UFC fighter Jared Gordon almost lost three of his fingers in a GTA style street brawl against gang members in New York City.
Last February Jared Gordon lost by TKO against Darlos Diego Ferreira in the first round, a defeat that came two weeks after a violent altercation between Jared and New York gang members that nearly cost him three fingers. The UFC fighter has finally spoken out on the subject:
‘We all started fighting; my friend was fighting another guy and they were punching us. We struck against a shop window and it broke on top of us. I didn’t talk about it before, because I’m not the kind of guy who makes excuses. I had a terrible training camp because I couldn’t fight or do jiu-jitsu.’ Props to Diego, he did what had to be done.
A good sport, Jared isn’t blaming his defeat on his injury, even if he wasn’t able to prepare for the fight in the way he usually does. This is a story Jared will not soon forget!
