After losing 2 of his last 3 bouts, Scott Jorgensen has a chance to stay relevant in a division that is still looking to identify itself. He will be fighting the poster boy for the lighter weight fighters, Urijah Faber this weekend at TUF 17 finale. In possibly defeating Faber, he has the opportunity to try to move up the rankings in the UFC’s bantamweight division.

Scott Jorgensen has had an up and downhill battle since he made his way to t he UFC after being a part of the WEC. In the WEC, he was able to establish himself as one of the top fighters in the world by defeating contenders like Brad Pickett and Takeya Mizugaki, taking part of the last WEC event fighting Dominick Cruz for the WEC/UFC Bantamweight title. He ended up on the losing side of things being defeated by unanimous decision.

Since being migrated to the UFC, his only octagon losses are to Interim UFC Champion Renan Barao and current number one contender Eddie Wineland, which is nothing to be ashamed of by any means. If he wants to work his way up the ladder to another title shot, this is perfect chance, by defeating Faber, it would then position him one or two fights away from another shot.

Scott needs to make the most of this fight with Faber. If not, then we may never see him earn a chance to be called a UFC champion. If he loses, then at best he may only be served as a gatekeeper to the division.

  • i don’t know but Faber is a good fighter. Jorgenson has his work cut out for him.

  • Evan Stoumbelis

    Jorgensen made quite the impression in his last fight, it’ll be interesting to see if that was the momentum shifting fight for him, and if he’ll be able to keep that momentum for this fight. Faber is a veteran but Jorgensen is very very good and can end fights quickly.
