TUF 19 Tryouts Draw Bellator, Cage Warriors Champions

The UFC hasn??t begun to air footage from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, but they??re already planning for another season. Tryouts for the TUF 19 are underway and some familiar names were present.

Former Bellator welterweight champion Lyman Good, Cage Warriors welterweight champ Cathal Pendred and former Cage Warriors middleweight champ Chris Fields were among the 80 names to attempt to land a spot on the roster.

No word if the UFC was impressed and there probably won??t be one. The company usually keeps a lid on their contestants until they??re ready to release the cast names.

The tryouts saw middleweights and light heavyweights look to grab the attention of UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby. The Westin Indianapolis hotel in Indiana hosted the event.

Later today, the city will hold UFC Fight Night 27 with Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann as the main event.
