Two fighters were given UFC contracts, Alonzo Menifield and Greg Hardy. However, Hardy’s may be more developmental – he may sign a UFC contract, but fight in pro shows for a time before being dropped into the deep waters of the UFC heavyweight division.
And there was some bafflement that this didn’ get a contract.
What a knockout! “The Action Man” Chris Curtis more than lives up to his nickname, felling Sean Lally in the third with this wonderful kick! A champion in three different promotions, you have to think he gets a contract. #DWTNCS #ContenderSeries pic.twitter.com/7RtMOO5JyQ
