  1. Mark Moreno 180lbs v Kaipo Kalama 185lbs
    Two young fighters looking to break into the Super Brawl business. Moreno has been knocking all his victims out while Kalama is more comfortable on the mat. A fight decided standing will go to Moreno, while a fight on the mat should favor Kalama. Pick ’em

  2. Ray "King Kong" 243lbs v Miles Tynanes 240lbs
    Everbody likes the big boys! "Kong" is young, raw, and hungry. He is one on Egan Inoue’s "new breed" of fighter. What he is lacking in polished skill he will more than make up for in aggression and heart. Tyananes is coming off a disappointing loss to Cabbage in Super Brawl 21. He has taken the necessary steps to take his game to the next level. If he wants a rematch he will first have to get by one of Cabbage’s training partner’s "Kong". Pick ’em

  3. Akira Kikuchi 167.5lbs v "Ice Cold" Kolo Koka 167.5lbs
    Grappling Unlimited’s young gun "Ice Cold" Kolo Koka does not get a break of any kind. After taking Shonie Carter the distance in SuperBrawl 25 and man-handling Canadian favorite Pain Peters in SuperBrawl 26, Koka will be tested yet again. This time by another star on his way up. Akira Kikuchi, hailing from the Land of the Rising Sun, is the latest prodigy to come out of the legendary K’z Factory gym (home of Rumina Sato). Kikuchi has been on a tear since his pro debut and is undefeated in his first 3 fights in Shooto, finishing his first 2 opponents by submission. Kikuchi 3-1 favorite

  4. Deshaun Johnson 167.5lbs v Jutaro Nakao 167.5lbs
    Johnson is coming off a hard earned victory in Super Brawl 25. He trains with Haru Shimanishi, so expect a wide variety of skills with an emphasis on striking. UFC veteran Nakao choked former UFC champion Pat Miletich unconscious in Super Brawl 11 with the most lethal triangle choke in the business. Johnson has barely gotten his feet wet in the industry while Nakao is a veteran that has been in with the best in the world. Johnson will need a "career" night to hang with Nakao Nakao 4-1 favorite

  5. Shonie Carter 170lbs v Ronald Jhun 170lbs
    This will be a beauty! The self-proclaimed "Player with a Passport", Carter (who you may remember stripped to his speedos in his last Super Brawl appearance), has a tremendous arsenal of weapons. He throws spinning punches and kicks from all angles, as well as possessing elite wrestling and submission knowledge. Jhun will test the waters at this lower weight. Look for him to stay relaxed and attempt to withstand an early onslaught from Carter. He tends to finish strong in the later rounds. He will need to, to beat "Mr. International". Carter 2-1 favorite

  6. Sean McCully 190lbs v Falaniko Vitale 190lbs
    McCully has fought all over the world. He is a skilled Thai boxer as well as staying active in the professional wrestling world in Japan. He matches up well with Vitale standing and will not be afraid to match skills on the ground. Perhaps the best athlete currently competing in Super Brawl, Vitale has been looking better and better with each outing. He is only one or two fights away from breaking into the UFC. These fighters aggressive styles will be sure to make this a "barn-burner"! Vitale 3-2 favorite

  7. Jason Lambert 245lbs v Cabbage 265lbs
    This will be an exciting fight whichever way you look at it! Lambert has a chin rivaling Cabbage’s. He never backs up and has a solid wrestling base. Cabbage will attempt to defend the take-down and dish out as much punishment as he can while standing. Lambert will have to win this fight on the ground by controlling position and doing damage with punches. If he cannot get Cabbage to the ground he will be in for a long night. Cabbage is coming off a loss in the UFC and is very hungry. This may be the edge he needs. Cabbage 2-1 favorite
