ESPN has announced that it will not renew the boxing reality series "The Contender" for a third season. After a year on NBC, the series was picked up by ESPN for two seasons. The Contender's Executive Producer Jeff Wald is hoping to put together a fourth season with an unnamed network. The season three finale between Sakio Bika and Jaidon Codrington is widely considered to be the highlight of the series. Bika won the season three tourney in a sensational fight-of-the-Year candidate bout. Other Contender champions were Sergio Mora (season one) and Grady Brewer (season two).

I hate to admit it but The Contender couldn’t compete with The Ultimate Fighter. I have watched every season of each and I just think TUF is a better show and put together much better than The Contender. This season on TUF they brought 32 guys on and only 16 made it so everyone had to fight and win to make it on. Great concept.

If they are going to do it they need to do a heavyweight one so they can be very weightclass specific.

I never liked the show anyways. What bothered me the most was that they didn't have actual contenders on them. Well, for the most part.

I thought last season WAS season 3.?

The show sucked, and they couldn't even keep the results a secret. I don't want to see the boxer's family and shiit. I don't want to see SLOW-MOTION!!! I want a clock displayed at all times. I could go on and on. This is a good thing.
