From SuperBrawl promoter T. Jay Thompson:


Egan Inoue and Joe Doerksen
to Test New Super Brawl Weight Class


Friday night, November 2, the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii will rock as hometown favorite Egan Inoue and #10 world ranked (MMA Writers Assoc.) Joe Doerksen will battle for the inaugural Super Brawl middleweight Championship belt.

T.Jay Thompson said "We are excited about the new weight classes and even more excited about this match-up! These are truly two of the elite fighters in the world at this weight."

Inoue will be testing the waters at a lighter weight. He has retained the Super Brawl title at the old heavyweight class (over 200lbs) since beating Marcelo Tiger in a controversial match in 1999. "I look forward to fighting closer to my natural weight. I don’t think there are many people who can compete with me at 185lbs." Said Egan. When asked about how he thought the fight would go, Inoue responded, "I have been working hard on all aspects of my game. If he wants to stand up I will try to knock him out. If the fight goes to the ground I am confident I can submit him there."

Doerksen, a Winnipeg, Canada native, with a 19-2 professional record and 12 straight wins guarantees an exciting fight. He has never seen a decision. All 19 wins have come by way of submission. His only losses were to Matt Hughes and Eugene Jackson, both international stars. Joe is looking for a spot in one of the "big shows" (UFC, PRIDE, etc.) and sees Inoue as his meal ticket. "This will be a tough fight, but I know a lot of people will be paying attention to the outcome. I plan on leaving the islands with a new piece of hardware around my waist and respect from promoters world-wide." Joe Doerksen

Tickets will go on sale Monday morning at the Blaisdell Center box office. More match-ups to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ironheart Crown III: Exodus
Saturday, November 10, 2001
Hammond Civic Center Arena
5825 Sohl Avenue – Hammond, Indiana

IHC Poster
The Ironheart Crown Returns! Unhindered by the Boxing Commission’s decision to crack down on Mixed Martial Arts events in the state of Illinois, Chicago’s premiere Full-Contact Submission fighting event packs its bags and moves 30 minutes across the border to friendlier soil in Hammond, Indiana! This is exciting news for fight fans in Northwest Indiana, which has never before hosted an event of this calibre!

This year’s fight card features fifteen exciting fights which will include no less than four title bouts.

In the main event, returning IHC openweight champion, Vaughan "the Man, the Myth, the Legend" Palelei from Caique Jiu-Jitsu defends his title against the Ukranian Powerhouse, "Mighty" Milan Dimkovic, training under Shonie Carter!

Heavyweight Champion, Jim Theobald, training out of Champion Jiu-Jitsu and the All-American Academy faces a hungry new challenger in Steve Lauretto, from Keith Hackney’s Reality Combat!

With Adrian Serrano unable to make the weight in defense of his title, two powerful headhunters step up to fill the void in a Middleweight title bout! Jay Buck of Hackney’s Hellhouse Team, who recently fought in Japan against the #10 Shooto contender, faces Dan Severn’s protege, Brett Al-Azzawi, of the Dark Alley Fight Team in an exciting match which promises to feature more bombs than the Gulf War!

And in the Lightweight division, perhaps the most anticipated fight of the night, Lightweight Champion Henry Matamoros of the Pedro Sauer Team and the Duke Roufus Gym takes on last year’s "Master of Submission," Rolando Higuerros, training out of the Chicago Fitness Center and the All-American Academy. This is a match you DON’T want to miss!

The exciting undercard will feature 3 four-man tournaments. In the Lightweight Division (140 – 160 lbs.), Miguel Torres, Justin Hines, Nick Mitchell, and Masae Fatoke will battle for Braulio Corral’s MMAI Lightweight Title.

In the heavily stacked Middleweight Division (161 – 180 lbs), Joe Paun and James O’Connor face off in a heated rematch on one side of the bracket, while Herman Reyes and Jake Ambrose fight to determine who will take on the winner!

And in the Heavyweight division (181 – 205 lbs) Stephan Bonna, Jay Massey, Chris Albandia, and Ivan Bambic mix it up to determine who’s the best man!

Several non-title exhibition bouts are also scheduled. In addition this, Blind Man’s Bluff performs a chilling A Capella rendition of the U.S. National Anthem in honor of the victims of the World Trade Center attack, and MuscleMag International fitness model, Julie Ann graces the ring, along with our other beautiful Iron Maidens, as our newest Card-Girl!
