Wednesday night, three amateur females fights took place at the South Pointe Casino in Las Vegas, as Tuff-n-uff held their “Feastibrawl” card.

In the co-main event of the evening, Arizona’s Cortney Casey got another armbar win over Rachael Cummins in a rematch of their September bout. (Cummins claimed she didn’t tap in their first bout.) Casey (6-2) left no doubt this time, as Cummins tapped in the third round. Casey racks up her fifth straight win, and is eying a pro debut in 2013.

In a featured bout, Jillian Lybarger evens her record to 5-5 as she got a first round TKO victory over Stephanie Gonzalez. Lybarger vastly improved in this match, especially in her striking, as she moved to Drysdale MMA for her training camp.

In the other women’s bout, Mercedes White defeated Danielle Mack in White’s MMA debut. White’s accurate striking made the difference in her unanimous decision victory.

Tuff-n-uff also presented the Mia Hayes Inspiration Award belt to Sam Wilson in absentia. Wilson has booked over 100 women’s bouts for the promotion, and continues to help female fighters find fights throughout the U.S.

Tuff-n-uff returns Jan. 18. Matches will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
