Jake Hadley discusses his upcoming fight at UFC 286

Jake Hadley will get to fight in his home country of England at UFC 286 and he cannot wait for the opportunity.

So far, Hadley is 9-1 in his professional career and that lone loss came in his UFC debut.

That debut took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and Hadley’s second UFC appearance would also take place at the Apex.

Prior to joining the UFC, Hadley fought in the Cage Warriors promotion which is a massive scene for up-and-coming fighters in Europe.

Its safe the say the European scene treated Hadley well as he went 6-0 before coming over to the United States to compete on Dana White’s Contender Series where he earned his UFC contract.

While there is excitement buzzing around Hadley for UFC 286, his main objective is to go out and get his second career UFC win when he takes on Malcolm Gordon as Hadley looks to make a big splash here in 2023.

Hadley knows Gordon is tough opponent and that he as looked good in his last few outings, but Hadley feels this is a good fight stylistically for him and he thinks he get a finish at UFC 286.

Prior to the fight, Hadley spoke with MyMMANews about fighting in his home country, his UFC 286 matchup against Malcolm Gordon and his thoughts on his teammate Leon Edwards defending his title in the main event against Kamaru Usman.
