Ronda Rousey vs. Autumn Richardson

Tuff-N-Uff returns Nov. 12; at the Orleans Hotel & Casino's Mardi Gras Ballroom in Las Vegas on Friday, Nov. 12.

Olympian Ronda Rousey and undefeated Taylor Stratford headline the fight card that can be seen on

The ladies take center stage on Nov. 12, and Tuff-N-Uff kicks off an eight-woman female tournament that culminates in February and sees the promotion crown its first-ever 145-pound female champion. 

Leading the 145-pound tournament field is early favorite Ronda Rousey (1-0). While the 23-year-old Rousey is still young in her mixed martial arts career, the two-time Olympic judoka carries high expectations. Owning some of the most impressive credentials in the history of U.S. judo, Rousey counts a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Games among her many accomplishments.

Rousey takes on gritty Team Quest product Autumn Richardson (3-1) in an opening round contest. The 27-year-old Richardson, a four-time Tuff-N-Uff veteran, carries a two-fight win streak to the ring in her bid for Tuff-N-Uff's 145-pound crown.

The winner of this match will face the winner of Stratford vs. Dugger

The remainder of the eight-woman field will be announced in the coming weeks, but with four entrants already official, expect one of the most ambitious amateur tournaments ever held in the women's 145-pound class.
