The penultimate episode of Dana White’s Contender Series season six arrives this Tuesday, with some international flavors rounding out the evening.
The featured fight at DWCS 55 is expected to feature Italy’s Leon Aliu vs. Brazil’s Bruno Ferreira. Ferreira boasted an undefeated record of 8-0 heading into the night, with a 100% finish mark. Italy’s Aliu was also a proven finisher with only one loss as a pro.
Meanwhile, returning to the Contender Series this Tuesday night was Austin Lane at heavyweight. Lane may be best remembered as former NFL star Greg Hardy’s first opponent at the DWCS in 2019. An NFL veteran himself, Lane had posted a 7-2 record following the fight with Hardy, with an 11-3 overall record and four straight win.
Lane was paired with Brazilian Richard Jacobi, who had yet to taste a loss as a professional.
The talk of the week, however, will no doubt center around Raul Rosas Jr. The Mexican rooster known as “El Nino Problema” first appeared on the show when he was only 17 years old.
Dana White’s Contender Series 55 weigh-ins begin Monday in Las Vegas. Complete results can be found below as of 12:00 PM ET.
