Another episode of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series comes to a close moments ago. A great night of fights that produced 3 finishes, one unanimous decision and one split decision from The UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Billy Quarantillo, Jamahal Hill, and Sean Woodson are all signing their contracts as we speak.
All three winners have a very unique thing in common, they all took Dana’s breath away in the 2nd round of their respective fights after not faring overly well in the 1st. White was impressed with the killer instinct of Quarantillo, the sheer will of Hill, and the spirit and style of Woodson who took the fight on five days notice and had the only walk-off knockout of the night with a brutal jump knee.
The UFC found 3 really talented and octagon ready fighters tonight and all 3 are expected to make their octagon debuts before the end of the year.
Ramazan Kuramagomedov def. Jordan Williams via split decision (27-30, 29-28, 29-28)
Sean Woodson def. Terrance McKinney via knockout (knee) – Round 2, 1:49
J.J. Okanovich def. Christian Lohsen via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Jamahal Hill def. Alexander Poppeck via TKO (punches) – Round 2, 4:29
Billy Quarantillo def. Kamuela Kirk via TKO (punches) – Round 3, 0:22
