Fight By Fight Preview | UFC Fight Night: Fiziev vs Gamrot

All-action featherweights open the main card as Brazil’s Ricardo Ramos squares off with Canada’s Charles Jourdain.

The 28-year-old Ramos has been hit-and-miss throughout his UFC career, showing moments of brilliance like his two spinning back elbow victories alongside frustrating efforts like his loss to Zubaira Tukhugov at UFC 267. Compounding things is the fact that he’s struggled to compete consistently, with opponent withdrawals, COVID and, most recently, a big miss on the scales scuttling multiple fights.

Jourdain has been one of the more active fighters in the division since his May 2019 debut, as Saturday will be his 12th UFC appearance. Like Ramos, the French-Canadian talent has struggled to find consistent results, but he snapped a two-fight skid with a patient, measured win over Kron Gracie last time out, acknowledging the need to be a little more technical and tactical in his post-fight interview.

Both men are creative strikers with quality skills on the ground, as well, and at 28 and 26, respectively, they still have time to figure out who they are as competitors and try to cobble together the kind of winning streak that carries them into the rankings and gives them more established footing in the division. On paper, this is one of the frontrunners in the Fight of the Night conversation, and should be an entertaining, competitive affair from start-to-finish, whenever that may come.
