Tuff-n-Uff: The Future Stars of MMA April 11
Fri Apr 11 10:00PM ET
“Tuff-N-Uff: The Future Stars of Mixed Martial Arts” will host a four-woman strawweight tournament, and the winner will be rewarded with a professional fight contract with Invicta Fighting Championships.
“Tuff-N-Uff has long supported women’s martial arts, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have some of the best ladies in the game compete in our cage,” Tuff-N-Uff Vice President Jeff Meyer said. “The chance to partner with the best all-women’s MMA organization in the sport for this unique opportunity was a natural fit for us, and I’m looking forward to seeing this tournament play out.”
The four women involved in the tournament include Texas’ Jianna Denizard (5-2), Las Vegas’ own Jamie Moyle (3-2), Arkansas’ Laura Uyeda (5-0) and California’s Molly Wren-Holmes (4-0).
The opening round of the bracket takes place at Tuff-N-Uff’s April 11 fight card at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Denizard comes to the tournament on the strength of her quality striking. However, she also boasts two submission wins on her record, proving she’s a threat wherever the fight takes place. At 5-foot-7, Denizard will be the tallest of the four competitors; and she knows how to use every inch of her reach to her advantage, utilizing her range to force opponents to over-extend themselves and fall prey to counters.
Moyle has already faced the likes of undefeated four-time Invicta FC veteran Tecia Torres during her time in the amateur ranks, and she comes from one of the best camps in the world in Syndicate MMA. Moyle possesses some of the sharpest techniques in amateur MMA today, and her ability to put pressure on opponents is her strongest asset. Despite being the smallest competitor out of the four, no opponent will be able to take her lightly.
Uyeda is probably the best all-around athlete in the tournament. She earned a bronze medal in the No-Gi Worlds 2012, and in college earned a full athletic scholarship to New Orleans University at Monroe. Her ground game is clearly her strength. However, she also possesses a knockout win on her record and has taken two victories by decision.
Wren-Holmes is the craftiest MMA practitioner in the tournament, earning comparisons to a former Tuff-N-Uff competitor, Mike Pyle. No matter what position or situation Wren-Holmes is in, she’ll find a way to use it to inflict some pain on her opponent. The Californian is adept at landing the first and last punch of any exchange, as well. This helps her gain advantages over opponents not only physically, but mentally. She’s finished three of her four bouts by knockout.
The winners of the two April 11 semifinal bouts will meet in the tournament final on June 7 at Thomas and Mack Center.
Tuff-N-Uff Productions, Inc. (www.tuffnuff.com) is the nation’s premier amateur mixed martial arts promotion. Founded in 1994, Tuff-N-Uff has helped many amateur fighters gain the experience needed to pursue professional fight careers. Tuff-N-Uff is proud to have helped groom the following professional fighters: Ronda Rousey, Ryan Couture, Marina Shafir, Chris Holdsworth and Jessamyn Duke.

Pride and Glory 7
Sat Apr 12 4:00AM ET
Pride And Glory debuts on GFL on April 12 with top notch Muay Thai featuring a world title fight along with several exciting contender matches.
In the main event, for the Pride And Glory Full Rules Muay Thai World Title, Andrew “KO” Keogh takes on Brett Johnston. Keogh is known for his one-punch KO power and likes to throw haymakers with high volume. Keogh is always looking for the stoppage and loves to mix it up right from the beginning. Keogh doesn’t waste anytime once the opening bell rings so expect fireworks in the first round. Johnston loves to mix up his attacks and fights with a reckless abandon that makes him a wildcard in every fight. Expect the unexpected as these two brave gladiators go for gold.
In other action, Nic Reiter fights Kosta Masmanidis. Reiter always throws devastating combos and looks for the KO in every fight. Masmanidis is a gritty fighter with an iron chin and will let his hands and feet go as he pushes back against the heavy punching power of Reiter.
Roy Wills battles Dane Beauchamp. Wills embodies the life of a Muay Thai fighter and lives and breathes it every day. He is ferocious with knees and elbows and his kicks are bone rattling. Beauchamp is supremely confident and comes into every battle looking to seek and destroy. Both of these fighters are sitting on a powder keg that will explode on April 12.
Petchtanong Banchamek squares off with Jake Moulden. These two could fight in a telephone booth as there will be no backing up. Banchamek is dangerous in the clinch and his knees are world class. Moulden will have to use his height and score with hooks and overhands along with front kicks to keep Banchamek from clinching up.
If you love nonstop, full-throttle striking, then “Pride and Glory 7” is must-see TV. Watch as the brave warriors display the science of the eight limbs and use punches, kicks, knees and elbows and do it the for a the first time to a worldwide audience on April 12.

Battle for the Border 3
Sat Apr 12 9:00PM ET
Battle For The Border III “Nations Collide” makes its debut on GFL.tv on April 12 from the Cranbrook Memorial Arena in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada. Battle For the Border is looking to knock down the door on the world stage as they present their brand of MMA! The 10-bout pro/am card will feature several of the top rising stars on the West Coast of Canada.
In the main event, WSOF vet Mike Kent (10-4) battles Alfonso Gonzales (4-0) in a light heavyweight scrap. Kent is a world class fighter who has always fought top competition. Kent brings a wealth of knowledge and an all-around game into the cage. Kent’s record is littered with KOs and he has only fought to a decision twice in his career. Expect Kent to let the leather fly and earn the respect of his opponent in the opening seconds. Gonzales hails from Washington State and makes the trek north for the biggest fight of his career. Gonzales is an undefeated fighter and has ended every fight via KO or submission. Gonzales is especially dangerous off of his back where he has caught two opponents in a triangle choke. If the fight hits the mat and Gonzales is on the bottom expect him to be throwing up triangles and armbars in rapid succession.
In the co-main event, Mark Dobie (5-6) fights UFC veteran Cody McKenzie (14-5). Dobie looks to get back in the win column after a promising start to his career that notched him a 4-fight win streak in 2012. Dobie is another fighter who likes to take chances inside the cage and his fighting style has made him a fan favorite wherever he fights. Dobie is always swinging for the fences and trying to improve his position on the ground to go for a submission. This will be McKenzie’s first fight since his stint with the UFC. McKenzie spent three years with the UFC beginning with TUF and amassed 4 wins in the world’s premier MMA organization during that span. Look for McKenzie to come out with both guns blazing and stay true to his wild style as he looks to turn heads once again and take home a decisive win.
The heavyweights tangle when Jordan Tracey (3-3) takes on Dan Amyotte (1-0). The fists are sure to be flying in this battle as Tracey and Amyotte are cut from the same cloth as neither fighter has ever gone to decision. Tracey packs power in both hands and Amyotte has the same ability to end a fight with one flush punch. Don’t blink when these two brahma bulls hook horns in the center of the cage. The chances of this fight going to decision are slim to none.
In the amateur ranks, Donovan Hack (4-0) battles Ryan Rohovich (4-0) for the Welterweight Championship. Rohovich holds two KO victories to his credit and both in the first round, while also adding two submissions to his record. Rohovich is a powerhouse at 170 lb and has one-punch KO power in both hands but is just as dangerous on the ground. Rohovich and Hack are both undefeated and this fight is to determine who is number one. On a stacked card, this could be the fight of the night.

Sat Apr 12 7:00PM ET
Xtreme Fight Events returns to the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on April 12 with “XFE 39”. XFE is the #1 MMA organization in Pennsylvania and has expanded across the Northeast and now also the Southeast. Look for “XFE 39” to up the ante as XFE throws down the gauntlet.
In the main event, Bellator veteran Brett “Youngblood” Martinez (6-1) takes center stage to fight Josh Booher (3-2). Martinez has only gone to decision once in his career and is always looking to stand in the cage and bring the action to his opponent. Martinez never backs up and is always looking to finish, as 5 of his wins have come via stoppage. Martinez is a grizzled fighter who has fought tough competition his whole career and you can bet another tough test stands in his way when he faces Booher. Booher will be the smaller fighter in the cage so he will have to utilize his explosiveness. All 3 of Booher’s wins have come via stoppage and he will need to raise his intensity level even more as he faces Martinez. Look for a shootout in this main event.
In another featured pro fight, Christopher Pintado (0-1) battles Stephfond Ewins (0-0). Pintado is looking to even his record to .500 after taking a tough loss in his pro debut. Before that, Pintado earned a 5-1 record as an amateur and exhibited a slick submission game. Look for Pintado to get back to his roots and try and get the fight to the mat where he can work his grappling game. Ewins is making his pro debut after going 5-2 as an amateur. Ewins is a well-rounded fighter who relies on his wrestling to get him the victory. Ewins loves to grind his opponents down until their cardio is dust. If the fight does hit the mat, expect Ewins to use his wrestling to try and control the grappling of Pintado. This could turn into a striking war as both men might be content to let their hands go.
Timothy Kunkel (4-1) battles Dean Lavin Jr. (2-6) in a battle of high risk-high reward fighters. Kunkel is on a 3 fight winning streak and looks to make it 4 in a row against Lavin Jr. Kunkel fights with a high impact style as he has KO power in both hands and his wrestling takedowns are brutal on his opponents. Kunkel finished his last opponent off with a KO slam in under 30 seconds. Lavin Jr. is an XFE veteran and this will be his toughest test to date. Lavin Jr. has been susceptible to submissions in the past but has worked on his submission defense relentlessly and packs KO power in both fists, making him a very dangerous opponent. Expect fireworks from these two.

Off the Chain – The Storm is Coming
Sat Apr 12 7:00PM ET
Off the Chain (OTC) returns on GFL with “OTC 4 – The Storm Is Coming” on April 12 from the Summit Arena in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This event brings together all of the top fighters in Arkansas and the surrounding area as OTC puts on another stacked pro/am card for the rabid fans of the area.
In the main event, Dave Burrow (8-4) fights David Lindsay (5-7) in a rematch the two had back in 2013 where Lindsay won in the second round via choke. Burrow looks for revenge and won a fight in the meantime while constantly improving his technique in the gym. None of Burrow’s fights have ever gone to decision and his fast paced, crowd pleasing style makes him a dangerous fighter against anyone in his division. Burrow is a solid striker, but his real bread and butter is on the mat where he is a grappling wizard and loves to go for the submission anytime the fight hits the mat. Lindsay has dropped 3 in a row since his victory over Burrow and desperately needs to get back on track. Beating an opponent once in the cage is a big enough chore, now Lindsay finds himself having to repeat his performance and do it again. Lindsay is determined to make his mark in the sport and that starts on April 12 with a win over Burrow. Expect Lindsay to go for broke in the early going as he wants to take Burrow out again and prove he is still a rising star in the featherweight division.
In the co-main event, Enoch Bricker (2-5) battles Dawond Pickney (3-1). Bricker is an exciting fighter and has only been out of the first round once! Don’t blink as Bricker comes out of the gate like a Tasmanian devil and will be a ball of fury for as long as the fight goes. Pickney is on a 2-fight win streak and carries KO power in both hands but also has the cardio to go a full three rounds while keeping the pressure and intensity on his opponent every minute of the fight. These two are bound to be in the running for fight of the night when they lock horns.
Christopher Anthony (3-1) fights Nolan Norwood (5-2) in other action. Anthony has won 3 in a row all via TKO. Anthony’s striking is top notch and anyone that has stood with him and traded has felt his power and finished the fight looking up at the lights. Norwood could possess the antidote to Anthony’s striking as Norwood is a well-rounded fighter with great hands, but also has wrestling and submissions to go along with his striking. These two middleweights are going to be looking to take one another out in spectacular fashion which is great news for fight fans.
Don’t miss “OTC 4 – The Storm Is Coming” presented by Off the Chain on April 12. Watch all the action and witness the champions of tomorrow as they fight today, live on the GFL Combat Sports Network exclusively on iPPV.For full fight card and more details about this event, visit gfl.tv or click here
Sat Apr 12 7:00PM ET
Xtreme Fight Events comes to the Bon Secours Wellness Center in Greenville, South Carolina on April 12 with “XFE 40”. XFE is the #1 MMA organization in Pennsylvania and has expanded to the Northeast and now the Southeast with this stacked card in the Palmetto State. Check out this stacked, huge 21-bout card as some of the toughest fighters in the area duke it out.
In the main event, Shane “The Godfather” Crenshaw (7-4) takes on Peter Grimes (10-7). Crenshaw won a title with another organization in his last fight and has been the cream of the crop in the lightweight division in the region for some time. Crenshaw is a grinder and usually outworks his opponents over three rounds to earn a decision. In his previous title fight he submitted his opponent in the fourth round (championship round) so he has shown an ability to finish fights recently too. Look for Crenshaw to be relentless in going for the takedown and if he lands it he will use his ground and pound to score points. Grimes hails from Illinois but is making the trip down South to be a part of the stacked card. Most of Grimes fights end before the final bell so look for him to come out and try and take the fight to Crenshaw. Grimes leaves himself vulnerable to attacks from his opponent, but his unorthodox style has garnered him success with every promotion he has fought for.
In the co-main event, Matthew Tran (3-2) battles Charles Kessinger (2-3) in a bantamweight fight of highly touted prospects. Tran is a relentless wrestler who loves to break his opponents’ wills inside the cage. Tran has strong takedowns, so look for him to get the fight to the mat early and often if need be. Kessinger looks to bring his record to .500 and to do that he will have to be able to thwart the early onslaught from Tran. Kessinger has never been to a decision so don’t blink as he can end the fight with a KO or submission. One of these men will add another notch to their belt and rise up the ladder in the bantamweight division with a win.
For the Lightweight Title, Caleb Savage (6-4) and Nick Beal (8-3) square off. Savage is a huge lightweight and looks to add another title to his growing collection. Savage has reeled off 3 wins in a row all via stoppage and has proved to be dangerous wherever the fight goes. Look for Savage to unleash a barrage of strikes to test the chin of Beal in the early going. Beal is a determined and unbreakable fighter who also has multiple titles in his possession already. This fight could steal the show as Beal is happy to bang with anyone he faces and if that’s the case then these two will blow the roof off of the house.
