Contender Series Weigh-in Results: All Competitors Hit Contracted Marks

For the first time in a few weeks, there were no major difficulties on the scales ahead of a Dana White’s Contender Series event.

All 10 athletes slated to compete on Week 8 of the latest season made weight on Monday. The Contender Series takes place on Tuesday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and airs on ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The card’s featured bout is a welterweight clash pitting Solomon Renfro (170 pounds) against Jonny Parsons (171). Parsons initially checked in at 171.5 pounds but was able to successfully make the contracted welterweight limit moments later.

Anchored at Team Tiger Schulmann, Renfro has been victorious in eight of nine professional outings, with his lone defeat coming at the hands of recent Contender Series contract winner Mike Malott. “The Black Dragon” is coming off back-to-back first-round KO/TKO victories under the Cage Fury Fighting Championships banner.

The Syndicate MMA-trained Parsons lost three of his first five bouts but enters the Contender Series on a four-fight winning streak that includes a trio of knockout victories. Mosts recently, “The Paradox” scored a head-kick KO of Ricardo Chavez at iKon Fighting Federation 7 on June 11.
