Brad Stewart ready to put his best punch forward in Ultimate Fighter audition

first_imgStewart says that the show’s format for the season would give him a chance to represent the country, and was intrigued by the opportunity.“We just heard about it and thought it was a good opportunity because it was Team Canada versus Australia. [It would] be cool to represent Canada and go down there and meet all the requirements,” he says. “I had to fill out an application, then they call you and approve you, they probably look into your record.”The chance to see how he stacks up with other fighters from the country, while also getting reacquainted with fighters he’s battled in the past are among the things Stewart is looking forward to.- Advertisement -“I get to see the other guys around Canada, because I’ve fought some of the guys that are going, and were supposed to fight some of them, so it will be interesting to see where everyone stands, and where I stand with everybody,” he states. “[I’m] pretty excited to see who all turns out and how many people show, because from what I’ve heard, there’s going to be quite a few people showing up.” He admits that he isn’t sure exactly what to expect from the audition, except from a bit of sparring and potentially, discussions with show producers.“All I know is we’re going to go down there and hit pads, and then grapple against a bunch of the guys that are trying out,” he explains. “From there, they pick the guys that they like, and then they’ll do an on camera interview. If you pass that, then you stay for an extra few days. Then I think that’s where they do the drug tests and more interviews, then I’m not to sure.”Advertisement This is the first time that Stewart has taken part in the try out portion of the show. Duncan Wilson, also of Fort St. John will be at the event as well. Closer to home, Stewart will grapple with Matt Baker on November 8 in Fivestar Fight League 10.last_img read more
