The main card of the first event of Contender Series is already defined, so UFC made it official to the public. During the UFC Fight Island 2 broadcast, the trailer was unveiled that will feature the stellar fight between Cameron Church and Jose Flores, a massive fight that can be seen in weeks. The first of them has beaten all his rivals before reaching the decision, while the second gets a new opportunity after his stint in the program in 2017. As such, he is also on a two-win streak, where he beat Eduardo Bustillos and Clarence Brown.
As part of the information released in the last hours, Luis Rodriguez and Bentley Syler will have the opportunity to obtain a contract with UFC. The Aztec will face Jerome Rivera, while the Bolivian returns to Contender Series a year later to face Kenny Cross, the Lights Out Championship champion. In this way, both play a lot for their future. If they manage to impress Dana White, which happened last weekend with Dolidze, they could stay linked.
There is great expectation
Roman Dolidze debuted in the octagon of UFC with a spectacular technical knockout over Khadis Ibragimov, in the stellar fight of the UFC Fight Island 2 preliminaries. The Georgia native reached the prestigious promotion with a record of 6-0 and, after having won his last three contests via knockout, his Opponent came from losing his last two matches. The latter was going to bid to recover from a bad streak, which a shocking knee to his face did not allow.
