A 24-year old combat sports organization, the Las Vegas-based TUFF-N- UFF presents the best amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) action in the nation. It has given rise to some of the biggest stars in the sport today, including UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, as well UFC and Strikeforce veteran Ryan Couture, UFC welterweight Alan Jouban and UFC Light Heavyweight Khalil Rountree.

TUFF-N- UFF is committed to growing the sport of MMA and building the “Future Stars of MMA” and on Saturday, May 19 at 7 p.m. Mesquite Gaming is bringing you some of the best with Mayhem in Mesquite XIV.

Jaylon “New Breed” Bates out of Portland City Boxing is a man on a mission. Starting his MMA career with an impressive four wins and zero losses, Jaylon won his last fight via a nasty arm-bar submission. He now has his sights set on going for the 135-pound title against Chris “lil Savage” Elisarrars. These two warriors are the main event and look to bring the house down with nonstop action.

The co-main event features a local Las Vegas fight fan favorite, Nick Perez (4-3-1) fighting out of Xtreme Couture competing against Elijah Legget (3-1) out of Icon MMA in San Diego. Nick looked very impressive in his last win over Bryce Ewing via Rear Naked choke at Tuff-N-Uff’s March 30 event. Always training and trying to stay in the cage, Nick feels it’s time to add a 145-pound title to his résumé and keep the Tuff-N-Uff belt in its Las Vegas home.
