Mixed Martial Arts promoter Michael MacNeill orchestrated a well-organized tornado of mma fights last December at the Fox in Salinas. It went well. Really well. So he's firing up the first of an annual fight card called SuperBrawl, loaded down with 26 fighters in 13 bouts, including returning local brawler Eric Prado and Nikko Jackson in the main rubber match, brothers Marco and Justin Orozco, and Jason Griffin (brother of UFC vet Tyson Griffin). MacNeill. PIzza Factory serves up grub, El Callejon Bar and Grill pours drinks, and vendors sling t-shirts and gear. Go to Big Joe's BBQ, Fighters Corner of Kugtar in Salinas, Main Street Kickboxing in Hollister to score tickets to the controlled chaos. [WR]
