Five more fighters: the Contender Series has fifteen new contracts for the UFC in three weeks


Like every Tuesday, Dana White’s Contend Series delivered new contracts for UFC. On this occasion, as in the previous two weeks, there were five ties that the “boss” gave to the fighters. This contest brings together the best hidden talents who are looking to succeed in the major leagues of MMA. Therefore, it is almost guaranteed that there will be great shows.

In relation to what happened this Tuesday, September 14, Dana White repeated the same in the first three weeks, giving him a contract with UFC five fighters. This has never happened in previous seasons, so it really draws everyone’s attention what is happening. In fact, they have been linked to some fighters, something unusual in the Dana White’s Contender Series.

One of the highlights left Brazilian Light Heavyweight Jailton Almeida (14-2) at the top, who managed to extend his current winning streak to eight. He has won several fights in a row after being able to subdue previously undefeated Russian prospect Nasrudin Nasrudinov (9-1). Not only did he cut his “zero”, but he also literally cut him off at the Apex in Las Vegas.
