Meet my son Terez..he's a good kid..

Many Tuff-N-Uff events have been titled “The Future Stars of MMA,” but Friday’s fights at The Orleans promise to live up to that hype more than any other. The event, which starts at 7 p.m., features Ryan Couture’s (5-1) last amateur bout, when he takes on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu prodigy Sean Bollinger (1-0) for the vacant 155-pound Tuff-N-Uff championship. “My goal was to make it as a pro, so I’ve been trying to gauge where I am with each passing fight,” said Couture, who has won his last four fights by submission. “After the last couple, I’ve felt like I was at that level.” Despite Couture’s pedigree as the son of UFC Hall of Fame fighter Randy Couture, the 27-year-old didn’t initially think he would become a professional fighter. “If you had asked me two-and-a-half to three years ago if I’d ever fight for a living, I would have laughed and said no way,” he said. –Las Vegas Sun
