Video: Jared Gordon wants to use fighting as platform to help people through similar situations he’s dealt with

The featured preliminary bout of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 119 will be a lightweight bout as Jared Gordon will look for his second win in the UFC when he meets Hacran Dias on the fight card coming from the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Gordon (13-1) made his UFC debut earlier this year at UFC Fight Night 112 and defeated Michel Quinones by stoppage in the second round. The victory marked his fourth straight win and three of those wins have come by stoppage.

On last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Gordon was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight against Dias and explained how he wants to use fighting as a platform to help people that are going through similar situations that he’s dealt with in his life.
