UFC's Contender Series saw 3 new fighters added to the roster

New blood on the roster after Jordan Leavitt and Uros Medic both finish decisively in their fights for Dana White's Contender Series.

Jordan "The Monkey King" Leavitt

Jordan Leavitt comes into his bout with a strong background in grappling, getting his win with a deep arm triangle having nuetralised his opponents's wrestling.

With a ground game that presented ideas of Khabib's dominating style, showing a quick finish, combined with an 11 fight-win streak, expect to see Californian Leavitt out to make a statement and carry his streak on into the UFC.

Uros Medic

Uros Medic was without question the standout fighter on the card. The Serbian has been training in Alaska for the last three years, taking time away from a his family back to chase his dream.

In doing so, Uros Medic has the potential to be a nightmare at the lightweight division. A clear fight IQ and varied strikes combined with crisp technique makes Medic a dangerous addition to an already dangerous division.

Expect the Serb to make a name for himself having been offered a fight contract after scoring himself a second TKO finish.

Dustin Jacoby

Former UFC fight Dustin Jacoby came in to get himself another shot in the UFC, having spent two fights with the organisation before taking time out.

He came back and threw heavy leather on Contender Series with a view to damage a tough, less experienced opponent.
