The UFC and SpikeTV on March 2 announced open casting calls for season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter, which will feature featherweights and bantamweights. This will be the first time the show has centered on weight classes below 155 and coincides with the UFC’s merger with the WEC.
The casting call will take place on March 21 at the Marriott hotel by the Newark International Airport. UFC President Dana White will oversee the tryouts, along with TUF producers Craig Piligan and Jamie Campione and Spike Senior Vice President Brian Diamond.
The tryouts will begin at 10am, but fighters have to arrive between 8am and 9am for registration. The press release announcing the tryouts specifies that fighters looking to participate must have at least three professional fights on their record.
