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