Randall Wallace replaces Gabriel Checco in Dana White Contenders Series 6 headliner

Gabriel Checco’s loss is Randall Wallace’s gain.

Wallace on Tuesday will fight for a potential UFC contract in the Dana White’s Contender Series 6 headliner after Checco withdrew for the second time this season.

Wallace will face Charles Byrd at The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas of the sixth installment of the series, which will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.

Wallace (15-6) takes the fight on just days’ notice and enters on a three-fight winning streak, with all three victories coming by way of stoppage.

Byrd (8-4) gets his second chance at DWCS. At Dana White’s Contender Series 1 in July, he choked out Jamie Pickett with an arm-triangle – and a violent result. Despite the finish, he didn’t get a contract, so has another shot at it next week. The Legacy FC veteran from Texas has six of his eight career wins by stoppage.

With the change, the DWCS 6 lineup now includes:

  • Charles Byrd vs. Randall Wallace
  • Grant Dawson vs. Adrian Diaz
  • Cameron Olson vs. Karl Reed
  • Jamie Alvarez vs. Martin Day
  • Jamie Colleen vs. Tiffany Masters
