The Xtreme Couture gym located in Las Vegas is famous for having one of the best MMA training facilities in the world. Not only do they have the highest quality training equipment money can buy, but the gym is bursting at the seams with the best instructors and sparring partners the sport has to offer.
On August 8, 2008 , Tuff-N-Uff, a Las Vegas-based MMA promotion held an event at the Orleans Hotel and Casino entitled, “The Future Stars of MMA,” which showcased amateur MMA talent from some of the hottest up-and-comers the sport has to offer. One of these young upstarts is a gentleman by the name of Jimmy Jones. Jimmy lives in Vegas and is fortunate enough to be part of the Xtreme Couture family. PRO MMA was fortunate enough to catch up with Jimmy to find out how the Tuff-N-Uff show went and also what it’s like learning the ropes and paying your dues at what many consider the most-respected MMA gyms in the world.
