Get ready, everybody. This week is a packed week in MMA, with five cards planned between Tuesday and Saturday nights.

Go to the grocery store (after you finish reading this article, of course) and stock up on snacks and drinks. You’ll need plenty.

Last week on Dana White’s Contender Series, four more MMA free agents secured contracts in the UFC from Dana White.

Rodrigo Nascimento, Tracy Cortez, Aalon Cruz, and Aleksa Camur each won deals with the promotion, bringing the total number of fighters to secure a contract as a direct result of winning a fight to 20.

However, it was also announced by White that Antonio Trocoli, who won a contract on the July 9 program, had his contract voided due to a positive in-competition drug test, reducing the number to 19.

Let’s turn our attention to this Tuesday’s event (8 p.m. EDT, 5 p.m. PDT, ESPN+ in the United States, UFC Fight Pass internationally), highlighted by a Lightweight main event matching 7-0 Omar Morales with 12-2 Harvey Park.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into this Tuesday night’s main event, Harvey Park is the taller contestant, standing six feet even, three inches taller than Omar Morales at 5-foot-9.

Morales has yet to lose an MMA appearance during his professional career. Tuesday’s main event is his first MMA appearance in almost a year, having last won in Bellator 204 on Aug. 17 of last year.

That night, he scored a first-round knockout via head kick and punches against Troy Nawrocki during the event’s featured prelim.

In the other corner, Harvey Park has posted a 4-1 record in his last five MMA appearances, winning last time out in April’s LFA 64, knocking out DeMarques Jackson with two seconds left in the opening round of the main event.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that Omar Morales has a two-inch reach advantage (74 inches to 72 inches) over Harvey Park.

Prediction: Omar Morales by first-round knockout.

Other fights on Tuesday night’s card:

Herbert Burns (8-2) vs. Darrick Miner (22-9) [Featherweight, co-main event]

Taylor Johnson (5-0) vs. Andre Muniz (17-4) [Middleweight]

Marilla Santos (10-2) vs. Lucrezia Ria (7-2) [Women’s Flyweight]
