UFC Fight Night 228 video: Charles Jourdain scores slick submission of Ricardo Ramos, calls out Cub Swanson

Charles Jourdain showed he’s got more than just dynamic striking on Saturday when he submitted Ricardo Ramos at UFC Fight Night 228.

Jourdain (15-6-1 MMA, 6-5-1 UFC) wasted no time engaging with Ramos on the ground in the opening round of the featherweight bout at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. He matched his Brazilian foe in every exchange before locking up a guillotine choke for the tap at the 3:12 mark of Round 1.

The Canadian’s performance was described as “stunning” by UFC commentator and UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping, and you can watch the replay below (via X):

Jourdain followed the win by expressing his ground threat.

“They know I’m a striker. I need to have this little card in my pocket for guys who want to take me down,” Jourdain said in his post-fight interview with Bisping. “I’m the youngest Canadian on the UFC roster and I’m the Canadian with the most fights, and I’m very proud of that.”

Afterward, Jourdain once again called out Cub Swanson, who he has shown interest in fighting in the past.

“They talk about UFC Toronto. I saw Cub Swanson around,” Jourdain said. “Cub, let’s fight in Toronto. Canadian fans deserve a very good battle between the new school and the old school.”
