The second installment of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders is set to kick off in less than 24 hours. If it’s anything like the show’s debut, it will not disappoint. In the show’s debut Dana decided to award two fighters with UFC contracts, we will see how this week’s fighters fair in the eye’s of the boss man tomorrow.
The biggest betting favorite on this card is Sean O’Malley at -221, the 7-0 Bantamweight is only 22 years old. He has only won via decision once, in his other six victories he finished by either KO or Submission. Look for O’Malley to make a definitive case that he is not too young for the big show as he fights to lock in a UFC contract.
In the main event: an even pick em! Casey Kenney (6-0-1) will square off with Cee Jay Hamilton (11-4). In what looks to be a striker vs. grappler matchup, Hamilton brings the striking while Kenney touts a submission heavy record. While I don’t have a take on predictions for these fights I do think that this series is a very exciting way to see the new UFC blood to get excited for. Don’t forget to check out the ridiculousness that is Snoop Dog commentary, it’s hilariously uninformative.
