Week five of Dana White’s Contenders series arrives on Tuesday, August 23 with several familiar names on the cards.
In the women’s strawweight bout, Invicta FC alumnus Denise Gomes, who completed UFC vet Milana Dudieva earlier this year, got a big show. Chance. Brazil’s Gomez is paired with another Brazilian rising star, Reana Amanda, who is on a four-match winning streak.
Anyone who caught DWCS last fall might also recognize Errison Ferreira. The flyweight won the Contenders series last season without getting a contract. He hasn’t fought since then and Ferreira was brought back to fight Jesus Santos Aguilar on Tuesday – and nearly lost his weight, overtaking Monday’s first attempt the limit is 0.5 lbs.
A second attempt after some extra weight loss would see Ferreira move below the flyweight limit, but it remains to be seen whether a tough weight loss will put him in a fight.
