- IMMAF WORLD AMATEUR MMA RANKINGS UPDATED FOLLOWING DOPING SUSPENSIONS
(London. 11 January 2016) Following the suspension of two IMMAF athletes for doping offences in 2016, the IMMAF World Amateur MMA Rankings have been updated accordingly:
Dallas Jennings (USA) has been stripped of his 612 points accrued at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships at UFC International Fight Week in July. The points deduction is now reflected in Team USA’s overall ranking score, which sees the team drop down one place to 5th.
Aleksandra Rola (Poland) has been stripped of her 548 points accrued at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships at UFC International Fight Week in July. The points deduction is now reflected in Team Poland’s ranking overall score, which sees the team drop down one place to 10th.
The revisions see Team Ireland move up to 4th spot in the World Amateur MMA Rankings and Team New Zealand step up to 9th. The 2016 IMMAF World Championships was the sole IMMAF event participated in by the athletes, and so the points deduction sees both eliminated from the athlete rankings.
The Future Stars of MMA Comes To Henderson!

The co-main event features Xtreme Couture’s Bryce “Wu-Tang” Harley who, after a controversial title loss, again competes for the championship in the men’s 115 lb. flyweight division — Tuff-N-Uff’s newest weight class — against the tough Tyler Ashton (2-1), fighting out of Team Wildman, located in Denver, CO.
The action-packed evening features some of the top amateur fighters in the country looking to follow in the footsteps of MMA stars who got their start at Tuff-N-Uff events like former champion Ronda Rousey, Alan Jouban, Chris Holdsworth, Ryan Couture and Ashlee Evans-Smith.

A more than 20-year old combat sports organization, the Las Vegas-based Tuff-N-Uff has presented the best amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) action in the nation since 2003, giving rise to the biggest star in the sport today, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Tuff-N-UFF is lead by Las Vegas locals Jeff Meyer and Bryan Lindsey. Tuff-N-Uff has helped grow the careers of many other MMA athletes including Jessamyn Duke, Ashlee Evans-Smith, Tonya Evinger, Jon Fitch, Jesse Forbes, Chris Holdsworth, Brad Imes, Jimmy Jones and Jesse Taylor. In 2013, Tuff-N-Uff became the first combat sports organization to be included on the UFC International Fight Week schedule of events. Tuff-N-Uff celebrated its historic 20th anniversary Saturday, June 7, 2014, with over 15,000 fans, in a sold-out live event inside the Thomas and Mack Center. In 2014 and 2015, Tuff-N-Uff partnered with the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) to present, as part of UFC International Fight Week 2014, the first-ever amateur MMA World Championships. Dedicated to its founder, the late Barry Meyer, Tuff-N-Uff is committed to the sport of MMA and building the “Future Stars of MMA.”
TUFF-N-UFF MMA Celebrated Their 20th Anniversary June 25, 2016 At The Thomas And Mack Center in Las Vegas.
The theme was “PACK THE MACK” to honor the co-founder, the late Barry Meyer, and pack the mack we did! I’m not sure of the numbers but I’m sure it was close to 15,000 or more attendees. I have been covering TUFF-N-UFF since 2010. For me, this was the most exciting TUFF-N-UFF fight card I have ever seen.
The night included KNOCKOUTS, Submissions, and VERY close Decisions! The fight announcers were UFC Champions Frank Mir and Forrest Griffin. It was a STAR studded night with ringside attendees which included UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, UFC Champ Miesha Tate, UFC’s Heather Clark, WSOF President Ray Sefo, Master MMA Coach Robert Follis and not to mention a number of the cast member from the present Ultimate Fighter TV show.

The Ultimate Fighter 23, Episode 7 Featured Our Very Own Local Las Vegas Fighter Jamie Moyle.
The first time I saw Jamie Moyle fight was for the Tuff-N-Uff promotion back in 2014 in Las Vegas. I remember thinking one day this girl is going to be a champion!
This past Wedensday, June 1, 2016 on TUF 23 Jamie Moyle was fighting Amanda Cooper. In my eyes, Jamie clearly had the first round, and found the 2nd round to be split. I thought for sure a 3rd round was coming. Then they announced the fight was over and announced Amanda Cooper the winner, I was in shock. I have nothing against Cooper, it was a great scrap, but you will find few viewers that didn’t think a 3rd round was coming.
I was shaking my head thinking how is this possible. Then the episode cut to Dana White saying, “ there should’ve been a 3rd Round”. Thursday morning I picked up the phone and called Syndicate MMA Head coach John Wood and asked for an interview to talk about his fighter Jamie Moyle..
Watch The Interview NOW!
We Are Pulling For You Jamie!
