Super Brawl 15 Preview

South Florida’s longest running (MMA) promotion returns as Super Brawl Fight League presents Super Brawl 15 from The Vault nightclub in Hollywood, Fla. This night of fights will feature a long anticipated main event title bout for the SBFL Middleweight Championship between Jermayne Barnes (7-0) from Imperial Athletics in Boca Raton and Omar Beltran (6-1) from Evolution MMA in Miami.

The SBFL started 2013 with a bang at Super Brawl 14, which included Mike D’Angelo capturing his third title after locking in an armbar, forcing a second round tap-out on the 37-1 boxer Jose “The Colombian Necktie” Cortes, and becoming the new WFO Lightweight Champion. 

“We have the best fighters in South Florida” said Lonny Intorn, CEO of SBFL. “We have a stacked card; you can see why we are the premier amateur fight promotion in South Florida.”

Flying in to fight from the Lone Star State and bringing his striking expertise, its Steven Esquivel. Other fighters to watch include the tough as nails Nate Snyder from Tampa; the 6’6” giant from CSMMA Mike Pierce; and jiu-jitsu champion Jessica Branco, who'll face Samantha Wright in WMMA action.

Both Barnes and Beltran have a lot to gain going into this fight. The undefeated Barnes looks to capture his fourth championship before his April professional fight debut in Louisiana with Hilia Fights. The champion had this to say: “I’m happy. Omar is a tough guy, but, I see myself beating him. I have world-class coaches and a strong team that’s with me all the way.” Big thanks to Lonny Intorn for giving me this opportunity.” 

Beltran has his sights set on the gold strap and looks to take reign as king of the middleweights, training with various professional fighters such as Mike Trujillo and Jean Bellefleur at his home base of Evolution MMA, while honing his craft 

"I can’t wait to get out there and show everyone my new skills! It’s gonna be the fight of the year!” Barnes added.

In co-main event action you will see Daniel Campbell (5-1, American Top Team/Boynton Beach, FL versus Devin Dorsey (2-1, Train For Life MMA) for the SBFL Lightweight Title.
