With a sell-out crowd, Ringside Unified Fighting Nation, or RUF Nation, put on quite a show this past Sunday in Glendale, AZ. From the first fight on the preliminary card to the final heavyweight bout in the ‘Road to ONE’ tournament, the hits and fighters were nonstop. Fighters came in from all over the southwest to participate in one of the first mixed-martial arts events allowing a limited fan attendance, all the way from Hawaii to Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and all the way from El Paso.

A total of sixteen bouts were held, with only two of those fights going the distance and to the judges. From rear naked chokes, arm-bars and knockouts, there was a finish for everyone’s liking. With the success of this event, we’re looking forward to the next RUF Nation MMA event!
