It seems like only days ago we learned who the contestants were on Season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter! Today, I received an e-mail from Spike TV announcing the try-outs for Season 12. They just don’t take a break, do they?
Season 12 will feature lightweights and light heavyweights, so maybe one of you guys can give it a shot, just make sure you have all your gear with you and, most importantly, have a record with at least three fights under your belt. I guess they have slightly more standards than Bellator FC’s tryouts, which only required two fights to give it a go.
Read the full details of how you can try out after the jump!
The UFC and Spike TV will hold an open casting call at The Omni Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, NC for Season 12 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” This season, the series will be casting mixed martial artists in the Lightweight (155 lbs) and Light Heavyweight (205 lbs) divisions.
