Until doctors can prescribe lifelong dreams for pick-up at a local pharmacy, Jordan “Bomaye” Williams (7-2), a tough pill for anyone at 185-pounds, ignored his physician’s orders and accepted a last-minute opportunity to compete in week three of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS).
Williams entered MMA as a welterweight, but the hard-nosed wrestler with dynamite in his hands has settled comfortably into a new middleweight frame. Since transitioning to the larger weight class earlier this year, this highly-touted member of Nor-Cal Fighting Alliance claimed ownership of the vacant Dragon House MMA Middleweight Title with a devastating knockout and earned a TKO victory at Bellator 199—all in under two minutes.
These mesmerizing finishes as of late—in addition to a decorated resume with total six stoppages—painted Williams as a prospect with endless potential, On June 26, 2018, the UFC will allow Williams an attempt to punch his ticket into MMA’s ‘Big Show,’ facing Tim Caron (9-1)—on five-days notice—as a contestant on DWCS, which airs every Tuesday evening on UFC Fight Pass.
Taking any adversity in stride, Williams, who also suffers from type-1 diabetes, shared a post on Instagram that made his arduous journey to attain a UFC contract appear as sweet as sugar:
“The UFC Training Center is so far ahead of its time; I was nothing short of amazed walking through these doors. Managed to take my own selfie during my first UFC Contender photoshoot. Tune-in to UFC Fight Pass this next Tuesday night to watch my next fight I took on a five day notice, four months and three weeks before doctor’s recommendations, but one I am totally ready to accept my dreams for!”
