LIVE! UFC ‘Contender Series’ Results, Streaming Play-By-Play Updates

It’s that time of year again.

Dana White’s “Contender Series” returns to the ESPN+ airwaves tonight (Tues., Aug. 31, 2021) for a fifth season, starting with a largely international cast of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC hopefuls).

The Light Heavyweight main event pits undefeated Brave CF champion Azamat Murzakanov (9-0) against Brazil’s Matheus Scheffel (14-6), who claimed Future FC gold in his most recent effort. Down at Featherweight, Diego Lopes (19-3) steps up on short notice to put his seven-fight winning streak on the line against Joanderson Brito (11-2-1). LFA Flyweight champ Victor Altamirano (9-1) will be also in action against late replacement Carlos Candelario (8-0), while Mississippi’s A.J. Fletcher (8-0) faces Italy’s Leonardo Damiani (10-2-1)

The event previously saw Lukasz Brzeski meet Dylan Potter in the opener, but the bout got rescheduled over the weekend.
