The time has arrived for the first event of not only the year, but the decade; for Tuff-N-Uff Amateur Fighting Championships. Brothers Barry and Jeff Meyer are looking to smash the mold this week as they coordinate a trifecta of MMA mastery for fans in the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas, NV.
You've arrived in Sin City, and you're ready to take this town by storm. You've got three days to do it; now what to do, what to do? This weekend, folks, it's all about Tuff-N-Uff. This is what they have in store for you.
Three days, three flavors, three promising events are on tap this coming weekend. Starting Thursday and ending Saturday, the gentlemen at Tuff-N-Uff have really outdone themselves this time.
First and foremost, a softer touch gets the party started with a bang.
This Thursday night the Riviera Hotel and Casino will transform into a veritable playground of gorgeous women. Some divine dime pieces have come together in competition to become a Tuff-n-Uff girl.
That's right, people: ring girls, Sin City ring girls...the baddest on the planet.
Don't try to picture it, you just don't have a clue. This one you have to see to believe. The latest ring girl contest was a spectacular event, one tantalizing enough to lure even Wanderlei Silva in for a spell.
If Wandy can't resist, what makes you think you can? Who are you to call into question Mr. Silva's self discipline?
But we digress.
It's a great setting with gorgeous honeys showcasing their talents. Vice President Jeff Meyer is very excited and had this to say about his upcoming contest:
"The ring girl search is on Thursday and there’s already over 20 girls registered to compete; because this is Vegas and there are so many beautiful women looking for the 'Fight Capital of the World' experience."
Unfortunately, this event will not be open to the public. That's not to say you won't have a chance to see the ladies, or any of the MMA stars that may be present, before and after the event. What more do you want?
Well maybe a suite comped at the Bellagio, but who's counting, and just who exactly do you think you are anyway?
If you're in the neighborhood, do yourself a favor; swing by this Thursday night and have a basket of chicken wings, you won't be disappointed. It's rare that a fight fan doesn't see an MMA superstar at a Tuff-N-Uff event.
So that should gift wrap a great start to an evening out in Vegas. Next, the fight fan must struggle to find something to top that experience and eventually find themselves passed out by the elevator on the floor of their room at 11:30 Friday morning.
Just enough time to fully recuperate and head on over to the Vegas classic, The Riviera Hotel and Casino. What awaits you there is nothing short of the absolute premier, classiest, and explosive amateur event you will find. A fight card coordinated and promoted by the Meyer brothers.
Tuff-N-Uff has joined efforts with MTX Audio to produce Fight Night III: All In, featuring some of the top stars of MMA. A fight fan couldn't spend $25 better in Vegas, than to attend this event.
The Meyer brothers work with some of the most elite gyms in the world, and have earned their trust with the young fighters they are bringing along in this sport. And with world class talent, come world class names.
"There will be some great MMA action at our next big event on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Barry Meyer, President and Founder of Tuff-N-Uff. “We are getting some of the top future stars of MMA to fight for bragging rights as the premier champions of Fight Night III.”
Barry went on to say, “We are pulling out all the great fights to highlight our return to the Las Vegas Strip at Fight Night III. This event was private the last two years and this year’s should sell out quick. We should also have some great celebrities in the crowd such as Randy 'The Natural' Couture, Frank Mir, Wanderlei Silva and many more!”
Promising young careers are being molded at events held by Tuff-N-Uff. Fighters like Ryan Couture and Larry Mir will be competing at Fight Night III. These are two young fighters with championship pedigree in their family trees.
Now they look to take MMA by the horns and showcase their own evolution in a sport that welcomes them with open arms. They are but a couple of highly talented warriors on display this Friday night.
It's your choice, fight fans. Drop half a C-note to get you and your lady through the door of a flashy Vegas night club. Or show her a really good time and take her to some world class fights.
Don't hit the booze too hard at this one because Saturday morning will come quickly. Especially if you don't go back to the room at all; there is always an after party. Who are we fooling, hit it hard. You're in Vegas, have a good time.
Either way, when you do get up Saturday morning, you sleeping beauty you, you need to hurry up and get down to the grappling tournament that Tuff-N-Uff and MTX Audio are hosting.
Also at the Riviera, they are hosting an open No-Gi grappling tournament to get your Saturday off to a good start. While fight cards are fun, these tournaments have a totally different feel to them and can be very enjoyable.
Where a fight night is all lasers and flash, tournaments are usually more traditional and laid back. What does not change is the element of talent and potential to be found on the mats. There will definitely be some great rolling going on at this one.
For the hardcore fan, this is something you won't want to miss. For the aspiring fan, you could learn a lot about some of the finer points of what you enjoy about this sport. It's a fine end to the two nights of turbulence you've just endured while being pummeled by the hands of the Vegas gods.
You held your own, though, and made it through. Depending on the condition of your room, checkout may be the only obstacle you have left. And if I know you, you've already maxed out the credit card playing big shot at the after party.
So you better checkout over the phone, just leave the room key on the pillow. Oh and the big guy you upset in the hallway last night? He's sitting by the elevator waiting, so take the stairs. Unless you think you learned enough at the tournament to put the flying arm bar on him.
Better yet, if you want to fight and think you're Tuff-N-Uff, just call Jeff Meyer...he'll hook you up.
