Jordan vs. Cannonier, Horiguchi vs. Gaudinot added to UFC 182

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

A heavyweight contest pitting Shawn Jordan and Jared Cannonier, and a flyweight contest between Kyoji Horiguchi and Louis Gaudinot, have been added to UFC 182 on Jan. 3, according to UFC officials Thursday.

Jordan (16-6), who has won three of his past five fights, is returning to the Octagon after a third-round TKO of Jack May at UFC Fight Night 47 this past August.

Cannonier (7-0) is making his UFC debut. He has three knockout and three submission wins on his record.

Horiguchi (14-1) is 3-0 in the UFC and has won eight straight fights. He defeated Jon Delos Reyes via first-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 52 on Sept. 20.

Gaudinot (6-3, 1 no-contest) is returning to the Octagon for the first time since his submission win against Phil Harris was overturned because of a failed drug test for a diuretic.

Jon Jones will defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Daniel Cormier in the main event.
