From MMA Junkie,
Open tryouts for “The Ultimate Fighter 12,” which took place this morning in North Carolina, drew more than 300 reality-show hopefuls, including some notables names who previously competed for World Extreme Cagefighting, PRIDE Fighting Championships and event a past edition of “TUF,”…
And though today’s session at the Omni Charlotte Hotel’s grand ballroom in Charlotte drew notables such as recent WEC fighter Mike Budnik and PRIDE/King of the cage vet Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett, one arrival provided perhaps the biggest surprise.
Season 12 will feature fighters in the lightweight and light heavyweight divisions and is starting to look like season 4 with all the vets from other orgs looking for their second shot at the big time. One can’t help but wonder if Roy Nelsons seemingly easy path to victory over game but green opposition is setting a precedent for the show. Couldn’t help but notice Columbus, OH fighter Nick “Afrozilla” Gaston at the tryouts too. I will try not to get ahead of myself over all the TUF 12 news seeing as we still have the 11th season to finish first.
