Tuff N Uff To Hold Future Stars Show On October 17th






“The Future Stars of MMA” return to the Orleans Hotel & Casino’s Mardi Gras Ballroom on Friday, October 17th,. Las Vegas locals can see 20 fights for only $20 by purchasing tickets in advance at any Las Vegas Nutrition location. Tickets are $25 and $50 at the door. Tuff-N-Uff’s “Future stars of MMA” shows sell out, so get your tickets early! Doors open at 6pm, first bell is at 7pm.

Jiu Jitsu legend Robert Drysdale is slated to make his MMA debut as “The Future Stars of MMA” return. Drysdale, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt won the Absolute Division at Abu Dhabi world championships in 2006 and trains the Xtreme Couture Pro Team in Jiu Jitsu. Many experts believe he will be a future force in MMA. Also on the card is a highly anticipated female fight at 125lbs., featuring Evva “Fox” Johnson from Kentucky versus Karina “Warrior Princess” Hallinan from Temecula, CA. Both women won impressively in August and sparks are sure to fly when they enter the ring on October 17th. Karina lost by split decision in her first Tuff-N-UFF fight against Kim Rose, who went on to fight the famous Randy Couture's wife, Kim Couture, in Kim’s pro debut.

“These women are on track to be fighting on Network TV soon and we look forward to giving more female MMA stars a safe place to showcase their skills. We've put in a lot of work with the Nevada State Athletic Commission to get amateur MMA up and running,” says Barry Meyer, the President of Tuff-N-Uff Productions, Inc. “Now that is paying off with a strong amateur program in the state. This is our fourth amateur show and the fan base continues to grow and we strive to be considered the “golden gloves” of MMA. Popular MMA fighters such as Jon Fitch, Rob Emerson, Sam Morgan and many more have gotten their start with Tuff-N-Uff and we expect to discover many more stars in the coming years.”

Tuff-N-Uff has been promoting fights since 1994 and began promoting in Nevada in 2003. In April of 2008 Tuff-N-Uff put on the first fully amateur sanctioned MMA card in the State of Nevada. That event and the amateur program in the state of Nevada are the result of tireless work and several presentations to the Nevada State Athletic Commission by Tuff-N-Uff President Barry Meyer. The world class Mardi Gras ballroom in the Orleans Hotel & Casino boasts state of the art video screens and great sightlines.
