25 Fighters Get the Second Call for TUF 8

According to an article from the Boston Herald about the tryouts in Boston:

  • More than 250 fighters came from all over the country to the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
  • The fighters came in all shapes, sizes and ages. Some were ruled out for being too young, including a 20-year-old from New York who didn't meet the age minimum of 21. Others - perhaps 40-somethings - didn't quite fit the UFC's demographic. Tattoos were everywhere, as were interesting hairstyles - including one hopeful who had a skull shaved into the back of his head.
  • The eighth season will feature 16 contestants in both the lightweight (155-pound) and light heavyweight (205-pound) divisions.
  • Woody Weatherby (pictured on the right) was one of 25 fighters from the casting call to be invited to Las Vegas for the second leg of tryouts this week, as Spike looks to begin taping next month for December airdates.
A 6% chance to get on 'The Ultimate Fighter' actually doesn't seem that bad.
