Dana White's Contender Series, Season 6 enters its final stages. The UFC has recently begun recruiting fighters and speeding up the lineup for the 2022 installment of the popular development series, with plans to relaunch around the July timeline.

The sixth season of Dana White's Contender Series is expected to begin this summer. Because on Tuesday, the UFC-owned and controlled sub-promotion received a license from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) to hold events from July 26 to September. 27 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas. If one episode is aired per week, that means there will be a total of 10 episodes for the upcoming season.

DWCS debuted in 2017 with an opening season of eight episodes. Season 2 aired in 2018 with eight episodes, followed by three episodes DWCS: Brasil. While in 2019, 2020 and 021, DWCS was increased to 10 installments.

Each season, the number of signed fighters has increased. So far, the show has produced notable UFC celebrities, including Sean O'Malley, Messi Barber, Geoff Neal, Ryan Spin, Sodak Youssef, Jamehl Hill, Tyla Santos, Johnny Walker, Alex Perez, and Marina Rodriguez.

The number of UFC contracts awarded through promotional brass has increased with each passing season.

Season 5 = 39 contracts (10 episodes)

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

Although the promotion has not yet made an official announcement regarding the upcoming season, the participation of various fighters has been confirmed.

Dana White's Contender Series, Season 6 in which many winners will have the opportunity to advance to the UFC. Notable is Göteborg, Sweden.

Light Heavyweight | 25 | Göteborg, Sweden | 7-0 | Winning Series: 7 | 5 KO / TKOs, 2 submissions

Turklak had to fight in the Contender series last season but was stopped by visa issues. In his last outing, he won with the High Light Rail Knockout. Earlier, he defeated Abu Aslan, which is a solid possibility. Turkalj has a 100% elimination rate, is very well rounded and is the person who will be followed by the UFC. In my opinion, Tarklej is essential for the show. Thinking back to last season, it should be mixed again this season.

The list will be updated in the coming days .
