One round at a time… –
Dec. 27, 2020 – The incredible thing was he was coming up as an excellent MMA prospect at the same time. From 2011 to 2015, Gordon won the first nine fights of his MMA career before suffering his first career loss to Jeff Lentz. In the Lentz fight, Gordon suffered an eye injury that led him to once again being hooked on pain meds. Not long after suffering the first loss of his professional MMA career, Gordon suffered his third overdose, and that was what made him decided to finally get clean from drugs. He entered rehab after and has been sober for five years since. After winning three more fights after getting clean, the UFC signed him.
