TUF 14 Tryouts: Din Thomas Amongst the 400 Candidates

The Ultimate Fighter 14 tryouts took place yesterday at the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott and there were some familiar faces among the prospects according to MMAJunkie.com. Season 14 will feature bantamweight and featherweight fighters for the first time:

Some 400 hopefuls turned out today to audition for the 14th season of "The Ultimate Fighter. Seen in the crowd were: UFC vet Din Thomas, who appeared on the show's fourth season, and WEC vets Wagnney Fabiano, Micah Miller and Ian McCall.

In what's become a customary part of the reality show's tryouts, lines ran long and time ran short for fighters to show their stuff. Each hopeful had a couple of minutes – tops – to grapple and strike before White, UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, and officials from Spike TV.
