In recent weeks, five distinguished fighters from the ranks of Ultimate Warrior Challenge Mexico (UWC): Silvana Malvada Gmez, Michael Morales, Cristian Problema Quinez, Manuel Loco Torres and Genaro Rayadito Valdez, achieved their ticket to the major leagues with the Ultimate Fighting Championship ( UFC).

All of them received the invitation for the Dana Whites Contender Series combat program and, with the exception of Gmez Jurez, they made their entrance to the UFC with resounding victories in the series.

While Malvada, less than a week after her match on the program, she received the opportunity to jump directly to the Octagon to face Mexican Guadalupe Loopy Gpdnez (6-2-0) at UFC Fight Night 195.

The native of San Miguel de Tucumn, Argentina, got a four-fight contract in the UFC and, although she fell by submission in the first round on October 16, she will have other opportunities to shine on the big screen.

While the first to win his ticket to the UFC was Morales (12-0-0), who just a few months ago made his UWC debut, and on September 21, he gave account of Nikolay Veretennikov (9-4-0) by unanimous decision.

From there it was the turn of Valdez (10-0-0), who on October 5 discounted Patrik Prime Time White (9-2-0) by technical knockout at 44 seconds of the second round to continue Entram Gym’s streak.

The only UWC veteran who did not achieve the coveted contract with UWC was Jos Pochito Alday (13-6-1), who was overtaken by split decision by Saimon Oliveira (18-3-0), this on September 7.

Sincerely warm congratulations to all the UWC fighters who were called up to the Contender Series, something that marks what we have said for a long time: that the UFC’s eyes are on our events.

And then obviously a bigger congratulations to the five who won a contract in these months, and we know that Alday will soon receive another opportunity to show his own as their fight was very close, commented Alejandro Islas.
