Hawaiian Combat Amateur Show 2000

Hawaiian Combat Amateur Show 2000
Superstar Gym (Jesus Is Lord Gym),

Brennan Kamaka and company put on an excellent event and you would never have known that this was their first event that they ever held. The event ran like a well-oiled machine. It was held in Superstar Gym, which is the extensive gym that the Jesus Is Lord team trains. The crowd that gathered into the gym was treated to great fights and great food. The organizers brought and applied their collective experience from competing under a number of different organizations and applied every detail into this event. The fighters came out under their own theme music, received great trophies, and they provided the judges and press with a copy of the fight card, rules, and event poster in a presentational folder on a table full of pupu’s [Hawaiian term for finger foods or hors d’orveurs]. As my brother, Mike, and I leaned over to T. Jay Thompson [Super Brawl promoter], who was one of the judges, to elbow him in the ribs every time we took a bite of some of the great food, he would remind us "don’t get used to this," with a chuckle. Local standout Niko Vitale served as an excellent referee. The competitors were very well matched up and fought like veterans. After the almost signature reaction of all of Team Tiger rushing into the ring to congratulate their fighter Alex on his victory or a game David Santiago, Brennan and Kai Kamaka came into the ring and took control of the situation and stated that any type of unsportsman-like conduct would not be tolerated. It was obvious that the sole purpose of this event was to promote the sport and give athletes a venue to gain experience in a safe and fair manner. My stomach and I cannot wait for the next event. It is tentatively scheduled for March 3, 2001.

UCC Poster

January 27th
in Sherbrooke, Quebec


Canada readies itself for the third installment of Canada’s premier fight promotion, the Universal Combat Challenge (UCC). With now less than a month until the traditional "show time", the UCC and it’s Universal Warriors are already well prepared to rock the rowdy town of Shebrooke, Quebec and deliver fifteen (15) action packed full contact bouts. Fans will be witnesses to six (6) championship bouts, a four man Light Heavyweight tournament and many challenge fights with athletes ranging from 150 pounds to 290 pounds.

The main event if the evening will pit "Ontario’s Bad Boy" Jason St-Louis against the undisputed Canadian Middleweight Champion, David "The Crow" Loiseau. These young warriors appeared side to side on the UCC’s weekly MMA television show and expressed to millions of viewers why they will emerge victorious on the 27th. Judging by the rapid ticket sales for UCC 3: Battle for the BeltsTM, the public is very anxious to see who will make their prediction of guaranteed victory come true in the Ring of FuryTM.

In the second main event, Montreal’s own Charles Nestor will face the toughest challenge of his young career in Sean Pierson. This bout will once again pit one of Quebec’s toughest against one of Ontario’s most fierce fighters. The drama behind this bout has been building ever since UCC 2 where these two were supposed to meet in the ring. However the bout was postponed due to a medical issue. On January 27th, they will enter the ring with hopes of becoming the UCC World Lightweight champion.

UCC 3 will also feature a Canadian lightweight title fight between the experienced champion JF Bolduc and #1 contender Phil Hughes. Hughes is a prot
