Five Contracts Awarded at Week 2 of Contender Series Season 5

Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series (DWTNCS) has returned, bringing with it the next rising stars of the UFC. 

Last week, the season kicked off with four contracts being doled out, with a fight’s loser being given a contract for the first time in the show’s history.

Each week, the match winners (mostly) are awarded with a UFC contract. I am personally so happy to get the Contender Series back in action, making Tuesdays a must see for any UFC fans. The quick results from this week’s full card are as follows.

Josh Quinlan def. Logan Urban (Welterweight)

Knockout via Punches (:37 of Round 1)

Chidi Njokuani def. Mario Sousa (Middleweight)

Knockout via Ground and Pound (1:35 of Round 3)

Saimon Oliveira def. Jose Alday (Bantamweight)

Decision (Split)

CJ Vergara def. Bruno Korea (Flyweight)

Knockout via Knee to the Body (:41 of Round 1)

Chad Anheliger def. Muin Gafurov (Bantamweight)

Decision (Split)

This week, all five winners received a contract, with CJ Vergara and Josh Quinlan making statement victories that garnered respect all over social media!

The Contender Series will return next Tuesday with another five fight card, and the contracts are going out left and right!
