Jordan Wright is a lengthy middleweight that is a two-fight veteran of Dana White’s Contender Series. Wright has a 100% win finishing rate. And though he has some submissions, the main part of his game stems from his kicks.

Wright made his debut in the UFC at light heavyweight and was still able to finish Ike Villanueva after the doctor had to come in and stop the bout in the first round because of a cut. Wright looked strong in his debut, using his karate and gymnastic background to control the distance and land strikes on his opponent. Jordan has some very fast finishes early in the first round but, the only thing somewhat questionable about him is the strength of competition outside of the UFC as some of the fighters from his first 7 or 8 bouts have some ugly professional MMA records.
