The bright lights of Las Vegas won’t be the only ones shining bright Friday, September 18th as TUFF-N-UFF will again showcase some of the best amateur male and female mixed martial arts (MMA) athletes in bouts at The Orleans Hotel & Casino. With a little luck, fans in attendance may have the opportunity to watch many go on to become future professional stars.
TUFF-N-UFF’s success is based on the fact that it spearheaded the credibility of the amateur MMA scene by being the first promoter to receive sanctioning from the Nevada Athletic Commission.
TUFF-N-UFF events are widely recognized as the opportunity for amateur MMA fighters to make the move to the professional level. By providing a safe outlet to test their skills before becoming professionals, many of the future stars of MMA started their professional fighting careers on a TUFF-N-UFF card.
Some of the top names in MMA have attended TUFF-N-UFF events including Dana White, Reed Harris, Randy Couture, Joe Rogan, Eddie Bravo, Punkass, SkySkrape, Vitor Belfort, Brandon Vera, Kim Couture, Frank Mir, Babalu Sobral, and many more.
