Pack the Mack Official Fight Card

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tuff-N-Uff is Ready to Pack the Mack Once Again June 17

LAS VEGAS — Fight fans in Las Vegas are in for a treat on Saturday, June 17, as legendary amateur Mixed Martial Arts promotion, Tuff-N-Uff, is set to unleash another amazing night of action. The fourth annual “Pack the Mack” event is upon the city and, aside from the usual fireworks that explode inside the Tuff-N-Uff cage, SIX championship belts will be up for grabs.

But here’s the best part: tickets to the event will cost nothing.

Tuff-N-Uff started the annual affair in 2014 and has continued to treat local MMA fans with the promotion’s biggest event of the year, all for free.

Tuff-N-Uff has put together a massive roster with combatants coming from Las Vegas, California, Arizona, Utah, Kansas, Colorado and Ohio.  “Pack the Mack” truly is a nationwide affair featuring the absolute best amateur MMA fighters refining their tools and showing off their skills before turning pro.

The main event will see Crystal Demopolous (5-1) taking on Cheyanne Vlismas (7-6-1) for the Tuff-N-Uff women’s strawweight championship. Demopolous, who fights out of Ronin Training Center in Cleveland, Ohio, is coming off an amazing first-round stoppage last month at Mayhem in Mesquite XI. Xtreme Couture’s Vlismas is looking to defend her title and curtail her foe’s comeback hot streak in what should be an exciting battle.

Twin brothers Josh and John Kim, also known as the Twin Dragons fighting out of ISD in San Diego, will both be putting it all on the line for a title in the bantamweight and featherweight classes.

It all goes down inside the famed Thomas & Mack Center, on the campus of UNLV, just east of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip on Tropicana Blvd. The doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the first of the evening’s bouts to begin at  6pm.


Fight fans can print tickets at home by visiting unlvtickets.com. “Pack the Mack” has set the world record for amateur MMA event attendance at 16,218 fans in years past. Be part of history and help us Pack the Mack!

Tuff-N-Uff “Pack the Mack” is presented by Hooters Hotel and Casino and is also sponsored by Shango Premium Cannabis, Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys, Las Vegas Neck and Back Clinics, One Nevada Credit Union, Stealthletics Gear, Tru Fusion, United Nissan Las Vegas Lighting, Palmer Electric, Orange Theory Fitness, Port of Subs, Sports Clips, Terrible Herbst, Metro PCS and All Nevada Insurance.
