Season 2 of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series begins tonight and there are a couple of major story lines already brewing.
First off, the days of the Snoopcast are officially over. The team of Snoop Dogg and Urijah Faber is a no go this year after things started off hot with the secondary UFC Fight Pass commentary team but fizzled out in the later episodes — members of the UFC roster were very vocal of their displeasure with Snoop due to some of his comments.
The recently retired Michael Bisping will provide color commentary to kick off this season alongside play-by-play man Brandon Fitzgerald.
On tonight’s debut episode, former NFL Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy will make his professional mixed martial arts debut against another retired NFL defensive end in Austen Lane. Hardy’s domestic violence issues continue to be brought to the forefront as he is being brought back into the public eye.
Hardy emerged victorious in all 3 of his amateur MMA bouts by way of 1st round KO. Lane, on the other hand, has won all 9 of his combined pro and amateur fights via 1st round KO.
