While there wasn’t necessarily one big name drawing everyone’s attention at Dana White’s Contender Series 10, there certainly were quite a few names you’ll want to learn.
This past Tuesday, Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series returned to The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas, and the UFC boss wound up awarding a record four UFC contracts on the night.
Included among those were headliner Matt Sayles (7-1), who picked up an impressive first-round TKO win over a previously unbeaten Yazan Hajeh (6-1).
Dana White’s Contender Series broadcaster and former UFC champion Michael Bisping liked what he saw from the performance.
“It was a clinical performance,” Bisping said. “Cool, calm and collected, dropping Hajeh with a right hand, followed it up, took the mount. Ground and pound, beautiful stoppage. Beautiful finish. The referee had no choice but to stop this fight.
“It was like he’d been here 1,000 times. He didn’t rush it. He wasn’t swinging wildly. He wasn’t just trying to win by using aggression. He was calm. He picked his shots, and he used them. Man, they were beautiful. They were deadly.”
Anthony Hernandez (7-0) also earned a UFC deal, keeping his record perfect with a 40-second TKO win over Jordan Wright (9-1). Not only did the victory secure the contract for Hernandez, it also fulfilled his father’s dying wish, adding emotion to an already special night.
“As fighters, we all have our journeys, and to see what he went through and to see what his father said – and the fact that he credits his father for getting him into fighting in the first place – was a very powerful thing,” Bisping said.
