Audition if You Think You're 'TUF'

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 3/10/2010 No comments
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is coming to Charlotte on March 31 as Kenny Florian battles Takanori Gomi at Bojangles' Coliseum. Tickets went on sale about a month ago for the event, which will air on Spike TV, and today the UFC announced an extra treat for Charlotte. The UFC and Spike TV will hold open call tryouts for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 12 on April 1, the day after the fight.

TUF is a reality show in which some of the best up-and-coming mixed martial artists are trained by professionals and beat each other's brains out in hopes of being crowned The Ultimate Fighter. The tryouts will be in search of lightweights (155 pounds) and light heavyweights (205 pounds), and will be attended by UFC president Dana White and the show's producers.

If you enjoy kicking--and being kicked--in the head, this could be just for you. But also note that the requirements are that you must have had at least three professional fights to be considered.

TUF 12 is scheduled to premiere on Spike TV in September. Season 11, which recently wrapped production, premieres March 31 and will air 12 episodes.

TUF 12 Open Call Tryouts:
Thursday, April 1
Registration begins at 8 a.m.
Omni Charlotte Hotel
Grand Ballroom
132 E. Trade Street
