ⓘ Dana Whites Contender Series
Dana Whites Contender Series formerly named Dana Whites Tuesday Night Contender Series is an American mixed martial arts promotion. In May 2017, the UFC announced White would hold the competition weekly on UFC Fight Pass. As with the earlier web series Looking for a Fight, the goal of the series is for White to scout talent for the UFC. Similar to The Ultimate Fighter none of the fighters involved will have existing UFC contracts. Licensed separately from the UFC with Dana White applying for a promoters licence, it was stated ahead of the license being approved that" this is not the UFC, this is not the UFC brand, but instead a promotion that will allow up and coming fighters the chance to showcase their talents in hopes that one day they may compete in the UFC."
The first event was held on 11 July 2017. All events were held at the base of stream online of Las Vegas.
