The fifth installment of the popular submission only contest, TUFF, was held on Saturday 19th November. The Circus Tavern in Purfleet appears to be its permanent home, and it's a decent sized venue, large enough to accomodate the big stage and the audience around it but not so large that it becomes cavernous.

TUFF 5 was bigger and even better than the previous TUFF contests (TUFF 3 report, TUFF 4 report), with over 18 fights. There was added prestige too as the event was streamed live over on It was also nice of the organisers to invite my brand, Meerkatsu, among the list of official sponsors.

Here are some action photos taken by me:
