Frank Camacho’s Singaporean Redemption
By James Lee
From being on the receiving end of the knockout of the year at UFC 228 in 2018 to saving his career in Stockholm earlier this year, Frank Camacho is back and is looking to prove he belongs in the sport’s toughest division.
This weekend, Camacho will feature on the main card against former ranked contender Beneil Dariush, in Singapore, with Ben Askren versus Demian Maia headlining.
As the main event is grappling-based, Camacho-Dariush should solely be striking-based. The fight will be back to where he made his UFC debut. Camacho lost to Li Jingliang in Singapore in June 2017, but is back for redemption in a career defining fight.
With the Iranian being a former top ten fighter, the fight could arguably be the biggest of his career if he can secure the victory.
One thing he always brings though is excitement, regardless of whether he is on the winning or losing side.
Only four of his twenty-nine professional fights have gone to a decision so whenever the Guam fighter performs, mixed martial arts fans should tune in.
The fight on Saturday should be no different. Two fighters who love to strike, with potential career repercussions likely if the bout doesn’t go their way.
Ultimately, Frank Camacho vs Beneil Dariush should contend for the fight of the night honour.
Two exciting fighters with a lot to prove and gain, looking to steal the show in Singapore.
