Warriors of the Ring 4

MMA returned to Maui and once again provided a venue for up and comers to gain experience. A lot of people forget that good fighters are not born, they are made. That is why if we all want the sport of MMA to grow, we need to support events like Warriors of the Ring which provides a place for fighters to test their skills against opponents that are on the same level in a safe environment. Maui MMA fans are increasing in numbers and becoming educated with every event. I always enjoy events where new fighters compete because they come out to fight and do not look to "protect" their records like some journeymen fighters do. They come out to bang and that is exactly what they did. The event started out a couple of very young fighters starting up the crowd with some amateur boxing. These kids showed skills well beyond their years. In every match that followed, the fighters came out like bats out of hell and really went after each other. Some of the highlights were Tavini Sulusi’s KO of John Quinlan, Ryan Lee’s aggressive guard that he used to secure Eric Tolentino’s arm, and the crowd being jarred by Billianor’s dislocated elbow which occurred early in the match. The crowd was then treated to four warriors going at it in the last two matches. Sariento controlled his match with Ishimine, but Ishimine was still in the fight all the way to the end. And Moreno showed a lot of heart in his fight with Hinojesa. Hinojesa has a lot of talent, look for him and his teammate Ishimine to make some waves in the future. The next Warriors of the Ring will break in the New Year by having a show on January 25, 2004.
