Ladies MMA is Vegas Bound!
April 26th, 2003 – Mahoney’s Silver Nugget, Las Vegas, NV
‘It has been a long process to get approved, but we are finally confirmed 100% for the date of April 26th.’ starts TUFF-N-UFF promoter Barry Meyer. ‘We initiated the process last April, after the HOOKnSHOOT REVOLUTION event. That was the first ever all women’s MMA event on US soil, and it was then that we started the process for approval in Nevada. Now 10 months later, HOOKnSHOOT and TUFF-N-UFF Productions is ready to bring their all women’s MMA product to Las Vegas.’ states Meyer.
‘It’s been a long time coming!’ starts HnS matchmaker Miguel Iturrate. ‘We are working behind the scenes on putting together our card. We want to do 2 title matches in Las Vegas, to crown HOOKnSHOOT’s first women’s champions. We will be learning the process of the Nevada State Commission, and we are very proud to be accepted in our 4th commissioned state’ continues Iturrate, referring to . ‘We will announce the featured fighters as we get them signed!
The matchmaker admits ‘We will be watching the match next week between Amanda Buckner and Jennifer Howe in EXTREME CHALLENGE very closely. We want to followup with the women who fought on REVOLUTION. We are glad other events and shows have been giving the women opportunities, and we want HOOKnSHOOT TRAILBLAZERS to take it to another level altogether! The women have been working hard, and we want to present the best card we can!’
‘We know Judy Neff wont be fighting, since she is still recovering from knee surgery.’ states Iturrate. ‘We have invited her, and Judy will hopefully attempt to set a world bench press record in the ring. She is the #1 contender in HOOKnSHOOT at 135 lbs, and power lifting is another one of Judy’s passions. We want her to be a part of the show as well.’ concludes Iturrate.
Look for much more to come on HnS’ first ever event in Nevada.
