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.
