The first card for the UFC’s new Tuesday Night Contender Series has been announced.

Recently the promotion announced that the new show, which will be broadcast on Fight Pass, will give up-and-coming and veteran fighters an opportunity to showcase their skills to the UFC brass. A win won’t guarantee a roster spot with the UFC, but an impressive victory could open the door to a new contract.

Now it’s been confirmed that the first card will air on July 11th, and that it will feature the fights below:

Flyweight Bout
Manny Vazquez vs Joby Sanchez

Middleweight Bout
Charles Byrd vs Justin Jones

Bantamweight Bout
Boston Salmon vs Ricky Turcios

Heavyweight Bout
Greg Rebello vs Azunna Anyanwu

Featherweight Bout
Matt Bessette vs Kurt Holobaugh
