Why? Because of his pair of previous fights inside the Octagon, UFC officials denied Ulysses Gomez a chance to tryout for the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter.
He is only 29 years old, and went 0-2 in his UFC career. But with the way the UFC has been cleaning house why would they allow him to fight. They are looking ahead you have to assume and do not want to have to cut people for a losing record again.
He went to the tryouts in hopes of making the season as a bantamweight.
He tweeted last night:
“They said I can’t tryout cause I’m a UFC vet but the app doesn’t say anything about it. I think they were afraid of my sexiness.”
Good to see he still has a good since of humor about him. I would have love to see his time with the UFC much longer, however if you have a few bad fights here is proof it can truly ruin things for you. To Ulysses it was a step in the right direction. No worries I am sure another professional organization will be interested in him.
The upcoming season of TUF will feature Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano as coaches, along with male and female fighters.
