Warriors Quest 2001:”the New Beginning”

Warriors Quest 2001:
"The New Beginning"

Neal Blaisdell Arena – May 29, 2001
By Chris Onzuka – Chris@Onzuka.com

With only two weeks left before Warriors Quest 2001, promoter Brennan Kamaka informed me that ticket sales are going well. This event is a step up from Kamaka’s earlier shows. The earlier events, called Hawaiian Combat, primarily consisted of amateur matches, with a professional main event and were held in small venues. This time the show is evenly balanced with professionals and amateurs in the spacious, Blaisdell arena. Kamaka is excited about the match ups, which look to have a theme of the best of Hawaii versus the best of the West Coast. This will be the first time that many of the fighters, who having been making waves on the West Coast, get to test their skills in Hawaii. The field is filled with fighters who have participated in premier events like King of the Cage, IFC, Shooto, Gladiator’s Challenge and, of course, Future Brawl. When asked if Kamaka is trying to compete with Future Brawl, he responded, "No, it’s not like that. I just want to give Hawaii fighters a chance to gain more experience and get the recognition that they deserve." You can be sure that FCF will be there to cover all the action.
