The UFC 303 lineup now boasts its tenth fight.

Silva to Undercard

Charles Jourdain (15-7-1 MMA, 6-6-1 UFC) is looking to rebound from a split decision loss to Sean Woodson at UFC 297 in January. Prior to that defeat, Jourdain was on a two-fight winning streak with victories over Kron Gracie and Ricardo Ramos.

Jean Silva (12-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was originally scheduled to fight at UFC 301 on May 4, but his opponent, William Gomis, was deemed medically unfit to compete after a concerning weigh-in. Silva, a Dana White’s Contender Series alum, impressed in his promotional debut with a first-round knockout of Westin Wilson in January.

  • Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler
  • Jamahal Hill vs. Khalil Rountree
