Fight called off
FeatherweightUFC
January 21, 2022
Jourdain's Saturday fight against Ilia Topuria was called off after Topuria failed to make weight Friday, MMA reporter Ariel Helwani reports.
ANALYSIS
Jourdain took the fight just nine days before it was scheduled to take place, stepping in after Movsar Evloev withdrew for undisclosed reasons. He'll have to wait a bit longer for his next trip to the Octagon, as it's far too late for a replacement for Topuria to be found.

Hammers Andre Ewell
FeatherweightUFC
December 18, 2021
Jourdain defeated Andre Ewell via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It took Jourdain the better part of a round to find his range, but once he did, Ewell was done. Jourdain out-landed Ewell just 25-23 in the opening frame, but upped those numbers to 112-33 over the course of the final ten minutes (unofficially). Many of those shots were massive, and Jourdain would have easily earned the stoppage were it not for the insane toughness of Ewell. Consistency has been a major issue for the Canadian during this time with the UFC, but he turned just 26 years of age this past November and already has seven fights with the company under his belt. His record is just .500 (3-3-1), but there are reasons to believe brighter days are ahead after this effort.
Paired with Andre Ewell

October 19, 2021
Jourdain will face Andre Ewell in a featherweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Dec. 18, Alex Behunin of Cageside Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Jourdain hasn't gotten off to the best start in his UFC career, winning twice in six matches. The Canadian most recently lost to Julian Erosa by submission in September. His opponent, Ewell, isn't in the best form, either, having lost two straight fights.
Choked out in Vegas
FeatherweightUFC
September 4, 2021
Jourdain lost to Julian Erosa via submission (brabo choke) at 2:56 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's a disastrous result for Jourdain in a fight in which he entered as a significant -200 favorite. Jourdain appeared to have rebounded following a slow start. He connected on a whopping 64 percent of his total strikes attempts in Round 2 (50-for-78), but Erosa scored a pair of quick takedowns in the final frame before clamping on a perfectly-placed brabo choke. Jourdain is just 25 years of age and has competitive in each of his first six (2-3-1) UFC bouts, but there is limited upside here.
