Discuss week 6 of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series right here on Bloody Elbow.
Tonight (Tuesday, August 15th) is week 6 of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, which will highlight up-and-coming talent, as well as some former UFC fighters looking for a second crack at the big time. Winners aren’t guaranteed a UFC contract, so impressive performances matter a lot. Bloody Elbow is your place to discuss this five-fight event at The Ultimate Fighter gym in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The main event this evening are middleweights Charles Byrd and Randall Wallace. If Byrd sounds familiar to you, that’s because he fought in the first Contender Series card, winning by arm-triangle choke. Dana White didn’t sign him to a UFC contract, but did opt to bring him back to Contender Series to prove himself once more.
Once again, there are no ex-UFC competitors on the card, but we finally have women’s MMA fighters. Strawweights Tiffany Masters and Jamie Colleen open up the night’s broadcast.
As is the case for the whole of this eight-week run, Dana White’s Contender Series streams live on UFC Fight Pass, starting at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. If you want SnoopCast commentary, click here. For a complete preview of tonight’s show, check out Dayne Fox’s preview.
