Tuff-N-Uff returns to South Point Arena on May 26 for Memorial Day weekend Festibrawl

May 23, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Las Vegas fight fans know that Memorial Day weekend in Sin City means it's time for spectacular mixed martial arts action, and this year is no exception. Tuff-N-Uff is going to extend your weekend entertainment with a special Sunday card "Tuff-N-Uff: The Future Stars of MMA" returns to Las Vegas' South Point Arena on Sunday, May 26, for the latest installment of its now-legendary nights of entertainment filled with high-paced MMA action, live music, free beer sampling and some of Las Vegas' finest BBQ for the promotion's one-of-a-kind "Festibrawl."

"Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas has long been a special holiday for MMA fans, and we're happy to once again be a part of the festivities by continuing our partnership with South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa to present the brightest prospects in MMA today," Tuff-N-Uff president Barry Meyer said. "This Memorial Day weekend we'll have three championship fights, the return of Montel Williams Jr., free beer samplings, great BBQ and a DJ spinning throughout the night. It's going to be another incredible night of entertainment."

The "Festibrawl" pre-party, which includes food, drinks and live music, starts at 5:30 p.m. The night's first fight is at 7 p.m. The "Tuff-N-Uff: Festibrawl" main event sees undefeated Tuff-N-Uff middleweight champion Dylan Jahrling (5-0) seek the first defense of his belt against former Tuff-N-Uff light heavyweight titleholder Khalil Rountree (3-1).

Wand Fight Team product Rountree recently relinquished his 205-pound title and elected to drop down a division in hopes of adding another belt to his trophy case. He now meets House of Ryu's Jahrling in a fight that will determine one of Las Vegas' brightest future stars and give the winner bragging rights over his cross-town rival.

In additional featured action, the vacant Tuff-N-Uff women's bantamweight title will be on the line as Utah's Jules Winter (4-0) meets California's Jessica Martinez (2-3-1).

Winter, who represents Utah's Hidden Valley Mixed Martial Arts, makes her Tuff-N-Uff debut as the reigning SteelFist Fight Night champion. She'll look to add the Tuff-N-Uff belt by downing Kings MMA product Martinez, who returns to the promotion for the first time since 2010.

And in the card's third championship bout, nine-time Tuff-N-Uff veteran Shane "Biggs" Johnson (6-2-1) puts his six-fight unbeaten streak on the line in a 165-pound title defense against undefeated prospect A.J. Williams (2-0), a Syndicate MMA product who recently delivered a "Knockout of the Year" candidate with a high-kick stoppage of Sam Edwards.

In a special welterweight attraction, two-time Tuff-N-Uff veteran and Xtreme Couture fighter Montel Williams Jr. (1-1), the son of legendary talk-show host Montel Williams, meets debuting TapouT fighter Jason Weyrich (0-0).

In addition to the night's headlining contests, a full lineup of aspiring amateur fighters from some of the world's top academies -- including 10th Planet Corona, House of Ryu, Kings MMA, Syndicate MMA, TapouT, UFC Gym, Wand Fight Team and Xtreme Couture -- will compete at Tuff-N-Uff's May 26 "Festibrawl."

Tickets for the event, which start at just $25, are available by calling the South Point Arena Box Office at (702) 797-8055 or online at SouthPointArena.com.
