News From The Hawaiian Front…
By Chris Onzuka – chris@onzuka.com

SupurBrawl’s 5th Anniversary
Blaisdell Arena, Honolulu, Hawaii
July 21, 2001

T. Jay Thompson has been busy recovering from his recent back injury and…putting together some spectacular matches for the event that will mark SuperBrazwl/FutureBrawl’s 5th Anniversary. It is scheduled for July 21st and Thompson let out a little taste of what is to come. He informed me that Vincius "Draculino" Magalhaes, a Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt is making his NHB debut against submission grappling phenom from Hawaii, Baret "The Baretcuda" Yoshida. Draculino is a Pan American BJJ Champion and has placed 3rd twice in the World BJJ Championships [Mundial] has been looking to enter NHB and previously requested to fight Yoshida. Yoshida, also a BJJ black belt, recently took 2nd place at the Combat Wrestling Championships in Japan, and came in 2nd [to Royler Gracie] in the 2001 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championships. A couple of weeks ago, Yoshida won the lightweight tournament in The Contenders in Japan. I can already hear the buzz starting from this match. Thompson promises to release more matches for his 5th Anniversary event shortly.


Warriors Quest 2: "Battle of the Champions"
Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
September 1, 2001

Brennan Kamaka has just inked two outstanding main events for Warriors Quest 2, which will be the first mixed martial arts event ever held in the newly-built Hawaii Convention Center. There is a hell of a lot of glass in that building and I hope it stands up to these two fights. Jesus Is Lord’s Ray Cooper, fresh off his arm-bar victory of Antonio McKee in the first Warriors Quest, looks to defend his new title for the first time and stop Sean Sherk’s total domination in the sport. Sherk is a giant packed into a small package, but if you ever saw him, he is bursting at the seams. This guy is a specimen. There hasn’t been this much buzz about a fighter since Matt Hughes and rightfully so, since Sherk comes out of the same camp. The other main event released is Niko Fitale, who destroyed Todd Medina on his way to the Warriors Quest Light-Heavyweight Championship, taking on another Miletich camp member in Joe Doerkson. Doerkson, like his teammate Sherk, has been on a roll, racking up 10 consecutive victories. We will see if Doerkson can stop Vitale. Kamaka has put together some great matches, even though he is a new to the "promoting game." More matches will be released as the event gets closer.

Lightweight Championship Match
Ray "Bradda" Cooper (Jesus Is Lord):
Warriors Quest Lightweight Champion
4x SuperBrawl Champion, 5th Ranked in Shooto
vs.
Sean Sherk (Team Extreme, 17-0)

Light-Heavyweight Championship Match

Rage in the Cage Hawaii Champion, KOTC debut Winner
vs.
Joe Doerkson (Team Extreme, 15-2)
