On October 17, 2008 TUFF-N-UFF, the number one amateur MMA production, returns to The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Known as the Golden Gloves of MMA, TUFF-N-UFF brings you the future stars of Mixed Martial Arts.
Headlining this action packed card will be Abu-Dhabi World Champion Robert Drysdale (Amateur Debut) as he squares off against Josh Musick (8-0) in a light heavyweight showdown. Drysdale popularity derives from being an ADCC World Champion and instructor at Xtreme Couture in addition to being Frank Mir’s coach on this season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).
In the Co-feature, Chance Torres and Javier Torres both (2-0) will try to remain undefeated while attempting to extend on their winning streaks. The undercard will feature 4 four man tournaments with the winner’s vying for a chance to come back on November 8 to win prizes. TUFF-N-UFF will be donating a portion of the proceeds from their October 17th event to The Shade Tree organization: http://www.theshadetree.org/
The Shade Tree organization provides a safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance.
Martial-arts teach self-defense as well as self-confidence, discipline, respect and numerous other benefits. Many children unfortunately can’t attend martial-arts classes because their parents can’t afford it or they don’t have a family.
“TUFF-N-UFF will be bringing several children to attend our events at no charge and offer students martial-arts classes at no charge. Our goal is to set up a fund to help children stay out of gangs, off drugs and offer them an opportunity to lead a productive life. For more information visit www.tuffnuff.net“
