Tonight (June 19th) is week two of the second season of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, which will highlight up-and-coming talent as well as some former UFC fighters looking for a second crack at the big time. Winners aren’t guaranteed a UFC contract, but it certainly helps to both win and impress at the same time.
Bloody Elbow is your place for live discussion of this five-fight event at The Ultimate Fighter gym in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event is a featherweight bout between Matt Sayles and Yazan Hajeh, who is looking to become the first Palestine-born fighter to make it to the UFC.
