Found this old fight card from a Super Brawl event I attended the year 2000. People new to MMA don’t understand at this time these events were illegal in majority of the States in the U.S. including California. Hawaii was one of the places that allowed sanctioned MMA fights to take place. Erik Paulson, Matt Huges and Rumina Sato were just a few of the fighters I saw compete before the general public even had a clue about what MMA was. Living in Hawaii at the time I was able to watch a lot of the Japanese Shoot fighters which eventually led me to seek out instruction in Catch Wrestling under the great Billy Robinson.
