Do you wanna be a f---ing fighter?

If you tried out for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) and didn't make the cut, there's still an opportunity to get yourself featured on a mixed martial arts (MMA) reality television show. Or, perhaps you're the top dog in your respective gym and are finally ready to show the world what you've got.

Time to put up or shut up.

Unfortunately, the open casting call being held at the MMA & Sports Expo ‘Show of Strength,' which is scheduled for July 7, 2012 in Atlantic City, NJ, is not the place for dreamers or guys who "train UFC." While epic fails are certainly entertaining, this is a program designed to showcase experienced martial artists.

Be prepared to prove it.

During the open casting call, reality show hopefuls will be required to demonstrate their fighting skills and tell the world why fight fans should vote them onto the show (fan votes will determine the final cast for this very exciting Hollywood TV project!) The MMA & Sports Expo will have training equipment and pads on-hand during filming. Coaches are welcome to attend.

The MMA & Sports Expo will feature celebrities, MMA fighters, World Champion Strongmen, Muscle Beach Bikini & Physique Championships, a BBQ contest with a $50,000 grand prize and seminars hosted by world class instructors including Mortal Kombat Star Cary Tagawa and Sifu Cliffs Kung Fu Masters.

In addition to the open casting call, the MMA Expo will also have a BBQ contest and VIP party later in the evening. It's going to be on the boardwalk in the middle of July, so expect MMA t-shirt sales to skyrocket as the "Jersey Shore" starts crawling with meatheads.

Bring a camera.
