    For those of you new to the series, every Tuesday from June 18th until August 20th, with July 2nd 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.

    You know who probably isn't in? Victor Reyna after he missed weight by seven pounds.

    A 36 years-old who debuted in 2007 and has only managed 9 fights in 12 years!

    Truly the high-octane, youngblood prospects that Dana is looking for!

    This season feels different. Last week that guy missed weight so badly he wasn't cleared to fight, this week one dude came in 7 pounds over, there's a 12-7 Hawaiian (who has won his last eight but he still has a tapout loss to Chris Avila on his record) and a 36-year-old. I don't know how best to characterize it but I'm paying close attention.

    Are you implying that there is dishonour in losing to Hawai Diaz, you villain!? :D

    But yeah, there definitively seems to have been a drop in quality.

    The guy I'm waiting for is LHW Herdem Alacabek (5-0) who fights in August. Since I've been watching his career since 2014 when he started in Sweden. Been with ATT for a long time.

    Yup. Avila's career hasn't really panned out like it could have.

    He has looked sensational in LFA. Three fights, I think three first-round finishes. I've got my eye on him too. Speaking of LFA guys, I was looking forward to Ramiz Brahimaj on this card but he got hurt.
