The UFC announced more than just some high profile fights on Friday, as the promotion’s reporting it will be running a new, weekly fight card on Tuesday nights.
The series will be called “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender”, and each episode will feature five fights, showcasing up-and-coming talent (as per a report from MMA Fighting). Veteran fighters will also be competing for a chance to return to bigger, UFC cards.
The show, which will be taped live in front of a closed studio audience in Las Vegas, will begin airing on UFC Fight Pass, July 11th.
The report also notes that the bouts will not be exhibitions, and will count towards a fighter’s pro record.
It sounds intriguing no?
