Anaheim, CA - Sixteen years and one day after he promoted his first mixed martial arts competition, Tuff-N-Uff Productions, Inc., President Barry Meyer will be inducted into the Masters Hall of Fame during the Eleventh Annual Awards Ceremonies on Saturday, June 19, 2010, at the Anaheim Hilton in Anaheim, California. Meyer, who is a 1st Degree Black Belt in taekwando, first became interested in mixed martial arts after watching the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship in 1993. Just seven months later he was presenting an amateur kickboxing tournament in his high school gymnasium under the Tuff-N-Uff name.
Barry Meyer began his own martial arts career studying taekwondo at age 5, and was awarded a black belt at age 12. He also trained in several other arts, including kung-fu, jiu-jitsu, and kickboxing. However it was the promotion of the martial arts that became his true passion, and he soon proved himself in that field. Among Meyer’s accomplishments are co-promoting the Chuck Norris World Combat League, promoting the North American trials of the Abu-Dhabi Combat Championships, obtaining one of the first MMA licenses in Nevada, and successfully lobbying for approval of amateur status for MMA in Nevada.
“We are dedicated to finding the future stars of mixed martial arts,”Since Tuff-N-Uff promoted its first official amateur MMA match in Las Vegas in 2003, the organization has become “the” proving ground for amateur MMA fighters hoping to turn professional. “We are dedicated to finding the future stars of mixed martial arts,” says Meyer. His group promoted the first MMA tournament and the first MMA and Kickboxing combined event in Nevada, and was the first to present an all-female MMA card. “We are constantly innovating the sport and creating champions,” at Tuff-N-Uff.
