Three fighters from Dana White‘s Tuesday Night Contender Series were awarded UFC contracts for their performances in the eighth week of the weekly search for new talent. Matt Frevola, Lauren Mueller and Allen Crowder earned their opportunity to compete on mixed martial arts’ biggest stage.

“I thought Crowder did a great job. I’m going to bring in Crowder. We need heavyweights, so we’re going to give him a shot. He’s 9-2 now. The ladies fight, both fighters showed a ton of heart. Mueller took this fight on a week’s notice, and now she’s 4-0. So we’re going to take her too,” said White following the event. ”
