Dana White Offers Contracts To Three New Fighters

Dana White’s contender series has been a hit from day one. The level of performances in the series has been nothing short of extraordinary. The series has also been an excellent launch pad for current UFC stars such as Maycee Barber, Sean O’Malley, and Greg Hardy 

Dana White’s contender series 33 saw all fighters make weight without issue. Three fighters were awarded contracts on the night. The card saw Danyelle Wolf make her MMA debut. 

Danyelle Wolf makes a successful switch over to MMA

Wolf is a former team USA boxing champion, out of Wrightsville. The 37-year-old recently decided to switch over to UFC. For her first fight, she went up against Taneisha “Triple Threat” Tennant. 

 

Taneisha was undefeated and on a 3-0 winning streak going into the fight. Wolf managed to secure a win via unanimous decision over Tate and earned a contract to fight in the UFC in the process. 

Third time’s the charm for Jordan William

This was Williams’ third appearance on Dana White’s contender series. The first one hadn’t gone his way as it was declared a no contest. This was because he had tested positive for marijuana metabolites. His second chance had come in July of last year. He lost that bout to split decision against Kuramagomedov. 

However, Williams managed to turn it around the third time. In his fight against Rodrigues, William had Gregory hurt when Jordan landed a good punch, which he followed up with a barrage of punches before knocking Rodrigues out. In the process, he impressed White enough to earn himself a contract, on the third time of asking.

Collin Anglin looking to become a household name 

Anglin (8-1), following his unanimous decision win over Naimov, was awarded the third contract of the night. Anglin had started out slow and arguably lost the first round. However, he managed to come back strong and won the second and third round convincingly to earn his spot in the UFC.

In the post-fight interview, Anglin shared his thoughts with the reporters saying, “I was just having fun in there, first round I was kinda bummed out, but second and third round I was having a blast and just trying to take his f***ing head off.”
