Season 6 of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) rolls on tonight (Tues., Aug. 16, 2022) with Episode 4, which sees international talent take center stage at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+.

Though it only produced two finishes, last week’s episode resulted in three UFC call-ups and one invitation to return to the program. Erik Silva’s 92-second demolition job of Anvar Boyanazarov, Jamal Pogues’ second DWCS victory, and Clayton Carpenter’s gritty decision over Edgar Chairez all left the winners Octagon-bound, while Bo Nickal will return on Sept. 27, 2022, after scoring a 62-second submission (watch highlights).

Thomas Paull (11-3) faces Argentine finisher Esteban Ribovics (10-0) in the Lightweight main event, while Middleweight knockout artist Claudio Ribeiro (9-2) meets Lux Fight League champ Ivan Valenzuela (8-1) in the card’s only bout above 155. Cage Warriors champ Jack Cartwright (10-0) fights the returning Jose Johnson (14-7) at 135, which also hosts a bout betwene Hailey Cowan (6-2) and Claudia Leite (7-2). Finally, Fury FC vet Nazim Sadykhov (6-1) opens the show against Afghanistan’s Ahmad Suhail Hassanzada (-91).
