Tuff-N-Uff: Future Stars of MMA May 2
Fri May 2 10:00PM ET
LAS VEGAS – The big boys will rule the cage on May 2, as the nation’s premier amateur mixed martial arts promotion returns to Las Vegas’ Cox Pavilion.
“Tuff-N-Uff: The Future Stars of MMA” sees Las Vegas’ own Charles “Chucky” Williams (5-0), the promotion’s reigning super heavyweight champion, put his belt on the line in a rematch with Michigan’s Jeremy Umland (3-1).
“As always, we’ve got fantastic matchups on this card from top to bottom, and we’ll see some of the absolute best prospects in the sport compete in our cage,” Tuff-N-Uff exec and co-founder Jeff Meyer said. “But I’m really looking forward to this main event. There’s something special about two massive opponents squaring off that gets you excited, and both of these super heavyweights are capable of ending the bout with just one punch. As their first matchup proved, these two are always in exciting matchups.”
The first Tuff-N-Uff fight is at 7 p.m., and doors to the venue open one hour earlier.
Williams and Umland first met in August 2012, with the champ needing just 10 seconds to score a first-round TKO. It was Umland who rushed forward with power at the opening bell, but Williams dropped him with a stiff counter right and finished the fight with a barrage of strikes on the floor. For Umland, who protested the stoppage at the time, the loss remains the only blemish on his amateur record, and he now looks to avenge that result.
In addition to the night’s main event, “Tuff-N-Uff: The Future Stars of MMA” will feature a full lineup of bouts featuring top amateur talent from Las Vegas and around the nation. Top camps represented on the card include 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, One Kick’s Gym, Robert Drysdale Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Syndicate MMA and Xtreme Couture.

WSOF Central America – Wesley Team vs Da Luta 2
Fri May 2 9:00PM ET
World Series of Fighting (WSoF) returns to GFL.tv on May 2 with “World Series of Fighting – Wesley Team vs Da Luta 2”. The event is a stacked card featuring many of Central America’s top up and coming MMA fighters. The main event will be headlined by a WSoF Central America Welterweight Title fight.
In the main event, for the inaugural WSoF Central America Welterweight Championship, Domingo “El Toro” Estrada takes on Cristan “Robocop” Soto. Estrada brings a strong wrestling game into the cage and will be looking for the takedown where he can work his ground and pound. Soto is looking to bounce back from a tough loss and has managed to find himself in a title fight. Soto plans to stay on his feet and attack Estrada with leg kicks and punches. Soto has KO power in both hands so this fight should be explosive.
In the co-main event, the WSoF Central America Lightweight Title will be on the line when Armando “Batusai” Aguilar fights Marcial “La Fibra” Florez. Aguilar is a relentless wrestler and is always looking to press the action. He is big for a lightweight and favors a fight that is fought on the ground with him on top working for dominant position or going for a submission. Florez is a well-rounded fighter who likes to mix his grappling with his striking. Florez has an iron jaw and fists of fury so don’t blink. He doesn’t mind stepping into the danger zone if he can connect with his shots too. This will be a fight that showcases two very different styles to fighting so that makes for an interesting chess match in the cage.
The rest of the card will showcase the rising stars of Central America as they look to turn heads and open the eyes of the WSoF staff and get another opportunity to fight on a future card on NBC Sports in the United States. There is plenty at stake for each and every athlete on the card and they will all be looking for the KO or submission.
WSOF continues to change the MMA landscape. Check out their return to Central America with “World Series of Fighting – Wesley Team vs Da Luta 2” which can be ordered now on GFL.tv.For full fight card and more details about this event, visit gfl.tv or click here
