'Tuff Girls' Have Smarts, Hearts, And Know Mixed Martial Arts



“Tuff Girls” Fighters Have

Hearts, Smarts and Know Mixed-Martial-Arts

Las Vegas, Nevada (July 1, 2009) — While the stereotypical fighter is a big brute that grunts and smashes things with his fists, the women fighting at Tuff-N-Uff’s first all-female MMA event “Tuff Girls,” are a mixture of beauty and brains, with an emphasis on the brains. Tuff Girls is the first event of its type in Las Vegas to feature an all-female MMA fight card and will be held:

Date: July 10 (Friday)

Time: 8 p.m. (first fight)

Place: Orleans Arena

Tickets: $20 in advance; $25 at the door

“We are kicking off an historic weekend in MMA with an exciting match-up of some of the nation’s top female mixed martial artists,” said Barry Meyer, President of Tuff-N-Uff Productions, the promoter of Tuff Girls. “We have a line-up of featured fighters who not only pack a punch but have colorful lives outside the ring proving how diverse a sport MMA has become.”

One such fighter is Lauren Feldman. Fighting in the 120 lb class, Ms. Feldman is not only an exceptional fighter, but also an Ivy League graduate. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities and Arts from Carnegie Mellon University, Feldman took her education to the next level by earning her Master’s Degree in Computer & Information Technology from the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school.

Not to be outdone, Barb Honchak has a Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular Biology and a Master’s Degree in Ecological Genetics, Latoya Walker has a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Sports Science and a Master’s Degree in Human Movement and Paige Zio has a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics from the prestigious UC Berkeley. All of these women have pursued successful careers in their fields of study and train in MMA to conquer another challenge.

Tickets for the event are on sale now for $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the fight. Tickets may be purchased by calling 702.284.7777, online at www.orleansarena.com or in person at the Orleans Arena box office located at 4500 West Tropicana Avenue at Arville Road.
