The penultimate episode of Dana White’s Contender Series season six arrives this Tuesday, with some international flavor capping off the night.
The featured fight at DWCS 55 is expected to feature Italy’s Leon Aliu up against Brunno Ferreira of Brazil. Ferreira boasted an undefeated record of 8-0 to start the night, with a 100% finish rate to boot. Italian Aliu was also a proven finisher, with just a single loss as a pro.
Returning to the Contender Series this Tuesday night, meanwhile, was heavyweight Austen Lane. Lane might be best remembered as former NFL star Greg Hardy’s first opponent on DWCS in 2019. An NFL vet himself, Lane had gone on to post a 7-2 record following the Hardy fight, with an 11-3 record overall and four straight wins.
Lane was paired up with Brazil’s Richard Jacobi, who had yet to taste defeat as a pro.
The talk of the week, however, would no doubt be centered around Raul Rosas Jr. The Mexican bantamweight known as “El Nino Problema” was getting his first look on the show, at just 17-years old.
