Following Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series 12 last night, two more fighters were awarded UFC contracts.
That included co-main event fighter Bevon Lewis who took out Alton Cunningham via TKO at just 3.01mins of the first round.
The middleweight had the edge in the early striking exchange with Cunningham and eventually dropped him with a knee, and after he got back to his feet it wasn’t long before another knee strike had him hurt and saw the fight brought to a conclusion, extending Lewis’ record to 6-0.
Earlier in the card, Jordan Espinosa also earned a UFC contract after his last gasp TKO victory over Riley Dutro.
This was a hard fought, competitive flyweight battle, but it was Espinosa who took the bull by the horns in the final round, hurting Dutro with a right hand and then putting him down with a head kick, and then continued to put it on him when got back upright, putting him down again before the referee finally brought an end to the fight with just two seconds remaning.
