DWCS 2021 Week 2 live stream, channel guide, fight card.

After an impressive first week where five UFC contracts were handed out — including the first time a Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) loser was awarded a contract — season five rolls on with week two.

The main event, however, has been given a major shake-up, as it will now be Logan Urban taking on Josh Quinlan in the welterweight featured bout.

Darian Weeks was originally slated to take on Quinlan, but Weeks was pulled from the fight on Sept. 5 due to COVID protocols. Urban takes this fight now on just two days’ notice.

Urban has won five of his six pro fights, including his current four-fight win streak. He last fought at Ohio Combat League 14 in July, knocking out Antoine Blassingame with a vicious knee.

Quinlan, who went 6-0 on the amateur circuit in Real MMA and Tuff-N-Uff, has finished all five of his fights — the last three of which have come in the LFA. He most recently fought at LFA 103 in March, submitting Dallas Jennings.

The co-main event will feature Mario Sousa and Chidi Njoukani.

Sousa fought on DWCS last year, scoring a unanimous decision win over Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz but failing to win a contract.

Njoukani is a Bellator veteran who was released in August 2019 after back-to-back losses to John Salter and Rafael Carvalho. He competed most recently in the LFA last year, scoring a second-round finish of Cristhian Torres.
