When Will Season Four Of Dana White’s Contender Series Take Place?
A star-making series will look to make its return, albeit later than usual.
According to MMA Junkie, Dana White’s Contender Series will be looking to air in August, and end in September. The premier episode is expected for August 4 and will air on Tuesday’s from the UFC’s APEX Center in Las Vegas. This comes after the fourth season was supposed to start on June 23 before the coronavirus pandemic altered plans.
A normal season has consisted of ten episodes, but it is unsure if this season will follow suit. Additionally, it was announced that Adrian Yanez, Josh Parisian, Leomana Martinez, Joseph Pyfer, Chad Johnson, and Jerome Rivera will be competing on the program. Some fighters who were meant to fight during the series have now been signed by the UFC as a result of being late-replacement fighters. Those fighters include Brandon Royval, Anthony Ivy, and Kyle Daukaus.
Starting in 2017, the goal of Dana White’s Contender Series is to secure talent for the UFC. No fighter competing will have an existing UFC contract. White will then sign a fighter if they impress at any point. Young fighters and veterans have been signed, including Sean O’Malley, Karl Roberson, Antonina Shevchenko, Alex Perez, Ryan Spann, and former NFL star Greg Hardy.
When it returns, the series will air on UFC Fight Pass.
