If performance rewards are awarded at Dana White’s Contender Series, the competition will be fierce with $ 50,000 checks on Week 8 of Season 4. But UFC contracts are rewards and each winner gets one. panels after a full night of completion.
Headliner Carlos Ulberg, Ignacio Bahamondes, Luis Saldana and Jared Vanderaa all received contracts thanks to their wins on Wednesday night at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The first three boxers also added impressive footage to their standout reel, leaving UFC President Dana White in awe with the knockout ending.
Ulberg was the last to put his rival on the frame and the latest City Kickboxing product has made a splash in the smaller octagon. The former football player and model intercepted Bruno Oliveira with a left hook extending his unbeaten streak to three professional matches.
The test is over.
Later, Ulberg̵7;s training partners and Israeli heads Adesanya and Brad Riddell joined the celebration of his new UFC contract.
Bahamondes second after the ape Anderson Silva
In the title of tie for first place, weightweightweight Ignacio Bahamondes has twice in a row won outstanding kicks in front of goal, stopping Edson Gomez with a header at 2:31 of the second half.
Gomez is an opponent in the game, at least initially. What he lacks in stature, he makes up for in heart, showcasing beautiful head movements and hard shots that at least make Bahamondes pause. But as he begins to get tired, gasping in the quiet APEX center, Bahamondes refuses to give up, using his height and reach to land at will. It seems his punches could be a hit, but after knocking down his opponent, he captured the kick that will forever appear on his standout reel.
Saldana vs Murdock of Team Alpha Male
Luis Saldana looked set to be on his way to a comfortable win over Vince Murdock. Then he increased the tempo and had a striking finish.
When a listless Murdock tried one last time to grab his points, Saldana kicked him in the face, twice, and grabbed a TKO in the first minute of the final frame. Injury time is officially 44 seconds for the 3rd Half.
The test is finished.
Saldana’s kicks made an impact for much of the game. His height and reach put him in a favorable position to snip the compact Murdock, who entered the cage after almost two years of leaving the cage due to a rare brain condition that required a dangerous surgery. The playing time was shown in Murdock’s performance as he struggled to strike steadily, not attack much inside or use wrestling to neutralize his opponent’s natural advantage.
As the fight took place in the deep water, Saldana looked more and more at ease as he attacked Murdock with swing and side kicks. Then there are scenes that conclude a fight placing a contract under his pen.
It took Vanderaa several minutes to finish the shot
In the four days it was announced, Harry Hunsucker threw the sink at Jared Vanderaa. But what
The start-up paired the 260-pound natural weight class at Vanderaa with Harry Hunsucker, a boxer who looked as if he could compete at 205 pounds. After four days of announcement, Hunsucker got the right idea and jumped into the fence. Unfortunately for him, Vanderaa’s head is a lot stiffer than what he haggled for, and nothing can make up for his size deficit. When Vanderaa caught a few bolos, he simply smashed his opium or got tied up. And when Hunsucker threw a kimura against the fence, he put the smaller boxer on the carpet and smashed it away until referee Jason Herzog called it out.
