SYDNEY – Kevin Jousset knows the optics might be a little askew, given he was featured at media day for his first UFC fight.
The two-time Hex Fight Series champion, from France, thinks the UFC brass knows what he brings to the table. Jousset (8-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) takes on Kiefer Crosbie (10-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) in a welterweight curtain jerker Saturday. He’ll be hoping to get the event started with a win for New Zealand-based City Kickboxing, where his teammates include middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who headlines the card.
Jousset talked about that and more at Wednesday’s UFC 293 media day in Sydney.
Check out the full interview in the video above. UFC 293 takes place Saturday at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews and ESPN+.
