Christian's TUF Casting & No-Gi Run
UPDATE: I will be making a detour during my trip to No-Gi Worlds competition to go to Las Vegas for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) casting call for season 27. It's been a dream of mine to make it to the UFC, and going through the Ultimate Fighter experience is a great way to make that dream a reality. If all goes well with the schedules (Our stay in Las Vegas is dependent on passing tests and screenings throughout the casting process) I will be attending both the casting for TUF and No-Gi Worlds in one trip.
For season 27, they will be looking for undefeated professional fighters with at least three fights, and in three weight classes, one of which being my weight class of 155lbs. It's an amazing opportunity that I can't pass up, so I'm going to try my best to make this happen and chase my dream of being in the UFC.
If all goes well, (due to casting length and timing) I will also be making my IBJJF No-Gi World's appearance this December in California. It's my goal to be on that podium, and I'm aiming to bring home the gold.
I've received a very generous donation from the Josh Samman Foundation, but could use some help covering all of the expenses. This is an awesome organization and without their initial donation this trip would not be happening at all. If you'd like to donate to their foundation to help future aspiring MMA athletes, visit their website at http://www.sammanmmafoundation.org.
Every little bit helps, and I would be extremely grateful for any and all help. Thank you in advance to those who can give, and thank you to those that continue to support me in my competitions, tournaments and fights.
