DANA WHITE’S CONTENDER SERIES season 2 kicked off; and did so with a BANG. Four of the five fights were finishes. It started off with KEVIN HOLLAND defeating WILL SANTIAGO via unanimous decision. If Dana wasn’t pleased with MIKE JACKSON‘s antics vs CM PUNK. He may not have been pleased here either. Kevin pressed the action and despite throwing from different angles; taunted Will. Kevin landed a jumping knee that opened a cut on Will’s left eye. Finally in the third Will landed a solid left that momentarily dropped Holland. Back on the feet the assault and taunting continued till the final horn. RICO DISCIULLO opened up attempting multiple highlight finishes to no avail vs MONTEL JACKSON. Montel was happy to counter strike; dropping Rico with a strong flurry. Montel went down after him and landed an illegal elbow; forcing referee HERB DEAN to take a point away. Rico started finding some success with his kicking game. Montel responded with a kick to the groin. Rico continued to kick with Montel striking and getting takedowns. Herb Dean was forced to take another point from Jackson after an eye poke. Jackson then came with a full blitz of strikes and kicks that ended the bout via TKO 2:15 of round 3.

Former NFL players GREG HARDY and AUSTIN LANE was the fight many had their eyes on. And for those it was imperative NOT to blink. Both threw heavy hands immediately with Hardy getting an advantage. A vicious right hand dropped Lane. When he bounced back up he was met with an equal left that finished the action via KO at just 57 seconds. Greg wound up getting a UFC contract on a developmental level.  CHRIS CURTIS crisply moved in and out and side to side landing at will on  SEAN LALLY. Sean showed some heart eating the shots he did. Sean started coming forward throwing his own attack. But a hook kick landed solid putting Sean on the mat where Chris landed some GNP till the KO came at 1:37 of round 3.

ALONZO MENIFIELD remained undefeated and did so super fast. DASHAWN BOATWRIGHT exchanged shots with Alonzo in the center of the cage. Dashawn went for a high kick just as Alonzo moved forward putting Boatwright down. Menifield went down after him, slaying him with GNP till referee MARK SMITH stopped the fight via TKO just 8 seconds in. It was Alonzo’s 2nd time on the show and this time he too got a contract.
