Jordan Taylo Mein is a mixed martial artist from Canada who has been competing professionally since 2006. He competed mostly in the welterweight division of the UFC. He has also competed for other promotions including King of the Cage and Strikeforce.
Jordan Mein is the son of Lee Mein, an MMA trainer who also holds a black belt in Jiu Jitsu. When Mein was young, his father organized and operated a local promotion called Rumble in the Cage. Because of this, Jordan Mein who has been training since age four, got the opportunity to fight man to man when he was only 11 years old. His amateur career kickstarted when he was 14 years old and he eventually went pro at the age of 16.
His professional debut was in one of his father’s Rumble in the Cage shows in 2006. In 2011, he managed to defeat Joe Riggs via KO in the second round. Then he defeated Josh Burkman via unanimous decision. He then struck a four fight deal with Strikforce in July of 2011, making his promotional debut at the Strikeforce World Gran Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov. He defeated Evangelista Santos via TKO. Mein’s UFC debut was a career highlight for him as he became the first to defeat Dan Miller in the first round. He gained Fight of the Night honors during his fight with Matt Brown and also won another Performance of the Night bonus when he defeated Mike Pyle. He is currently making his video game debut, called UFC2.
At the age of only 27 years old, Jordan Mein has amassed a professional record of 29 wins and 10 losses. It is no wonder he is nicknamed Young Gun.
