Tuff-N-Uff’s Dual Memorial Day Weekend Cards Set for May 28, May 30

With the biggest mixed martial arts weekend in Las Vegas’ history just days away, the city’s premier amateur fight organization has finalized a pair of action-packed fight cards.

Fans flocking to Las Vegas for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s “UFC 114: Jackson vs. Evans” event, as well the second-ever UFC Fan Expo, can also attend a pair of affordably priced events featuring some of the brightest prospects in the nation at the Orleans Hotel & Casino.

And for those fight fans unable to make the shows, Tuff-N-Uff has teamed up with www.GoFightLive.com to stream both cards to you live for one low price of $9.99.

Tuff-N-Uff invades the Orleans Hotel & Casino’s Mardi Gras Ballroom on Friday night, May 28, and then returns for even more fighting action on Sunday evening, May 30.

Tickets for both events, which start at just $25, are available at the Orleans Hotel & Casino’s box office or online at www.OrleansCasino.com and www.TuffNUff.net.

Tuff-N-Uff officials will also be distributing $5-off coupons at the UFC Fan Expo, while anyone with a Military ID is also entitled to a $5 discount on tickets.

Included among Friday’s 14 contests will be a 115-pound female title fight between undefeated Missouri resident Ashley Cummins (4-0) and the hard-hitting Gabriella Lakoczky (1-1), as well as a Las Vegas-area grudge match between wrestling stalwarts Greg Gifford (1-0) – a Las Vegas High School wrestling coach who put together an 80-1 record in his final two high-school wrestling seasons – and veteran Weston Duschen (3-6), who fought in the first sanctioned amateur MMA card in Las Vegas.

In another intriguing matchup undefeated Xtreme Couture prospect Jake Swinney (2-0) meets former NFL prospect Chris Camacho (2-0).

Also on the card are appearances by five-time Tuff-N-Uff veteran Jimmy Spicuzza (4-2) and UFC president Dana White’s cousin, Justin Vadnais (0-2).

In additional action, a pair of undefeated lightweights meet as Spiritwolf MMA’s Paul Blancaflor (2-0) faces Fasi Sports’ Dustin Bredwick (1-0).

Sunday’s 12-bout fight card is anchored by Striking Unlimited bantamweight Maurice Senters (3-2) against Legend MMA’s Chris Brady (4-6). The co-feature sees a pair of undefeated 250-pound brawlers square off as Kevin Absher (1-0) faces Chris Simmons (1-0).

Female 135-pounders Robin Hartman (2-2) and Emily Peters-Kagan (1-0) face off, while undefeated prospects Sedrick Sweet (1-0), Lee Henry Lilly (2-0) and Ahmed Sanchez (1-0) will also appear on the card.
