Bracken is one of the three main promoters of MMA events in the state. Ever hear of the passing curiosity that was “Backflips and Beatdowns,” the event that saw motorcycles jumping off ramps, flying over the heads of fighters as they competed inside the cage below? That was Bracken’s show. He caught some flack for it, but he’s quick to point out that the motorcycles only jumped over one active fight in progress, with the rest of the jumps taking place between fights. And anyway, he says, all the risk in those jumps comes with the landing, which took place well beyond the cage.
