Tryouts for the eighth season of "The Ultimate Fighter" are currently underway in Boston, and MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) has received some dispatches from the all-day affair.

According to representatives from Spike TV, more than 250 UFC hopefuls arrived early this morning at the Sheraton Boston Hotel for the audition process.

UFC lightweight contender Kenny Florian and heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga stopped by to support the local guys, and Matthew Riddle and Daniel Cramer, who are cast members on the current season of "The Ultimate Fighter," showed up to offer some advice.

The eighth season of "The Ultimate Fighter," which debuts this fall, will feature lightweights and light heavyweights. One of the hopefuls at today's tryouts is Lance Evans. He's the older brother of Rashad Evans, a top UFC light heavyweight contender and winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 2."

Event organizers expect the work day to last until 8 p.m. or later as fighters show off their ground work, striking, and on-air presence during interviews with the show's producers: UFC president Dana White, "TUF" Executive Producer Craig Piligian, and Spike TV Senior Vice President of Sports and Specials Brian J. Diamond.

The event also drew interest from the local media. Reporters from the Boston Herald and The Patriot Ledger were on hand to cover the event.

Today's tryouts will likely be the only opportunity for live auditions. However, attendance wasn't mandatory to earn a spot on the cast. Fighters can go through the traditional application process at UFC.com or SpikeTV.com.
