    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 $8.99 here, it gives you ~6 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 on 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.

    That's more suspicious than it is impressive.

    Or go the American idol route. Have 3 judges give their scores. Brock- “He’s a piece of shit”

    I dunno, the way I figure, if they miss weight for this, they're never getting signed in a million years. They're going to be as on the money as they possibly can.

    Good fights tonight. I got a lot of respect for Aguilar. Glad he's getting his chance at joining the UFC. Sucks he couldn't just get the call instead of fighting a relatively unknown commodity. If you got bets, good luck on your plays and let's have some fun tonight with this one eh gents? Love these Tuesday cards.

    It's almost better to get the shot on the Contender series imo.

    Gives you exposure to the MMA fans and a chance to make a name for yourself.

    Cool, Matt Sayles is already fighting in the UFC. He was signed on Week 10, and he'll be fighting Sheymon Moraes on the 227 FP Prelims.

    Sort of feels like this batch of dudes has worse record than the previous events.

    Conspiracy to get Bevon into the UFC? Get that Jon Jones friend in there?

    I think it's just way too important to make weight on the show. You'll likely never be given another shot if you miss.

    Mustaki beat a guy called Socrates in his last bout. And the guy named Socrates isn't even Brazilian. :eek:

    What kind of last name is Mustaki anyways?
