Two former TUF winners will square off later this month at the upcoming UFC Fight Night from Hollywood, California. Eddie Gordon (7-3) unfortunately did not have success in his previous two fights. Though a quick turnaround may be exactly what he needs to get back on track after suffering a loss back in April. He faces TUF Brazil three winner Antonio Carlos Junior (4-1) who was last seen giving Patrick Cummins his third victory in the UFC back in December. He also looks to return back to the win column with a victory in Florida.
UFC Fight Night from Hollywood takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and is headlined by two top contenders in the middleweight division. Lyoto Machida faces Yoel Romero in a battle that could move on of these fighters back in top spot with a title fight not too far off. The co-main event will be a scorcher in welterweight division between Erik Silva and Rock Story.
Eddie Gordon trains at Serra BJJ which is the same camp that hosts UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Gordon took no time capturing his TUF Finale win but has dropped his two fights after. He recently lost to Chris Dempsey in a tough close decision. Carlos Junior is dripping down to 185 after winning the TUF Finale at heavyweight but lost his fight against Cummins at 205. He thinks 185 is his new home so we will have to see how he competes in the new division.
Look for the card to be finalized in the upcoming day and it will air live on Fox Sports 1.
