UFC Fight Night Paris is set to get going this weekend from Accor Arena in Paris, France on Saturday, September 3 at 3 p.m. ET. There is a six-bout main card highlighted by a heavyweight title eliminator fight between No. 1 contender Cyril Gane and No. 3 contender Tai Tuivasa. The opening match on the main card will be between featherweights Charles Jourdain and Nathaniel Wood
Jourdain (13-5-1) is never one to back down from a challenge and he’s stepping back in the octagon just six weeks after coming out on the short end of an exciting brawl with Shane Burgos. Wood (18-5) also fought a little more than a month ago when he earned a unanimous decision over Charles Rosa on July 23.

DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 62% of handle, 64% of bets on Jourdain
This should be an exciting opener as both of these guys bring a ton of energy into their fights. Jourdain can put together some impressive strikes that hurt opponents. Wood would be best served to keep this fight at a distance that will keep him out of danger. I expect a tight fight here with both fighters having their moments and Jourdain ekeing out a decision.
