    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 $1.99 here, it gives you a week 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.

    Also, sad to say, this is the final event of DWTNCS this year.

    Expect to see all of the fighters win or lose within the next year.

    That's how it goes.

    There will be the Brazilian version of the series that they are filming this week tape delayed to September, but it won't be live, and no betting odds available either, not to mention it is probably in Portuguese with English sub-titles on Fight Pass eventually, so not as much fun.

    I didn't know the bolded part that it was tape delayed. How can they broadcast official fights well after they happen (days/weeks/months), unless they're only tape delayed by a few hours and the results are posted and we just have to avoid spoilers.

    I really enjoy not knowing anything about these fighters.

    Nunchuckfu vs Beard is the fight I'm excited for, based on the image in OP

    I interviewed Hardy while he was training for this fight. He's a phenomenal athlete.

    Considering how liberally they've been handing out contracts these later episodes, Hardy would undoubtedly have gained one if he hadn't fought before they drastically lowered their standards.

    Greg probably could have said no to this second fight, and ended up with a good contract, ufc or not.
