Jourdain lost to Andre Fili via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Clearly upset with his performance, Jourdain was totally baffled when ring announcer Joe Martinez read the one scorecard in his favor. It was a close contest but the correct decision was made. Jourdain won Round 1 on the heels of a late knockdown, but his momentum stalled in Rounds 2 and 3. He struggled to match the pace of Fili in addition to displaying poor takedown defense. The 24-year-old Canadian came up short on Saturday but he's a talented kid and time is on his side. Jourdain has alternated wins and losses in his first three UFC bouts.
Agrees to June 13 clash

May 23, 2020
Jourdain has a verbal agreement in place to fight Andre Fili in a featherweight matchup at a UFC event on June 13, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jourdain emerged victorious against Dooho Choi last December in his most recent bout; the first UFC win of his career. He typically aims to stay upright and throw a high volume of punches, evidenced by his lack of a takedown through two UFC bouts and seven KO/TKOs out of 10 career professional victories. He sports a significant disadvantage in terms of height (two inches) and reach (five inches), however, so he will have to toy with getting in close while avoiding takedown attempts from Fili. Oddsmakers are pegging Jourdain as a (+165) betting underdog shortly after the announcement of this bout.
Comes through as big underdog

Jourdain defeated Doo Ho Choi via TKO (punches) at 4:32 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN+ 23 on Saturday in Busan, South Korea.
ANALYSIS
Jourdain may have lost a decision in his May debut, but the 24-year-old Canadian prospect bounced back in a major way in enemy territory. It wasn't smooth sailing from the beginning, however, as he ate a big counter left hand in the first round that was followed with a body kick and had him hurt. Jourdain managed to survive into the second frame, where momentum started to turn in his favor around the midway point. A series of punches culminated in a big left hand that sent Choi to the canvas and it was all over from there. Jourdain finished the second round with a 36 to 13 advantage in significant strikes, bringing his total up to 64 on the fight. It was a solid fantasy day for a fighter that was as high as a (+340) underdog in some books, so Jourdain should see a little more respect from bettors his next time out. To add to his successful evening, he and Choi will both take home a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus following the back-and-forth affair.
