Meet three TUF 10 hopefuls

Hoping to follow in the footsteps of the UFC stars before them and gain a spot on The Ultimate Fighter season 10, 186 middleweight, light heavyweight, and heavyweight fighters from all over the world showed up in Seattle, Washington on April 6th for an open casting call. PRO MMA (promma.info) was there to get a first look at the TUF 10 hopefuls.

The tryouts consisted of three phases: grappling, striking, and a personal interview. Following each of the first two phases, the names of the fighters that impressed the judges and made it to the next phase were called out. For the fighters who made the cut to the interview phase, they were told the final decisions would be made in a week or two and those selected to take part in The Ultimate Fighter season 10 would be notified.

From inexperienced to established, run-of-the-mill to out of this world, the makeup of fighters that tried out was anything but monotonous. Some were nervous while others seemed very relaxed and composed. Some made it all the way to the interview phase while many did not get past the grappling round.
