    TUF Light weight Tryouts?

    Towards the end of the TUF 4 finale last night, I thought I heard one of the announcers say something about open tryouts for lightweight fighters in Las Vegas are going to be held in December, but I didn't catch the exact date.

    I have also been unable to find anything about tryouts on Sherdog or the UFC website. Does anyone have any information about this? Or was I just hearing things? Links would be good if anyone comes across some info.

    Thanks

    Dunno, but I know they've been reaching out to some guys. Jason Reinhardt was apparently told after he got hurt that if he wins his debut fight, he gets a contract, but if he loses, he can go on the next TUF.

    Not what I'm planning, although I could definitely meet the weight requirement.

    I've got a few guys at the gym I train at that are amateur now and may be interested so I am trying to find the info.
