Bellator MMA is on the lookout for prospects, as they will be holding an open tryout this December. The event begins at 10 a.m. ET with registration from Philadelphia’s Daddis Fight Camps. Tryouts will start at 11 a.m.
Sam Caplan and Zach Light, members of the Bellator talent relations team, will be on hand. Previous events have brought forth such fighters as Jason Butcher, Mike Mucitelli and Jared Downing. Fighters must bring a mouth piece, protective cup and MMA or boxing gloves. Fighters must also be an unrestricted free agent with no contractual obligations to any other combat sports promotion. All weight classes are welcome. Tryouts will consist of one-on-one grappling as well as a group striking session. There will be no live MMA sparring.
The tryouts will not be a form of competition. Instead, the performances will be reviewed by the talent relations team.
