Tuff-Nuff winner Ryan Couture with coaches, Ron Frazier and Shawn Tompkins

PRO MMA (promma.info) has been covering the TUFF-N-UFF events for quite some time because we recognized early on what a valuable platform they provide for amateur MMA athletes. They call their shows “Future Stars of MMA” for a reason; because their tournament-style events offer a breeding ground for up-and-coming fighters to build a name for themselves and get the experience they need to move on into the world of professional mixed martial arts competition.

On Sunday, April 15, TUFF-N-UFF: FUTURE STARS OF MMA returned with the first rounds of a four-man 135lbs. tournament, an eight-man 155lbs. tournament, an eight-man 170lbs. tournament, a four-man 205lbs. tournament, and a 130lbs. female MMA fight. To top it off, they had a main event featuring Ryan Couture, the son of MMA legend Randy Couture and a member of Team Xtreme Couture, taking on Art Martinez from Team Fubar at 155lbs.

GAMENESS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP – GFC 2 summary & results from Nashville, TN

GAMENESS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP’s GFC 2 took place at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds Sports Arena on Saturday, Feb. 14, in Nashville, TN. The fights started at 8pm but the doors opened at 7pm and the place was already packed. It was a cold night in the city but this didn’t keep the fans away, just as the snow didn’t deter the fans from GFC’s inaugural show back in December.

This was the same Sports Arena I came with my Dad to watch local Pro Wrestling shows as a kid. Pro Wrestling stars such as Dutch Mantell, the Iron Shiek, and Jerry Lawler were larger than life and fascinated me as a child. A few decades later I’m back in the same arena but this time the action is real.

Tara LaRosa makes successful return to action at Extreme Challenge: War at the Shore on Jan. 23 in Atlantic City, NJ (full results)

The world’s number one ranked female MMA fighter, Tara LaRosa made a successful return to action tonight at Extreme Challenge: War at the Shore in Atlantic City, New Jersey following a fourteen month layoff. LaRosa (16-1) battled Alexis Davis (6-2) in a very competitive match that saw the fight dead even going into the third round.

Davis was clearly not intimidated by LaRosa’s ranking or status and came out strong in every round. Both ladies are four-stripe purple belts and very highly skilled on the ground. LaRosa dropped Davis in round one with a big right but Davis was able to recover and attempted an omoplata and an armbar.

In round two Davis came out very aggressive and got LaRosa to the ground where she locked in a tight triangle. LaRosa’s patience and experience allowed her to remain calm until she finally escaped but then Davis immediately transitioned to an armbar and the bell sounds.
