Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series (DWTNCS) is back in full swing on June 18 and the card is now official.
DWTNCS has been the home for many rising mixed martial artists vying for an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contract. Many have praised the series and believe it’s a more effective way for the UFC to nab prospects than “The Ultimate Fighter.”
DWTNCS Season 3, Episode 1 Card Revealed
The UFC has announced the full card for DWTNCS season three, episode one:
- Punahele Soriano vs. Jamie Pickett
- Leon Shahbazyan vs. Brok Weaver
- Hannah Goldy vs. Kali Robbins
- Bill Algeo vs. Brendan Loughnane
- Yorgan De Castro vs. Alton Meeks
DWTNCS will air on ESPN+. For the previous two seasons, the series had aired on UFC Fight Pass.
The series has seen fighters such as Sean O’Malley, Matt Frevola, Devonte Smith, Antonina Shevchenko, Maycee Barber, Sodiq Yusuff, and more earn UFC contracts. Even fighters who weren’t offered deals initially have been brought in later such as Kevin Holland. Others were given development contracts.
