The week’s installment of Dana White’s Contender Series Season 6 includes a Cage Warriors champion, a rising Invicta FC talent, and an LFA and Fury FC alum making his second appearance on DWCS.
The Cage Warriors champ in question would be bantamweight champion Jack Cartwright, taking on the aforementioned LFA/Fury FC alum Jose Johnson. Johnson last appeared on the Contender Series in 2020, losing a decision against Ronnie Lawrence. Lawrence is now in the UFC, while Johnson is hoping to finally break in after an appearance on Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight also went south.
As for Cartwright, many felt he could have gone straight to the UFC proper, but instead he’ll battle it out Tuesday.
So too will Hailey Cowan, another talent that arguably could have gone direct to the UFC. She’s been paired up with Brazil’s Claudia Leite.
Dana White’s Contender Series 50 gets underway at 8PM ET, airing on ESPN+ in the U.S., and UFC Fight Pass internationally. Full results from the event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada can be found below.
