Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series Week 7 Results

Once again, Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series returns to the UFC Gym in Las Vegas and can be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass.

Now in week seven of the show, the main event featured Ultimate Fighter season 19 cast member Anton Berzin taking on 25-year-old Texan Kennedy Nzechukwu. Berzin is the CFFC light heavyweight champion.

The card is stacked stop to bottom to include a fight between Pennsylvania’s top ranked lightweight Mark Cherico taking on Mike Santiago.  Cherico, who hails from Pittsburgh was looking not only a win and UFC contract, but also a quick turnaround that will put him on the upcoming UFC Pittsburgh fight card next month.  Unfortunately for him however things did not go his way and Santiago will get a UFC shot.
