From SuperBrawl promoter T Jay Thompson:

Two Fights Added!

170lbs 3×5 minute rounds
Tiki Ghosen (Team Oyama 5-3) v Ronald "The Machine Gun" Jhun (808 ff 18-10-2)

Ghosen is a proven UFC veteran who trains with some of the best in the business. His style is aggressive. His stand up is strong and his ground is solid. Jhun will likely start slow and try to put the pressure on Ghosen later in the fight. The winner of this fight will likely fight for the Super Brawl title in November.

Heavyweight 3×3 minute rounds
Travis "The Iron Man" Fulton (Iowa, 127-32-8) v Kauai Kupihea (808 fight factory 14-11)

Yes, you read correctly. Fulton has over 125 MMA wins, including, victories over Super Brawl Champion, Cabbage and Kawika Pa’aluhi. He has more than earned his "Iron Man" nickname. Kupihea is back training in Hawaii and looking to make a name for himself in the Super Brawl ring. He is a big man with KO power and good submission and wrestling skills. He will need to utilize all of them to beat Fulton.

From the event’s promoter:

RITC 53 – Results
Brett Shafer named Fighter of the Night

It was a wild night at Celebrity Theatre. Brett Shafer upset undefeated Roger Mejia (9-1) to earn Fighter of the Night (FOTN) honors. Other candidates for FOTN were Justin Nauling, Greg Ball, RJ Gamez, Cory Timmerman and Homer Moore. Other items of interest included "no shows" by Dallas Campbell and Rylan Sandoval, Matt Ver Halen receiving permission for both his Opthamologist and the Commission fight doctor and then not being allowed by the AZ Commission to fight Nike Knight until Matt undergoes additional testing, Robert Maldonado coming in 6 pounds over the mandatory limit and the Lightweight Championship bout did not take place and then in the Heavyweight Championship Bout, Andy Montana complained of grease and after several attempts to restart the fight, the Commission ruled the match "no contest". By far, the best technique of the night was displayed by Joseph Riggs who caught a half cup of beer thrown into the ring and then proceeded to chug it prior to completing his post fight interview. RITC 54 (Oct 25) will be our biggest show ever, when Dan "The Beast" Severn makes his Arizona debut against Arizona standout Homer "The Rock" Moore.
