Kicking off 2015 with a bang, the Las Vegas-based Tuff-N-Uff organization will bring all the “Future Stars of MMA” back to The Orleans Hotel & Casino on Friday, January 9, to showcase the nation’s best up-and-coming talent in the sport and to deliver two more professional female fighters to the respected Invicta FC organization.
“There is no better way to start the New Year than with two women’s MMA fights headlining our card and with Invicta contracts hanging in the balance,” said Jeff Meyer, CEO of Tuff-N-Uff. “Tuff-N-Uff proves time and time again that it is the place where ‘The Future Stars of MMA’ get their start. With an Invicta FC tournament built into our events, you see the winners of our fights become professional fighters, and experience that moment as it happens. We are so excited for 2015 and to have Invicta FC with us as a strategic partner.”
