Dana White Says The “Contender Series” Will Return

“It’s doing very well,” White told MMA Junkie. “It’s killing it for us, and I have other plans for this show, too, so yeah, this is going to keep going.”

Thus far, a total of 11 fighters have earned UFC contracts, with those fighters being Kurt Holobuagh, Boston Salmon, Sean O’Malley, Karl Roberson, Geoffrey Neal, Julian Marquez, Brandon Davis, Mike Rodriguez, Alex Perez, Charles Byrd and Grant Dawson.

White also believes he found the perfect formula for a weekly MMA event series.

“I think I finally came up with the perfect concept for weekly shows,” White said. “I love it.”

The show returns with Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series Episode 7, which takes place on Tuesday, August 22 from the TUF Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada with Anton Berzin and Kennedy Nzechukwu headlining.
