A striker’s delight has been scheduled for a UFC Fight Night in April.

First reported by Alex Behunin, Charles Jourdain and Lando Vannata are scheduled to square off in Las Vegas on April 23. The UFC has not confirmed the details of the bout or the venue, but the card is expected to take place at the APEX. 

Charles Jourdain (12-4-1, 3-3-1 UFC) has traded wins and losses since his Octagon debut in May 2019. Most recently Jourdain earned a unanimous decision victory over Andre Ewell in December. He was scheduled to face Ilia Topuria at UFC 270, but Topuria was forced to withdraw due to weight cutting issues. Jourdain will look to make it two-in-a-row for the first time in his UFC career.

Lando Vannata (12-5-2, 4-5-2 UFC) will also be looking to make it two-in-a-row for the first time under the UFC banner in April. Since starting his UFC run with a 1-3 record, Vannata has alternated wins and losses with notable victories coming against John Makdessi, Yancy Medeiros and Mike Grundy

The April 23 Fight Night is expected to be headlined by Jessica Andrade as she returns to strawweight to face rising contender Amanda Lemos. Other bouts currently scheduled for the event include:

  • Tanner Boser vs. Rodrigo Nascimento
  • Manel Kape vs. Su Mudaerji
  • Louis Cosce vs. Preston Parsons
  • Qileng Aori vs. Cameron Else
  • Clay Guida vs. Claudio Puelles
  • Maycee Barber vs. Montana De La Rosa
  • Tyson Pedro vs. Ike Villanueva
  • Dwight Grant vs. Sergey Khandozkho

Card subject to change.
