From SuperBrawl promoter T. Jay Thompson:


Super Brawl to Adopt Nevada State Weight Classes

Extreme Sports Productions, producers of the Super Brawl series of events, have been pioneers in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Super Brawl began in 1996 with three weight classes (under 165lbs, 165-200lbs and over 200lbs) and limited rules. Since then they have continually adapted to their surrounding environment. The event, which gave NHB debuts to names such as Vitor Belfort, Frank Shamrock, Ray Cooper, Ronald Jhun and many others, is making some changes once again. Super Brawl will now have 5 separate weight classes with new champions crowned in each division. Weight classes will be 155lbs and under, 155.1-170lbs, 170.1-185lbs, 185.1-205lbs and over 205lbs. T.Jay Thompson said "We are excited about the new weight classes. We think this is another small step in developing unified standards for all MMA events world-wide and we are happy to do our part."
