Dana White's Contender Series 9 live results

LAS VEGAS – The second season of Dana White’s Contender Series kicks off tonight, and MMAjunkie is on the scene.

The event, which teakes place at The Utlimate Fighter Gym, begins at 8 p.m. ET and streams live on UFC Fight Pass.

The card is headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Dashawn Boatwright (3-0) and Alonzo Menifield (6-0), a Bellator, LFA and RFA veteran who won a fight against Daniel Jolly on Dana White’s Contender Series 3 in 2017, but didn’t get a contract. In the co-feature, CES MMA welterweight champion Chris Curtis (17-5)  meets Boston-based Sean Lally (8-2).

But without question, the most anticipated bout of the first week is between former NFL veterans Greg Hardy (0-0) and Austen Lane (4-0) at heavyweight. Hardy, a former All-Pro who has been training with American Top Team, made his amateur debut this past November and picked up a 32-second TKO win. Hardy landing a spot on the Contender Series has been met with controversy given his checkered past. He was convicted for assaulting his ex-girlfriend in July 2014, only to have the charges dropped after the alleged victim refused to testify in his appeal.
