Former Ultimate Fighter season 18 competitor Tim Gorman never got a chance to prove he could win the reality show after an injury knocked him out of the running before he even fought one of his housemates in the tournament.

Luckily, Gorman made quite an impression on UFC president Dana White when he offered to fight despite basically walking around with one leg after suffering a torn hamstring. Gorman's guts and tenacity earned him a shot in the Octagon regardless of being left off The Ultimate Fighter, and now he'll get a chance to prove his worth.

Gorman has verbally agreed to face off against Canadian Mitch Gagnon at an upcoming UFC event scheduled for April 16. Sources close to the matchup confirmed to FOX Sports that verbal agreements are in place for the upcoming bantamweight fight although bout agreements have not been issued yet.

Mitch Gagnon will certainly look to take advantage of Gorman's notoriety when they face off in April. The Canadian fighter has been extremely impressive in his last two bouts submitting both Walel Watson and Dustin Kimura in the first round.

Now Gagnon will take on Gorman as he makes his UFC debut while hoping to build upon a three-fight win streak of his own.

More information about the April 16 card will come down the pipe in the coming weeks as fights are made and become available.
