Due to a pair of previous fights inside the Octagon, UFC officials denied Ulysses Gomez a chance to tryout for the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Gomez, 29 years old, went 0-2 in his UFC career, falling to John Moraga and Phil Harris.

He went to the tryouts in hopes of making the season as a bantamweight.

The upcoming season of TUF will feature Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano as coaches, along with male and female fighters.
