CORPUS CHRISTI - Today was Jimmy "The Brick" Flick's final day in town before departing for Oklahoma and then Las Vegas to try out to be the next "Ultimate Fighter".
(6-1)Flick will join 500 other hopefuls on April 15th each fighting for their chance to be on the show.
"It would mean the world to me, this has been a dream since I began fighting and to have a chance is incredible. I was gonna try out before but I was only 20 and now I am 22 and ya have to be 21. I am taking the bull by the horn and running with it and if I can win I will be the youngest ultimate fighters and represent Corpus Christi," said Flick.
The tryout will start with grappling, then sparring, and then interviews. Fighters must weigh in at 135 pounds.
Flick is well known for his wrestling skills, and high-flying moves in the cage. He is one of the few fighters who knows how to properly use the cage to his advantage.
