Dana White’s Contender Series: Week 7 Odds

Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series Odds

Earning a contract to fight in the UFC is a dream for mixed martial artists across the globe and that can be achieved with an impressive performance in Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. A summer sensation for the promotion recently, Season 5 kicked off on August 31 and we have the Dana White’s Contender Series odds here.

Through the first six weeks, there have been 25 contracts given out, including one to Carlos Candelario, who became the first fighter to earn a UFC contract despite losing a split decision.

Originally, fighters had to earn their way into the UFC as a prospect through The Ultimate Fighter but the Contender Series that began five years ago provides another avenue to fight in the Octagon – by impressing UFC president Dana White in a one-off fight.

Some notable names that have come through DWTNCS are: Sean O’Malley, Maycee Barber, Edmen Shahbazyan, Dan Ige, Geoff Neal and Greg Hardy.
