Dana White’s Contender Series returned for another season this week as the UFC attempts to find some of the top up-and-coming prospects in mixed martial arts. The season will air weekly on ESPN+.

Season 5 continues on Tuesday night with Dana White’s Contender Series 43 in week seven. At the end of the night, if any fighters impress UFC President Dana White enough, they will be awarded a UFC contract.

In the featured bout, top bantamweight prospects go head-to-head when Reyes Cortez (5-1) faces off against undefeated Christian Rodriguez (5-0) out of Roufusport MMA.

Other bouts will be held in the heavyweight, lightweight, flyweight, and strawweight divisions.

Ahead of Tuesday night’s fights, all of the fighters had to step onto the scale at the UFC host hotel for the official weigh-ins in Las Vegas. The fights will take place on Tuesday at the UFC Apex.
