Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.27.2013
According to mmajunkie.com, former Bellator MMA welterweight champion Lyman Good, current Cage Warriors welterweight champion Cathal Pendred and former Cage Warriors middleweight titleholder Chris Fields were among the 83 fighters (56 middleweights and 27 light heavyweights) that took part in the TUF 19 tryouts at The Westin Indianapolis hotel.
Joe Silva and Sean Shelby were on hand to evaluate the fighters, who first were paired up for short grappling matches against one another, which lead to a set of cuts. The remaining fighters then will hit pads before one more set of cuts, and then move onto interviews with the producers.
Other notables at the tryouts today were Strikeforce veteran Lumumba Sayers (6-4); Bellator vet Luis Palomino (21-8), Maximum Fighting Championship welterweight Dhiego Lima (8-1) (brother of Bellator's Douglas Lima) and unbeaten three-fight Bellator vet Kelvin Tiller (6-0).
