MAYHEM In MESQUITE!
Tuff-N-Uff Amateur Fighting Championship delivered another action packed card this past Saturday August 18th. With 10 finishes out of the 11 contested bouts, Mayhem In Mesquite proved to be one of the best cards of the year for the ever exciting Las Vegas based promotion. Venturing to nearby Mequite, Nevada, The Casablanca Resort and Casino hosted Tuff-N-Uff's latest Amateur Night of Fights. The venue was jam-packed and featured the Women's 125lb Tournament Championship along with a Super Heavyweight Championship fight.
Standout performances included finishes by Ruthless Fight Team combatant Daniel "Taino" Garcia with his sick Knee Bar finish over game opponent Farley Thomas as well as Cortney "Cast Iron" Casey's impressive Arm Bar finish over perennial favorite Jillian Lybarger. With so many fights ending early by way of TKO, Tap Out, Ref Stoppage and straight KO's, all of the fighters on this card deserve to feel a sense of mutual respect and gratification for putting on such solid performances.
The C0-Main Event of the night featured Tandra "Tundra" Lopez matched up against Rachael Cummins. Rachael Cummins was able to capitalize off of a much improved ground game as she was able to control the ground game with slick transitions and a notable length advantage. Rachael locked in a text-book triangle choke to become the 125lb Tournament Champ. Rumor has it that a match up between Cummins and Cortney "Cast Iron" Casey may be in the works.
The Main Event of the Evening lasted all of 10 seconds as Charles "Chucky" Williams pulled a proverbial Babe Ruth as he pointed to the outfield and called it as it ended with a solid GNP finish. Jeremy Umland took it to Chucky quickly but Williams' head movement and counter striking proved to be the end of the night for Umland. Chucky caught Jeremy with a glancing blow that dropped him just long enough to take advantage of top position and end the fight. Chucky Williams is now 6-0 in his Amateur MMA career.
