The dates for Season 6 of Dana White’s Contender Series are now
The promotion, which serves as a feeder system for the Ultimate
Fighting Championship, received approval from the Nevada State
Athletic Commission to hold cards at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on
Tuesday nights from July 26 to Sept. 27. If that holds, the
upcoming season of the Contender Series would be 10 events.
The Contender Series held eight cards apiece in its first two
seasons, but has since expanded to 10 events for Seasons 3 through
5. Cards typically feature five bouts barring late cancellations,
but a few have included as many as six fights.
Some of the notables to sign with the UFC from the Contender Series
O’Malley, Geoff Neal,
Cortez, Andre Muniz,
Crute, Alex Perez
Dawson, to name a few.
