Tonight’s the night: Epic Fighting 26 returns to the Four Points By Sheraton on Aero Drive for their 26th installment of the Epic Fighting Series which showcases some of the most gifted MMA fighters on their way to eventually competing in the professional ranks.

Leading up to that first bell, Epic Fighting has a special treat for their audience, a performance by the highly acclaimed “Melapelus” with singer Jovvan Meza, guitarist Larry Quintero, Joshua Meza on bass and Esteban Gallegos on drums. Melapelus’ addicted sounds feature a fusion of English/Spanish reggae cumbias and classic rock, a cross between Pink Floyd and Steel Pulse.The catchy lyrics of: “You make me feel so down” and “No quires mas,” and “the Mastermind,” will have everyone’s hips, shoulders and heads gyrating.lllll 640 reggae band

Then, stepping up to the plate to sing the National Anthem, they have Draeh Jirnae, the talented singer that blew everyone’s mind on American Idol. She’s so good people have already started drawing the comparisons with the greats Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill and Roberta Flack. Her voice and delivery is truly a gift from God.
