Jousset will be the local favorite on fight night when he meets Crosbie.

Both fighters have some quality big-show experience and solid wins under their belts.

But who has the edge on Saturday when they enter the UFC octagon for the first time?

Jousset is the taller and longer athlete (three inches taller with a five-inch reach advantage).

However, he has faced a lower level of competition throughout his career.

It is worth noting that, though, that aside from Conor McGregor and Ian Garry, Irish athletes have lost their past 10 UFC debuts.

Jousset vs. Crosbie Pick

I don't project value on either a side or a total in this matchup.

However, I do expect the French-born Jousset to win a decision – with the Sydney crowd behind him – more often than the betting odds suggest (projected +234, listed +350 at FanDuel).

Allocate a small wager to Jousset's decision prop (at +260 or better) for the first bout on Saturday's card.

Kevin Jousset wins by decision (+350)
