Dana White’s Contender Series is back this week with the season premiere of Season 6 on Tuesday, July 26. The four-match fight card will be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and serve as another opportunity for UFC president Dana White to scout talent, with participants then having the chance to earn contracts.
The first episode will be headlined by a middleweight bout featuring Ozzy Diaz (7-1) taking on Joe Pyfer (8-2). The card will also feature Alessandro Costa (10-2) facing Andres Luna Martinetti (12-0) in a flyweight bout, Dennis Buzukja (7-2) facing Kaleio Romero (6-1) in a featherweight bout, and Anton Turkalj (7-0) facing Acacio dos Santos (14-4) in a light heavyweight bout. The fight between Farid Basharat and Willian Souza was canceled due to Souza missing weight by 10 pounds.
