Mixed martial arts career
Smith made his amateur debut on June 15, 2007, at 205 lbs with a 19 second TKO victory over Alex May. He amassed a record of 5 amateur fights, all ending with first round finishes.
Smith made his professional debut on December 8, 2007, in the light heavyweight division. He won his first 10 professional fights, finishing all 10 opponents, 8 in the first round. Following a draw with the much larger Rich Hale, Smith dropped to the 185 lb weight class for his next fight, a first round submission of IFL veteran Bristol Marunde.
Jordan then appeared on the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Liddell vs. Team Ortiz, where he lost via KO to Brad Tavares. He followed his TUF loss with 3 victories at 185 lbs. He lost via split decision to UFC veteran Josh Burkman at a catchweight of 180 lbs.
Following the Burkman fight Jordan once again dropped weight classes settling at Welterweight (170). His Welterweight debut resulted in a third round submission of Mario Sartori. Jordan's next fight ended in only 11 seconds, with him getting TKO'd by Tim McKenzie. Jordan has since earned decision victories over well known UFC veteran Karo Parisyan and WEC and Strikeforce veteran Josh McDonald.

In 2012, Smith was featured in the Bellator Season 6 Welterweight Tournament. He replaced Brian Foster in the opening round of the welterweight tournament and faced David Rickels in the opening round of the tournament at Bellator 63 and lost via first round KO.
