Just before the preliminary fight between former WEC and interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit and The Ultimate Fighter 11 winner Court McGee, a featherweight fight between former TKO champion Charles Jourdain and former DFC lightweight champion Joshua Culibao stood at 145 lbs

We knew coming to Jourdain was an amazing strike, he had just lost a very close split decision to Andre Fili, but had finished Doo Ho Choi via TKO in his fight before Fili Culibao had only fought once inside the Octagon, where he lost to Jalin Turner in a lightweight bout, ending his undefeated record

Jourdain entered this fight with a 10-3 record, and Culibao entered with an 8-1 record. It was a great game between Canada and Australia, reminiscent of the TUF Smashes

Jourdain came out with a flying knee to start the first round, but nothing came of it He immediately took control of the center once the fight started and gave some nice kicks in the legs Jourdain tried another flying knee, which allowed Culibao to bond with him

Culibao attempted the withdrawal, but could not get it, and they were back at the center Culibao ended up falling, and presumably breaking Jordan’s nose with a straight top, and enveloping Jourdain in a choke at guillotine immediately after

Culibao went to great lengths for a body lock trip once the third inning started, but Jourdain dug his hook properly and got out of it Jourdain ended up cutting Culibao with a barrage of strikes and momentarily knocked him out Although Jourdain followed and kept throwing, Culibao was able to survive

Jourdain swept Culibao off with a bad kick, forcing Culibao back to the mat In a scramble, Joudain ended up locking himself in an inverted triangle, and it looked like the fight might be over by then -the

When we realized he wasn’t going to have the triangle, there was hope for the armband there, but Jourdain eventually bailed out and they started hitting again.The remaining 30 seconds rolled out on the feet, back and forth until it’s finished
