 TUF Tryouts in L.A.

Wow a ton of good fighters! 

They started by seperating the weights...185 guys and 205 guys.
Then had everyone grapple for 2 min. It took all day..lol

then it was my turn....

DANA WHITE calls out "Shannon Ritch"...yes Dana said my name- Ha Ha
then they call out probably the toughest guy in the room. "Nick Thompson"
We grapple- in front of over 200 fighters- Dana White, Joe Silva, and the TAPOUT CREW-
they all witness a display of great moves and submissions. YES I caught NICK several
times...let go went on to others. Totally dominate.

After it is all said and done- My name was not called? :-(

NICK's Name was called? WTF???
what match were they watching.......DANA and JOE missed a great opportunity to have "THE CANNON"
in the house. Its all good. But just want to say the Tryouts SUCKED! it was not the best guys that got picked,
several top guys were not picked....
UPSET to say the least!

Just my .02

Bad form talking about what happens in a practice session..

Completely classless in fact..

Especially lame when ya consider your guy's performances on game day seem to be quite different than this supposed practice session's outcome..

 So you are saying that you basically handled Nick Thompson w/ease?  Just want to be sure I am understanding you correctly.

LMAO at someone with a losing record in over 100 career fights going to TUF tryouts and being shocked when he was not picked.

Shannon is underrated on the ground and I bet "The Goat" ended up tapping to a series of heelhooks. Great job Shannon, why is the UFC trying to freeze out "The Cannon"? This guy would be perfect for TV win or lose.

Nick would be great for TUF and an early favorite.

Any word on other people at the tryouts? I heard Giva Santanta and Corey Devela.

Regardless of what this has to do with you, surely you understand by now that this is ALWAYS the case.  Every single season someone comes on here complaining that they didn't pick "the best" guys.  If it were about "the best" guys, wouldn't they just have one big ass tourny and pick the final 8 or 16?

TUF has produced some pretty good talent and only missed on a few a la Eddie Alvarez.

You sir are a disrespectful shit. LOL at calling yourself a professional. I doubt Nick would come on here and disrepect you like that.
