Back on good terms with Dana White, lightweight Justin Gaethje, 32, signs UFC contract extension
Justin Gaethje discusses signing a new contract ahead of his UFC 268 fight vs. Michael Chandler. (0:56)

DWCS 2021 Week 1 live stream, channel guide, fight card.

The fifth season of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) has arrived, as more fighters gear up for what’s called “the ultimate job interview” — competing in the cage with UFC president Dana White cageside in the hopes of earning a UFC contract.

The main event for week 1 of this new season will feature a pair of light heavyweights in the unbeaten former UFC signee Azamat Murzakanov and Matheus Scheffel squaring off.

This will be Murzakanov’s first piece of MMA action in nearly two years. He last fought at Brave CF 29 in November 2019, defeating kickboxer Guto Inocente by unanimous decision and Mohammad Fakhreddine by first-round knockout in one night to win the Brave CF openweight tournament.

Prior to that tournament, Murzakanov hadn’t fought since April 2017. He was set to compete in the UFC in a June 2017 card but was forced off and suspended for two years as a result of failing a drug test.

Schefel is also coming into this bout after an approximately two-year layoff, last competing in October 2019, where he defeated Fabio Vasconcelos via first-round finish to become Future FC light heavyweight champion.

The co-main event of the evening will see a pair of featherweights veterans go at it as Diego Lopes takes on Joanderson Brito.

Lopes has won seven straight and 16 of his last 17, most recently submitting Masio Fullen in March. Brito has won 10 straight and 11 of 12, but he hasn’t fought since finishing Jose Mariscal in 44 seconds in May 2019.

Here’s how to watch the premiere of the new DWCS season.

UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje has signed a contract extension that will keep him inside the Octagon, ahead of his upcoming fight against Michael Chandler at UFC 268 on Nov. 6.

Gaethje (22-3) broke the news to ESPN during an interview Tuesday. The former interim champion had expressed some frustration with the UFC over the last year, but says he and president Dana White are on good terms following this extension. Gaethje's frustration was caused, in part, by the state of his division over the last year.

Gaethje, 32, unsuccessfully challenged Khabib Nurmagomedov for the undisputed 155-pound title at UFC 254 last October. After Nurmagomedov announced his retirement following that bout, Gaethje felt he was one of the most deserving of a shot at the vacant title. The UFC ultimately went with a matchup between Chandler and Charles Oliveira in May.

"I was pissed off at the time," Gaethje said. "I thought this was the most coveted title in the UFC when Khabib was around, and it turned into almost the laughingstock of the UFC overnight. When you have Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler fighting each other for the title, to be the best -- those two weren't best. It was me and [Dustin] Poirier. That should have happened."

Gaethje, of Denver, says he has moved past that frustration and is looking forward to fighting Chandler (22-6), who lost to Oliveira via TKO in their title fight, in November. He expects Oliveira to book his first title defense against Poirier in the near future, and believes Poirier will win that fight.

One opponent Gaethje does not see in his future is Conor McGregor. There was a time when a fight between those two felt nearly inevitable, as they are considered two of the most entertaining fighters in the division and have gone back and forth on social media.

Gaethje felt McGregor ducked a fight against him in January 2020 by electing to fight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone instead. He believes the fight might have been possible after he won the interim championship in May 2020, but he had no interest in it at that time, as his sights were on unifying the belt against Nurmagomedov.

With McGregor suffering a serious leg injury in a trilogy loss to Poirier in July, Gaethje thinks that fight is officially off the table.

"Zero percent," he said. "I don't think he'll fight, if only once or twice [more] -- and it won't be against guys like me. It'll be guys like Nate Diaz or Jorge Masvidal. Favorable matchups."
