Mayhem in Mesquite VII brings the thrilling action of live cage fighting back to CasaBlanca Resort Casino Golf and Spa. Barry Meyer’s World Famous Tuff-N-Uff Future Stars of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) will showcase their premier top prospects of MMA athletes for Mayhem in Mesquite VII. The growing success of this crowd-favorite event offers fans the very real possibility of witnessing the next “Future Star of MMA” at the action-packed Saturday night event.
Tuff-N-Uff is billed as the nation’s premier amateur mixed martial arts league. Jeff Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of Tuff-N-Uff Productions, Inc., told The Independent, “Our mission is to provide athletes a safe environment to test their skills and to provide fans affordable and exciting mixed martial arts events. Tuff-N-Uff is proud of its long history dating back to our first event on June 18, 1994. We’ve successfully helped many athletes transition into the pro MMA ranks, including 29 athletes that have fought in the UFC after fighting for Tuff-N-Uff. Arguably, the most famous fighter in the history of MMA, Ronda Rousey, fought for Tuff-N-Uff as an amateur twice in Las Vegas.”
“Tuff-N-Uff is thrilled to partner with CasaBlanca in Mesquite, Nevada,” Meyer said. “Our staff, fighters, and fans all really enjoy the experience of ‘getting out of dodge’ twice a year when the CasaBlanca plays host to Tuff-N-Uff’s Mayhem in Mesquite. Being that its only a short drive from Las Vegas and St. George, we are fortunate to have athletes competing from both cities. The event is well attended by fans from Las Vegas, Mesquite, and St. George. As most amateur athletes have to travel to compete when they turn pro, Mayhem in Mesquite VII is a perfect opportunity to introduce them to the challenges that come with making weight and acclimating to a different city than they’re used to.”
