Jessica Bednark and Tuff-N-Uff Productions

On July 10th, 2009, Tuff-N-Uff made Las Vegas history with an all female MMA card.
The show was at the packed Orleans Arena, and 20 female mixed martial artisits battled it out in the ring.
According to Barry Meyer, president of Tuff-N-Uff Productions, it was the largest attended female MMA event in Las Vegas history.
You can read a full write up on the event here.

A really good thing about this even is that a portion of the proceeds from this event went to help Jessica Bednark.
In case you didn't know, Jessica is a pro MMA fighter who suffered a ruptured artery in her brain while training back in May.
Jessica has no health insurance, and her boyfriend's brother Derek Gould, is collecting donations.
Derek can be reached at, and donations can be sent to 15824 Neon St. NW, Ramsey, MN 55303.
A paypal account has also been set up for Jessica, and paypal donations can be sent to

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jessica and I pray for a complete and total recovery for this brave young lady.
