The end is nigh. Dana White’s Contender Series Season 5 wraps up this Tuesday night. Five final fights to see who will make it to the UFC — and whose dreams will be dashed. The latest installment of DWCS has one returning fighter, Canaan Kawaihae, looking at a second chance, after first appearing on the show in 2018. Outside of that, there are two undefeated Canadians fighting on the card. Achilles Estremadura and Yohan Lainesse are both looking to win big on the show this year, after Jasmine Jasudavicius, Chad Anheliger, and Mike Malott earned contracts earlier in the season.

One last week, one last set of breakdowns. Let’s get to it!

There wasn’t enough tape to get an assessment at all on Maheshate. Estremadura on the other hand I like a lot and is someone that has tons of potential. The guys he’s been fighting are low-level but have been shown out. And he’s succeeding against guys with more experience.

His immense knockout power is where Estremadura shines. He has gone the distance three times and all three times it has been five rounds. Cardio is definitely not a concern. Not only is he a credible wrestler his takedown defense is solid. Estremadura can wrestle and grapple both but tends to jab, rip the body, and chin checks his opponents on the feet.

Of the small clips I have seen on Maheshate, he looks competent — at least at striking. Looks like he’s an output guy with aggression. No matter what I’m extremely confident in Estremadura. He may be the next big thing out of Canada. Estremadura wins by TKO/KO at +140 is the bet to make. Don’t see it going any other way.
