Season 6 of Dana White’s Contender Series continues on Tuesday, August 9, as 10 more competitors look to earn a contract in the UFC. Only one contract was offered in the season premiere, but last week’s fighters brought it, and all five winners left with contracts. This will be the third episode of the season, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
The card will kick off with the first women’s bout of the season. Sandra Lavado and Karolina Wojcik will square off in a women’s strawweight bout. Edgar Chairez will represent the flyweight division as he faces Clayton Carpenter. The night's third match will feature featherweights Erik Silva and Anvar Boynazarov duking it out.
Also on the card, Jamal Pogues returns to the Contender Series after being victorious in his fight in Season 3 but unable to impress enough to earn a contract. He will take on the Brazilian Paulo Renato Junior, who has won his last nine fights.
Bo Nickal and Zachary Borrego will face off in the main event as a showcase of two former collegiate athletes. Before their switches to MMA, Nickal was a National Champion Division 1 wrestler at Penn State, while Borrego played collegiate football at Angelo State University.
