Last night I was on photography duty capturing the action at the TUFF Invitational event in Purfleet, Essex. This was the third of their regular events and it proved to be an action packed line-up featuring an excellent and diverse array of the UK's grappling talent. The format is simple - a submission only tournament (15 or 20 minutes). If no submission occurs, then it will go to EBI overtime rules (read more here).





The full line-up was as follows:

Juniors:
Harry Innes vs Darren Adams
Isa Rahman vs Joshua Burke
Khia Law vs Gabby Hall
Aman Kumar vs Jamie Robinson
Mounir Baaziz vs Cameron Hibbert

Faris Ben-Lamkadem vs Christian Vaquero
