An incredibly fruitful season of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) continues tonight (Tues., Aug. 23, 2022) at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+ with another episode heavy on international talent.

Last week’s Episode 5 became the third episode this season in which all five winners earned promotional contracts. Denise Gomes was the only one of the lot to go the distance, as Cameron Saaiman landed a vicious one-hitter quitter, Jesus Santos Aguilar snatched up a tight guillotine, Darrius Flowers separated Amiran Gogoladze’s shoulder with a slam (watch it), and Michael Parkin ended a frantic main event in 1:57 via rear-naked choke.

Meanwhile, 22-year-old Yusaku Kinoshita (5-1) fights 6’4” Jose Henrique (5-0) in the Welterweight featured attraction. One fight prior, unbeaten Middleweights Matej Penaz (6-0) and Seriques Dumas (6-0) square off at 205, while Rodrigo Lidio (12-2) and Mateusz Rebecki (15-1) meet in a Lightweight tussle originally planned for Week 3. The evening’s sole women’s fight sees Russia’s Viktoriya Dudakova (5-0) take on Brazil’s Maria Silva (8-0), while former TKO Featherweight champion, Alex Morgan (11-4), opens the card opposite reigning CFFC kingpin, Blake Bilder (6-0-1).
