Live Results: DWTNCS S2, Week 6 – Newell Vs. Munoz

Tuesday, July 24th 2018 – UFC Training Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada

Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series returns for week 6 with possibly the most anticipated headliner of the season. ‘Notorious’ Nick Newell, who was born with congenital amputation of his left arm, gets his crack at a UFC roster spot. The question has been, is a ‘tryout’ of sorts even necessary? Newell is 14-1, with two knockouts and nine submissions and a former title challenger of then-WSOF champion and current UFC star Justin Gaethje, which is his only loss. Newell will face undefeated lightweight Alex Munoz.

The card kicks off at @ 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT on UFC Fight Pass.
