Shannon Ross lost on “Dana White’s Contender Series” Tuesday, but it wasn’t because he didn’t try hard enough.
At DWCS 48, Ross (13-6) and Vinicius Salvador (14-4) engaged in a slugfest that many fans are calling one of the best in the series’ history.
Salvador knocked out Ross in the second round and received a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship soon after.
On Thursday, Rubenstein reported that Ross had undergone an emergency appendectomy and that it had been a success.
Many UFC fans wondered if Dana White would give Ross a contract after seeing the amount of brutality and enthusiasm in the bout.
