The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation is pleased to present our partner for the execution of the World Championships – Las Vegas promoter Tuff-N-Uff.

The IMMAF has partnered with local promoter Jeff Meyer and Las Vegas’ own “Tuff-N-Uff: The Future Stars of Mixed Martial Arts” to present the first-ever amateur MMA world championships June 30th to July 5th . The IMMAF selected Tuff-N-Uff Productions to partner in  hosting the tournament because of their excellent reputation and proven experience in Las Vegas.

Operating since 1994 in the market, Tuff n Uff has promoted pioneering events such as the first MMA competition exclusively for women in Nevada. The vision for moving the sport forward is what bonds this partnership, with both sides committed to providing the athletes with what they need for a safe and exciting competition in the forthcoming challenge.

At Tuff-N-Uff, we’ve always strived to put on the best amateur events in the nation,” Tuff-N-Uff CEO and co-founder Jeff Meyer said. “Now we’re extremely excited to partner with the IMMAF and welcome in the best amateur fighters in the world in order to crown true world champions. This is going to be an incredible event and memorable for both fans and competitors alike.”

Tuff-N-Uff was founded with the purpose of helping promote and lobby for the sanctioning of amateur MMA events in the United States, in addition to other aspects of combat sports. The company was founded by the late Barry Meyer, a black belt in taekwondo and former hedge fund trader, who served as president of the organization until his death in 2013. The organization has since been run by his father, Burt Meyer.

We can’t underestimate the importance of having a strong partner in the practical execution of the World Championships. It is a sports event that will demand a lot from everyone involved and we’re positive that “Tuff-N-Uff”, with their experience and expertise, are more than up for the task” says IMMAF President Bertrand Amoussou.

Since you are the new promoter, I have questions.  Will you also allow IMMAF officials to corner fighters?  Will you allow IMMAF officials who corner fighters to give the fighters rules meeting while wrapping one of his fighters hands?  Do feel it is appropriate for an IMMAF official to be cornering fighters in his IMMAF officials shirt?  Does any of this seem like a conflict of interest:?

All I can say right now is that there will be significant changes from the last promoter and the tournament in March and we will be working to eliminate any possible issues or conflicts of interest. Hope this helps

It does, thanks for your reply.  You just can't have officials from a sanctioning body also bring fighters to an event, it casts everyone in a bad light.  Also, my advice to you is take the reins of this event.  Don't leave it to IMMAF to promote or it will end like the past event.

For the record Tuff I was glad to hear you are taking over the event.  Your reputation for professionalism and the quality of your shows should improve this tourny dramatically.  It really needed the premier amatuer promoter in all of MMA.

Now that you're involved I will go to the event, and I know the quality of the fights will not be overshadowed by horrible promotion.  Thats what was lost in the last event, there really were some good fights.

Thanks very much for the nice compliment!

I'm confident that the tournament will run smooth and that it will be a great experience for all.
