Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MMA/TuffnUff-Mayhem-in-Mesquite-VI/2750
Tuff-N-Uff returns to GFL on March 14 as it presents “Mayhem in Mesquite VI” from the Casablanca Resort Hotel Casino in Mesquite, Nevada. Tuff N-Uff is one of the premier proving grounds for amateur MMA and always has stacked cards featuring the rising stars from the most famous gyms around the West. Tune in to see the stars of tomorrow compete today.
For the Tuff-N-Uff Lightweight Title, Champion Michael Hobby (6-1) battles Joshua Rodda (5-1). Hobby has won 6 fights in a row with the last 3 being title fights. Hobby is a big lightweight and has shown to have endless cardio when he is in the cage. Hobby is well-rounded and can finish a fight with his standup or grappling. Hobby is close to transitioning into a pro, and this fight might be his last as an amateur. Rodda, who is riding a 3 fight winning streak, is a formidable force who always brings an aggressive style into his fights. Rodda never backs up in the cage and is always putting the pressure on his opponent either by throwing strikes, going for takedowns or working on the mat. Look for Hobby and Rodda to have a huge collision in the opening round as each man tries to impose his will. For the winner, he will walk away a champion.
Caleb Contreras (4-1) fights Derrick Brown (10-6). This could be a de facto #1 Contender fight for the main event winner. Contreras holds a 155lb title already and a strong showing here will put him in line for another title shot. Contreras has only one loss to his record, a split decision, and many observers feel he should have won that fight out right. Look for Contreras to control the spacing in the standup and work a takedown against the cage if he can find an opening. Brown is on a 5-fight winning streak, 3 via stoppage and looks to continue his ascent up the ladder with a highlight reel win over Contreras. Brown is a grinder who is constantly on the attack. Brown also packs quite a wallop with his strikes. Look for his fists to be flying.
Kaytlin Neil (3-1) takes on Brieta “Tank Girl” Carpenter (4-1). Neil is a rising star in the women’s division who breaks away in the score cards as her style of constant force and assertiveness overwhelms her opponents. She looks to build on that by mixing up her attacks more and going for a finish this time around. Carpenter who hails from California has 3 wins in the first round, two by KO and one by submission so she is ready to finish this fight in record time. Don’t blink.
