When Canadian Charles “Air” Jourdain drops down from 155 lbs. to 145 lbs. to fight veteran Andre Fili this weekend, a fighter looking to make an impression in a new weight class will face off with a veteran gatekeeper.
Jourdain is a Quebecer with a 10-2 record who is 1-1 in the UFC, but all 10 wins have been via stoppage (7 TKO/KO’s, 3 submissions). A decision loss to Desmond Green opened his UFC career, but he rebounded with a second round TKO of Doo Ho Choi in December.
Fili has the more impressive resume despite the lesser winning percentage at 20-7. He’s 8-6 in the octagon, and might be serving as gatekeeper for the up-and-comer. His impressive resume makes him a strong favorite on the open. He has three stoppages in UFC, but only one since November of 2015.
Here are the betting odds at DraftKings Sportsbook for Andre Fili vs. Charles Jourdain at UFC Fight Night on ESPN on June 13th:
