Unfortunately, we have come to the end of the 2022 Dana White competition series.

The final event in the series is DWCS Week 10, which will premiere on the show on Tuesday, September 27. If you take a look at the combat card, you’ll see that the 2022 Contender Series will disappear with great fanfare.

All five matches look hot, starting with the main match. The fight in question is a middleweight fight between Donovan Bird and Bo Nikal, who has already won one match in the DWCS, but has not been awarded a UFC contract.

Dana White Competition Series Predictions (Week 10)

Middleweight: Bo Nickal vs Donovan Beard

Bo Nikal fought in the Dana White competition series in August when we saw him defeat his opponent in the first round, after just 62 seconds. Unfortunately for Nickal, that wasn’t enough for him to get a contract offer from Dana White. On the bright side, Nickal will have another chance in Week 10 of the DWCS.

Nickal won his first DWCS fight by submission, which comes as no surprise, considering he is an elite wrestler, having fought more than 100 times in NCAA Division I Wrestling. He also has experience in freestyle wrestling, the sport in which he represented the United States three years ago at the 2019 World U-23 Championship.

Knowing all this, one must assume that if Nikal were to win on Tuesday night, he would do so by submission. But will he win? His opponent is Donovan Bird, a fighter of good standing with a 7-1 record in professional mixed martial arts.

It won’t be easy for Nickal to beat Beard – which is why this match was chosen as the main title for DWCS Week 10 – but we think he will take it out.

Series Competitors Forecast:


Lightweight: Sam Patterson vs. Vinicius Sensi

Sam Patterson is a lightweight fighter who weighs 154.9 lbs. However, he is surprisingly tall for his light weight, at 6’3. If he signed to the UFC, he would become the tallest fighter in the division. But the big question, will he get the UFC contract?

For that to happen, the British fighter needs to beat his Brazilian rival Vinicius Sensi. Unlike Patterson, who is a very experienced fighter with plenty of weapons in his arsenal, Cenci’s strongest weapon is combat.

With his long arms, Patterson should be able to keep Sensei at a distance, but even if the Brazilian can take him down, the Briton should be able to handle him.

Series Competitors Forecast:


Featherweight: Freddy Emiliano Linares vs. Jack Jenkins

Freddy Emiliano Linares is 8-1 in his professional career, and his only loss occurs due to a doctor’s stop. We think his second loss could happen in the 2022 DWCS season finale.

The reason is that he takes on a rising star in Australian MMA. Jack Jenkins is the man in question, who scored 9-2, with six straight wins.

The Australian feuded with fellow countryman Alexander Volkanovsky on several occasions, and it was Falk who apparently helped Jenkins with the business. The story goes that the UFC Featherweight Champion helped Jenkins secure a deal with Paradigm Sports, a sports management agency that manages a number of UFC stars, including Israel Adesanya and Conor McGregor.

If Paradigm Sports has faith in Jenkins, we need to trust him, too. He should be able to beat Linares on Tuesday night, and get a UFC deal along the way.

Series Competitors Forecast:


Flyweight: Joao Elias vs Rafael Ramos Estivam

Two Brazilian players battling the only flyweight fight in 2022 in Week 10 of the World Rally Championship, Joao Elias is 17-3-2 in his professional career, with 65% of his victories being made by surrender. His opponent, Rafael Ramos Estivam, is 10-0 in his career, with three wins by KO/TKO, three by submission, and four by decision.

Ramos Estevam’s record is even more impressive when you take into account the fact that he has fought against some very evil opponents. For example, his last fight was against the previously undefeated Felipe Esteves.

Series Competitors Forecast:


Bantamite weight: Ashik Agim vs. Mateus Mendonca

Ashik Agim is 6-1 in his career, with three of his previous fights ending in less than a minute. He has won two of those by KO/TKO and one by submission, which shows that he is a well-rounded fighter. There is a caveat, however. All his victories occurred against fighters who did not have impressive records.

In fact, Mateus Mendonca will be his strongest opponent to date. Minconca is 9-0 with two wins against respectable fighters in his native Brazil. He’s also a good fighter, but his biggest advantage over Agim is probably his stamina. Unlike Ajim who only fought two rounds once, three of Mencoca’s fights went the distance.
