Two days after the professionals scrap in Newark at UFC 128, the amateurs will give a shot.

UFC and Spike will hold an open casting call for Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter" at The Marriott at Newark Airport in New Jersey on Monday, March 21. Registration is at 8 a.m., and tryouts at 10 a.m.

The tryouts are open to all featherweights (145 pounds) and bantamweights (135).

This season, the series will be casting mixed martial artists in the featherweight (145 pounds) and bantamweight (135 pounds) divisions. Perhaps that means we'll see Urijah Faber as a "TUF 14" coach.

Three things all fighters attending must know:

1) You'll l grapple and hit pads so  dress appropriately and bring all necessary gear.

2) You must have a professional MMA record with at least three fights.

3) You must be at least 21 years old.
