Charles Jourdain once said in a press conference that he’s sacrificing his health for the sport, which is absolutely correct. This is when he was asked about his neck piece. “It’s Odin, the All father. I got a Samurai, I want all sorts of warriors, representation of warriors on my skin from different eras.”

He explained how Odin sacrificed his eye for knowledge just like Jourdain himself sacrifices his health for the battles sport. It also explains his Samurai tattoo. Moreover, he has a massive moon and what looks like a wolf on either sides of his chest. Perhaps it’s referencing a werewolf. A man that becomes a monster when the full moon arrives.

Who’s likely to win the bout?

‘Air’ Jourdain might just have the favor of the bet makers. He’s favored at around -120 odds and this could fluctuate. Either way, he’s still the favorite. Perhaps it has to do with his history and record. He is 15-6-1 in his professional career. A solid record for certain. However, Woodson is equally impressive. Perhaps, even more.
