Charles Jourdain finally explained that awkward tweet about his stepsister before UFC 297

Charles Jourdain is no doubt a fun UFC fighter to follow on X, but even for an account as unfiltered as his, he shared one tweet not too long ago that raised eyebrows.

Perhaps you remember it? It was this one about his stepsister on Nov. 24:

Oh really? That’s awkward.

If you’ve been wondering what those words meant ever since Jourdain hit send, we got our answer during Wednesday’s UFC 297 media day in Toronto, where The Mac Life’s Oscar Willis courageously asked him where that philosophy comes from.

“It’s important to take chances in life. I should’ve phrased it that way,” Jourdain said. “No, I’m just having fun with Twitter. Yeah, I’m having fun. It’s a fun role that I say stupid stuff. And I’m not that related. We have the same father, but we have a different mother, so we’re not that close.”

And then he gave a wink.

We’re not sure that did anything to make it less awkward lol.

Anyway, Jourdain (15-6-1 MMA, 6-5-1 UFC) has a fight this Saturday at UFC 297 (pay-per-view, ESPN+). He meets Sean Woodson in a featherweight bout at Scotiabank Arena.

Hopefully his stepsister-inspired strategy works!
