Dana White’s Contender Series will return tonight for the first of its last three episodes of the year. Gloria de Paula tested positive for Covid-19 so her fight with Pauline Macias will be postponed to November 17th. Oscar Ivan Cota also had to withdraw from his fight with Jared Vanderaa. Vanderaa will now be fighting Henry Hunsucker. KB Bhullar was forced to withdraw from his bout with Bruno Oliveira. Oliveira will now be fighting 2-0, Carlos Ulberg.
DWCS Week 8 will be headlined by Carlos Ulberg taking on Bruno Silva. There will be a total of four fights on the card. It will be shown live on ESPN+ and will start at 8 PM/5 PM ETPT. Due to the lower number of fights on the card, it will be interesting to monitor how many fighters are awarded UFC contracts after the fights. Part of that, as always, will depend on how the fighters perform. But with only four fights, don’t be surprised to see four fighters offered contracts tonight if they score impressive victories.
