Shane Burgos vs. Charles Jourdain
UFC Featherweight Bout
Saturday, July 16, 2022 – 02:35 PM EDT at UBS Arena
Shane "Hurricane" Burgos (14-3-0)
If you've run out of fighter names that can assist your viewing while keeping you entertained for hours, just search for 'Shane Burgos' and be prepared to witness an excellent offensive striker with a no-quit attitude.
Since making his UFC debut in 2017, Shane Burgos has been involved in some of the most brutal octagon wars, including names such as Calvin Kattar, Josh Emmett, and Edson Barboza. Behind a 5-3 record for the promotion, Burgos has only lost to a top-tier level of opposition while defeating some notable up-and-comers along the way.
Under the guided wisdom of Tiger Schulmann's MMA gym, 31-year-old Burgos has built a reputation amongst UFC fans and critics for his unbreakable will and heavy-pressure striking style. Match him up with any of the UFC's top 145lb fighters, and we're guaranteed violence.
Shane Burgos Fight Analysis
After losing the first round to Billy Quarantillo in his previous bout, Shane Burgos gave sports bettors a solid reason to put their money behind him with an extremely impressive comeback, and he's provided this level of worth since his pro-MMA debut.
Burgos is relentless in the striking department, and once he finds his rhythm, it's often a long night for the opponent standing opposite him in the cage.

Burgos vs. Jourdain Betting Pick and Odds
First, I'd like to thank the UFC matchmakers for providing a matchup involving two of the featherweight divisions' most entertaining strikers, as Charles "Air" Jourdain (13-4-0) is equally as entertaining in the octagon as his Saturday evening opponent.
Representing Canada, Jourdain is a well-rounded mixed martial artist, but like Burgos, he'll often be testing his striking offense in the cage. While he's far from a slouch and is currently riding a two-fight win streak, the New York crowd supporting Burgos could be a difference maker.
Sportsbooks have Burgos at a respectable -175 price tag, and if there's one fighter who doesn't need any more reasons to unleash the violence, it's Burgos. However, with the supportive New York crowd, we should expect him to bring the pain.
