Last week, Phillip Hawes, Drako Rodriguez, Tafon Nchukwi, and Aliaskhab Khizriev earned contracts into the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Who will be the next set of fighters to earn that coveted deal on Tuesday of Dana White's Contender Series from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas?
The show is headlined by middleweights Gregory Rodrigues and Jordan Williams. After starting his career 1-2, Rodrigues (7-2) has rebounded with six consecutive wins. The six-year veteran last competed in December, knocking out Brandon Hester in the first round. Williams (8-3) returns to DWCS for the second time, losing a narrow split decision on Season 3 to Ramazan Kuramagomedov. Out of Williams' eight wins, seven have come via inside the distance.
The UFC president likes to see fighters go for the finish instead of playing safe. Rodrigues, Williams, and the eight other fighters competing on the show will get the opportunity to secure UFC contracts during Week 7 of the Contender Series.
