Yet another Ohio fighter is headed to the UFC, as Aleksa Camur punched his ticket to the Octagon following a dominant TKO finish on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
Camur – a main training partner of former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic – landed a flying knee and followed up with some dominant ground and pound to earn the referee’s stoppage.

The Strong Style Fight Team product stopped Fabio Cherant – who also had a 4-0 record heading into the bout – in the second round.
Still just 23 years old, Camur had been dominant on the regional scene competing under the Honor Fighting Championship and Iron Tiger Fight Series banners. All four of his bouts previously had been finishes via knockout or TKO. He also had a 5-0 amateur record.
He was also ranked as the No. 1 pro light heavyweight in Ohio according to Tapology.
Camur joins Don’Tale Mayes in the Octagon, who earned a UFC contract via the Contender Series earlier in July. Previous Ohio Valley fighters who have earned UFC contracts after appearing on the show include Devonte Smith, Jeff Hughes, and Jordan Espinosa.
