    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.

    Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series was certainly a mouthful..

    But ever since they dropped "Tuesday Night" I've forgotten to watch it live.

    This card may produce some interesting fights but not a lot of good prospects.

    Hunter Azure is probably the best. He's a really big BW. Very good but not elite wrestling. His problem is that he blocks kicks and punches with his chin.

    That's what you get for disrespecting the grappling pandemonium that is Ryan Hall vs Darren Elkins!
