Just about a week ago the UFC announced that there would be an open casting call for The Ultimate Fighter Season 24. The April 25 event was to take place at thePalace Station Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. From there fighters would move into the TUF house as usual and be filmed as part of a reality series that last six weeks.
This season had a different feel to it however. Instead of just earning a six figure UFC contract, the winner was going to get a title shot in December against the winner of current champion Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo who fight each other April 24.
UFC announced today that the open casting call for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter originally scheduled for April 25 in Las Vegas has been canceled. As of now, no reason was given.
“Las Vegas – UFC® announced today that the open casting call for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter® originally scheduled for April 25 in Las Vegas has been canceled. UFC apologizes for any inconveniences this cancelation has caused.
More information about the next season of the show will be made available in the weeks to come.”
