FEASTIBRAWL: MMA Thanksgiving Style
Once again, Tuff-N-Uff Amateur Fighting Championships came through with a phenomenal night of fights on Thanksgiving Eve. In what could easily become as anticipated as the Cowboys playing on Thanksgiving, Tuff-N-Uff delivered an exciting night of fights capped off with a much hyped rematch between Dylan Jahrling and Mikey Perez for the 185lb Tournament Title. Co-headlined by Rachael Cummins vs. Cortney Casey, highlights of the night included stand out performances by Jillian Lybarger, Lenon Ford, Brandon Sepe and a host of others. Lybarger made quick work of her 6-1 opponent winning by way of knockout. Set up by a devastating right hand that dropped Stephanie Gonzalez, "Justice" continued her assault with pinpoint accurate hammer fists prompting the ref to jump in and stop the bout. A staple of Tuff-N-Uff will now move on like many others and make her pro debut with Invicta. Lenon Ford gutted out an early scare as he was caught hard and early by Jason Robles. Ford utilized his wrestling and top game repeatedly taking down Robles in spectacular fashion to grind out a decision win. Brandon Sepe scored one of the top K.O.'s of the night as he relied on his right hook to make quick work of Deangelo Yates.
The Co-Main Event of the night was a rematch between the current Women's Flyweight Champion Cortney Casey and perennial favorite Rachael Cummins. Cornered by Krzysztof Soszynski, Rachael Cummins made a valiant effort to avenge a previous loss to Champ Cortney Casey. "Cast Iron" proved to be too much for Cummins though and was able to secure victory via 3rd Round Arm Bar finish. Casey has a bright future and any women in her division are officially on notice.
Dylan Jahrling once again proved why wrestlers have the strongest base to build off of when developing as a mixed martial artist. Mikey Perez put on a spirited affair but Jahrlings wrestling, grappling and top game proved to be too much for the Fight Capital prospect. Dylan Jahrling pulled out of an extremely tight arm bar, gained top control and rained down ground and pound punishment to win via 1st Round TKO. Young and talented, Jahrling is going to be tough to beat.
