Tonight (June 26th) is week three 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. Last week saw four contracts handed out for the first time in the series’ short history.
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 women’s flyweight bout between Antonina Shevchenko and short notice replacement Jaimee Nievera. Antonina is the sister of current top contender and presumptive next UFC women’s flyweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko.
