The card for Week 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series has been finalized.
The full lineup was announced during the broadcast for UFC Fight Night 173 on Saturday. The event takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Aug. 18 and is topped by a welterweight clash pitting Louis Cosce against Victor Reyna. It streams on ESPN+ beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Four other contests were also confirmed for the card: Cheyanne Buys vs. Hilarie Rose at strawweight, Orion Cosce vs. Matt Dixon at welterweight; Josh Parisian vs. Chad Johnson at heavyweight and Oron Kahlon vs. Collin Anglin at featherweight.
Louis Cosce has kicked off his professional tenure with six consecutive triumphs — all first-round by knockout, technical knockout or submission. The Arcata, California, native last appeared at Combate Americas “Stockton” in December, when he scored an 18-second KO of Art Hernandez.
Reyna, meanwhile, dropped a decision to Miguel Baeza on the Season 3 of the Contender Series last year. He rebounded to post a three-round verdict over Nick Gay under the Combate Americas banner this past November. The 33-year-old Texan is 11-4 with one no contest over the course of a pro career that began in 2012.
