part, is also coming off a loss. He was knocked out by Drew Dober at UFC Fight Night 216 in December.
The latest lineup for UFC Fight Night on April 22 now includes:
Jared Gordon vs. Bobby Green
Norma Dumont vs. Karol Rosa
William Gomis vs. Francis Marshall
Iasmin Lucindo vs. Melissa Martinez
