    TUF Tryouts in L.A.

    Wow a ton of good fighters!

    They started by seperating the weights...185 guys and 205 guys.
    Then had everyone grapple for 2 min. It took all day..lol

    then it was my turn....

    DANA WHITE calls out "Shannon Ritch"...yes Dana said my name- Ha Ha
    then they call out probably the toughest guy in the room. "Nick Thompson"
    We grapple- in front of over 200 fighters- Dana White, Joe Silva, and the TAPOUT CREW-
    they all witness a display of great moves and submissions. YES I caught NICK several
    times...let go went on to others. Totally dominate.

    After it is all said and done- My name was not called? :-(

    NICK's Name was called? WTF???
    what match were they watching.......DANA and JOE missed a great opportunity to have "THE CANNON"
    in the house. Its all good. But just want to say the Tryouts SUCKED! it was not the best guys that got picked,
    several top guys were not picked....
    UPSET to say the least!

    Just my .02







    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: classless mother fucker.. you're like 70-70 in MMA.. Shit like this is why Dana doesn't want you..

    Caught me several times in what? Shannon is correct that we did grapple each other at the TUF tryouts but the rest of his post is utter non-sense.

    In said match, you were to start on your knees and basically flow. Dana instructed us that he didn't care about position but rather just wanted us to move and go for submissions. As such, I was trying some inverted-guard (at least I think that is the name of the position) and to Shannon's credit, he stopped them and took my back. I then reversed him and was still, more or less, flowing when he put my leg across his body like he was going to go for an outside heel hook. Mind you, heel hooks were not allowed. In any case Shannon did nothing more than put my leg across his body before I became irritated that he was going for it and pulled of the outside heel hook and mounted Shannon. I locked in a side choke and he tapped well before I actually applied the choke. I let go and continued to flow, as per Dana's instructions, and Shannon tapped as I started to set-up an armbar because he was exhausted and wanted to quit.

    The sad part is, that Shannon's grappling technique is actually pretty decent and he probably could have been a good fighter if he had any heart.

    his finishing rate is impressive...of his 44 wins, he's 42 of them :bowdown:


    of course, of his 67 losses, he's been finished 100% of the time (KO'd 16x, subbed 51x) :mamoru:

    :rofl: wtf. So Dana doesn't want them actually grappling just "flowing" and going for submissions with disregard for position? No wonder mostly retards end up on the show

    holy shit, only 4 of his 111 fights have made it to the second round, and none have made it into the 3rd. Jesus christ.

    he pretty much only beats complete noobs, and also apparently has a glass chin and taps if you grab his wrists
