Dana White’s Contender Series is gearing up for another season of exciting fights and talented prospects.
During Saturday’s UFC Vegas 34 broadcast, the lineup was officially announced for the Week 3 card for the Contender Series, which takes place on Sept. 14 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
The card is headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Jailton Almeida (13-2) and Nasrudin Nasrudinov (9-0). Almeida rides an eight-fight winning streak into his upcoming meeting with the undefeated Russian.
The co-main event also features a pair of undefeated fighters with identical 5-0 records as Stipe Miocic teammate Mo Miller takes on Brandon Lewis in a bantamweight contest.
Miller made waves in his most recent outing this past December with a dominant performance against Regivaldo Carvalho at LFA 96 that saw him repeatedly slam Carvalho en route to the finish.
Miller, 29, currently trains with Miocic’s Strong Style Fight Team in Cleveland.
