MMA Organization Tuff-N-Uff Announces Tourney, Winner Earns Invicta FC Contract

Amateur MMA never offered such an awesome reward. 

Noted amateur MMA organization Tuff-N-Uff recently announced that it will hold a women's strawweight tournament featuring four female combatants, and the winner gets something a little bit better than a trophy and some bragging rights. 

At the tournament finale—which is slated for June 7 inside Las Vegas' Thomas and Mack Center—Tuff-N-Uff will crown a champion, and this victor will then be sent to Invicta FCthe world's premier women's mixed martial arts organization—with a fancy new professional fighting contract in hand

For the combatants, Tuff-N-Uff's tournament offers the opportunity of a lifetime, the chance to realize lifelong dreams and to fulfill lofty goals. 

"Tuff-N-Uff has long supported women's martial arts, and we've been fortunate enough to have some of the best ladies in the game compete in our cage," Tuff-N-Uff VP Jeff Meyer said in a press release. "The chance to partner with the best all-women's MMA organization in the sport for this unique opportunity was a natural fit for us, and I'm looking forward to seeing this tournament play out."

The tournament's competitors are as follows: 

Tuff-N-Uff Strawweight Tournament Competitors
Name Record
Jiana Denizard 5-2
Jamie Moyle 3-2
Laura Uyeda 5-0
Molly Wren-Holmes 4-0

Tuff-N-Uff

Making this idea even more exciting for mixed martial arts fans, Tuff-N-Uff's resume of past fighters is nothing to scoff at. The future of the women's strawweight division may very well be one of the above names. 

This league churns out world-class competitors, and its amateurs oftentimes go on to become some of the finest professionals in the world. Most notably, Tuff-N-Uff has hosted names like UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, The Ultimate Fighter 18 winner Chris Holdsworth, The Ultimate Fighter 18 veteran Jessamyn Duke, Ryan Couture (son of UFC legend Randy Couture) and noted judoka and undefeated amateur fighter Marina Shafir. 

The opening round of this four-woman tournament takes place April 11 at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
