the list Meltzer posted included her but with an asterisk, may have been disqualified due to age, Meltzer listed one more name than the show calls for

Kim Couture was denied because of her age 37.Tara is 35 & that possibly is where the cutoff is.

First off, do you have a source for Kim Couture being denied because of her age? Also one would think Kim Couture was denied because she's a really bad fighter. She is 3-7, and 3-5 against fighters who were 0-0 at the time.

From Kims Twitter:

Kim Couture: Yep I'm officially considered the old chic now :( The age cut off for the Tryouts was 34

xMostWanted559x @KimiCouture: there's a age limit for tuf? I thought since u fought before before u automatically can get signed to UFC? And not tryout

Kim Couture @xMostWanted559x: Yes there is 21-34

Jon M. Snowden ?@4321jon1234 @KimiCouture: did tara get shafted too, I swear she is over 35.

Kim Couture @4321jon1234: Not sure, she's younger than me though

Jon M. Snowden @KimiCouture: just checked January 8, 1978 . so 35. i wonder if they missed it

Kim Couture @4321jon1234: Not sure, they caught mine after I got done competing against her in the main event! showed me where it said 21-34 in the app.

The UFC can also make exceptions to the rules.

Lia Mata'fa was also on the list of rumored fighters and she has no professional fights.

Kim Couture had two rules going against her with both age and a losing record.

So I think despite the age limit that Tara has a good shot at being in.

She's still an awful fighter regardless and apparently they weren't inclined to bend the rules for her like they did for Lia Mata'afa and Tara Larosa.

If the military can give waivers for age, the UFC should too.

I was SHOCKED to see Tara lose the fight to get into the TUF house, I honestly thought she would easily win the entire show. She has been training and fighting all over the world for a long time and was the best female fighter in the world for a while.

Agree 100%, thought she would be the favorite to win. Certainly didn't expect her to lose the get-in fight. Still mad respect for a legend. Phone Post 3.0

i wonder if she was just having an off day or her opponent was just that fucking good. regardless, best wishes to tara. most likely we'll see her in the UFC based off all the hype im reading.

I think she just doesn't have the drive anymore. Ten years ago she would've buzzsawed through TUF. Phone Post 3.0

Imagine how much energy she wasted panning your intentions. She might still buzzsaw through TUF were your love requited.
