After a break in between this week’s Contender Series episode and the last episode which took place in September, we finally get ready for another fun night of fights this time not on Tuesday but Wednesday.
So far through seven weeks of this season on the Contender Series, we have seen 26 out of 33 fighters who won their fights receive contracts to fight in the UFC. With multiple fighters already making their debuts this year, this season more than any can propel you right into the UFC spotlight with a win.
This week coming back we have a four-fight main card and we will see if the contracts keep rolling in like the first part of this season or take a decline. The four-fight main card is as listed below.
Note: The scheduled bout between Gloria de Paula and Pauline Macias was postponed until Nov. 17 due to a positive COVID test for de Paula. She announced the postponement on her personal Instagram.
