UFC ‘Contender Series’ results: Live stream play-by-play updates – Season 5, Ep. 9

We are nearing the end of the fifth season of Dana White’s “Contender Series,” but we are far from over as another dozen aspiring mixed martial arts (MMA) are ready to show their stuff on ESPN + tonight. (Tuesday, October 26, 2021).

Four more hopefuls joined the world’s largest wrestling promotion last week. Pedro Falcao and Armen Petrosyan scored brutal knockouts, Caio Borralho made it 2-0 on the show with a first-round finish after a three-week turnaround, and Jonny Parsons scored a sizable split decision victory in the main event.

As has become a tradition for this series, this week we are seeing an almost entirely international cast. Brazil’s Jansey Silva (7-1) faces Russia’s Gadzhi Omargadzhiev (12-0) in the middleweight main event, while co-feature Mexico vs. China faces UWC bantamweight champion Christian Quinonez (15-3) against WLF veteran Xiao Long (16). -6). At bantamweight, Javid Basharat (10-0) faces Oron Kahlon (16-0), who dropped three pounds yesterday.

The only women’s fight of the night sees Yan Qiqui (11-3) take on Karine Silva. 30 pounds north, Manuel Torres (11-2) faces Kolton Englund (9-3), and Olivier Murad (5-0) fights Xie Bin in the first featherweight match.
