On Monday April 6, 2009, 186 mixed martial arts fighters from around the world gathered at the Marriott Hotel in Seattle, Washington in hopes of impressing UFC matchmaker Joe Silva and Spike TV executives so they could earn the opportunity to appear on the The Ultimate Fighter season ten reality television show.
In an upcoming article, PRO MMA writer, Jeff Howard, will talk about a few of the participants that stood out to him. Until then, take a look at the photos we were able to capture of the fighters grappling, striking, posing, and cawing…yes, cawing. (caw – n. The hoarse raucous sound that is characteristic of a crow or similar bird.)
