UFC officials recently revealed the five-fight lineup for “Dana White’s Contender Series: Week 3,” which takes place July 25 at The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas and streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
Spann (10-4) was victorious in his most recent outing, scoring a 20-second submission win over Roman Pizzolato at a World Fighting Championships event in Louisiana. Meanwhile, Roberson (4-0) is undefeated in the first four fights of his career, though he endured nearly two years off between his first two wins in 2015 and his most recent two, which came in April and May of this year.
Additional matchups include welterweights Jason Jackson (7-2) vs. Kyle Stewart (6-0), middleweights Gabriel Checco (10-2) vs. Chase Waldon (11-2), light heavyweights Daniel Jolly (5-2) vs. Alonzo Menifield (3-0) and featherweights Dan Ige (7-1) vs. Luis Gomez (3-0).
Jolly is the only one who boasts UFC experience. “The Werewolf of Texas” came to the promotion in 2015 as an undefeated prospect but suffered first-round knockout losses to Misha Cirkunov and Khalil Rountree and now looks to fight his way back to the octagon.
The “Dana White’s Contender Series: Week 3” lineup includes:
- Ryan Spann vs. Karl Roberson
- Jason Jackson vs. Kyle Stewart
- Gabriel Checco vs. Chase Waldon
- Daniel Jolly vs. Alonzo Menifield
- Dan Ige vs. Luis Gomez
