Posted by at 12:33 pm on July 5, 2017

UFC has set a premiere date for its new show, The Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series. The two-and-a-half hour show will premiere July 11 on UFC Fight Pass, the mixed martial arts organization’s subscription video service.

Hosted by UFC president White, “Contender Series” will feature five fights per episode in a variety of weight classes. The fights will be regulated by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Competitors will be effectively auditioning for slots as UFC fighters. At the end of each episode, white will decide whether to offer any of the fighters a UFC contract. Some episodes will see contracts offered to multiple fighters, while other episodes could see no contracts offered.

Previous UFC series The Ultimate Fighter and Dana White: Lookin’ For A Fight will continue to be filmed. The launch of Contender Series marks an additional investment by UFC in its over-the-top offering Fight Pass.
