    LINK to the broadcast on Fight Pass

    If you do not have Fight Pass and only want to watch the Contender Series, a summer Season Pass is currently being sold by the UFC for a discounted $12.99 here, it gives you 10 weeks of FP.

    For those of you new to the series, every Tuesday from June 12th until August 7th, with July 3rd off, top prospects and former UFC fighters will compete in a five-fight card with the opportunity to win a UFC contract. Some events, only one winner gets a contract, and others, multiple fighters are awarded that elusive contract.

    What? Snoopcast was way better than Yves Edwards. Snoop and Faber had an incredible chemistry.

    Felder wasn't bad.

    I actually just read that Bisping will have the first four cards, and Felder will have the last four after he fights Vick in Boise. No Edwards this season, but that's expected, because he's a WSOF commentator now and they have a busy season ahead.

    Sure I could just use search function... but why not be like the rest. When does Man Zant fight... Have to give the guy credit. Using your girl/boy friend celebrity to gain fame is the American Way...

    Edit. Plus, don't even know his name. Think he goes by the boyfriend of Paige... SMH

    Austin Vanderford, and he's fighting on July 17th on Week 5 against Angelo Trevino, a guy from TAM.

    A few thoughts - either it was expensive to hire him to call the fights, way more than anyone else would cost. Or, a result of the blowback from his criticism of UFC fighters, where some called for him to be removed?

    I forgot about snoopcast
    They should have at least replaced it with another alternate commentary.

    I gotta listen to these guys trying too hard to be insightful now

    It's gotta be rough for someone like Hardy who went from making millions per year in the NFL to hoping to get a $10K/$10K contract. Even that Lane guy he's fighting got like $400K a year (think that was the NFL min salary during his time) to basically stand on the sidelines. Ouch.
