I was a huge fan of the initial Contender Series (the boxing version that had Sly Stallone's support).
The Contender is an American reality television series that initially aired from March 3, 2005 to January 7, 2009 on NBC, ESPN, and Versus and currently airs on Epix. Each season of the series follows a group of boxers as they compete with one another in an elimination-style competition, while their lives and relationships with each other and their families are depicted.
I also enjoyed a few series of TUF but never really gave it the time it deserved.
What’s different about Dana White’s Contender Series? I am already 5 seasons behind, would I need to watch them all or could I just dive right in and enjoy the format?
