Spike TV
and the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Monday announced a casting call for
season eight of “The Ultimate Fighter.” The tryouts are scheduled to take place
on April 10 in Boston at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

 

Unlike
season seven, which is comprised entirely of middleweight fighters, the casting
call for season eight calls for fighters from both the lightweight (155-pound)
and light heavyweight (205-pound) weight classes.

 

No
indication was given as to how many fighters would be chosen for the season
eight. Nor was it stated whether or not the fighters would have to take part in
the new “fight-off” format that will kick-off season seven.

 

UFC
president Dana White, The Ultimate Fighter executive producer Craig Piligian,
and Spike TV senior vice president Brian Diamond will oversee the tryouts.

 

All
interested applicants must be over 21 and our encouraged to sign up in advance
at
