On Saturday as Tuff-N-Uff was in town for Mayhem in Mesquite VIII at the CasaBlanca Resort.

The amateur mixed martial arts organization, which bills itself as growing the “future stars of MMA,” showcased 22 fighters across 11 fights, culminating with the night’s main event, the Tuff-N-Uff featherweight title bout between Julius Descheenie and Jordan “The Monkey King” Leavitt.

Descheenie was the aggressor. He opened with a kick to the shin and attempted to get Leavitt on the ground, but it was on the ground where Leavitt looked most comfortable. While on his back, Leavitt countered Descheenie, landing a kick to the face. The two exchanged pleasantries in the first round without any distinct advantage on the side of either fighter. Leavitt entered the second round with a clear initiative: keep the fight on the ground. Leavitt succeeded, and Descheenie tapped out to a kimura submission just over a minute into the second round.

“It was really fun, no adrenaline, I was super relaxed,” Leavitt said after the fight. “I knew I prepared the way I was supposed to so I expected to win.”

Six of the 11 fights were regional qualifying bouts for the USA Mixed Martial Arts Federation (UMMAF). The winners of those six fights are moving on to fight April 2 in Phoenix, where the winners of that event will move on to represent the United States in the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation tournament.
