Shawn Jordan (18-6 MMA) will be looking to extend his current win streak to four in a row when he squares off with Magomedov in Texas. “The Savage” was most recently seen in action at June’s UFC Fight Night 68 event, where he scored a highlight reel hook-kick knockout over Derrick Lewis. All three of Jordan’s most recent wins have come by way of knockout.
Meanwhile, Ruslan Magomedov (13-1 MMA) has put together an impressive eight-fight win streak, which includes two decision wins under the UFC banner. Magomedov was last seen in action at November’s UFC Fight Night 57 event, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over Josh Copeland.
