Jared Gordon is set to take on Dan Moret in a lightweight tilt at UFC on ESPN 3.
Gordon is coming off back-to-back KO/TKO defeats, first to Carlos Diego Ferreira at UFC Fight Night 126 and most recently to Joaquim Silva at UFC on Fox 31. The two losses in a row set his record back to 14-3. Before the losses, the 30-year-old was riding a five-fight winning streak with wins over Hacran Dias and Michel Quinones in his first two UFC bouts.
Moret, like Gordon is also riding a two-fight losing streak with his past two losses coming via a decision loss to Alex White at UFC Fight Night 146 and a knockout loss to Gilbert Burns at UFC on Fox 29. Moret is still looking for his first win inside the Octagon.
UFC on ESPN 3 takes place at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn. on June 29 and is headlined by a welterweight rematch between two former champions in Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler.
