Kai Kamaka testing free agency after his UFC contract expiring. Smart move for the young Featherweight who had a tough go fighting for UFC. 1-2-1 UFC so far.
Fight of the Night against Tony Kelley, “Loss” against TJ Brown. Judges messed up the scoring on this fight many people think Kai Kamaka won, Kai Kamaka looked very good.
“Tomorrow we will be filing an appeal for the blatantly horrible decision against Kai Kamaka,” Kamaka’s manager Brian Butler wrote in a statement released to MMA Fighting. “I don’t believe I have seen one media outlet that gave that fight to TJ and from what I understand even TJ and his team say they didn’t win. There is little to no recourse on these judges not being able to do their jobs properly and for a fighter like Kai who moved his entire household from Hawaii to pursue this career, it’s simply not right.https://www.mmamania.com/2021/5/2/22416506/kai-kamakas-team-plans-to-appeal-split-decision-loss-to-tj-brown-ufc-vegas-25
Bad luck against Danny Chavez deducting a point because of a low blow in Round 2. Judges messed this one up too, Kai Kamaka won this fight as well. Congratulations to the GREAT judges.
Finish 10-3 with UFC right now if judges scored it right but anyway time for Kamaka to test free agency and see his real value.
Any MMA promotion can sign this talented Hawaiian Featherweight, Building up the featherweight division and become a promotional rising star.
If I was Brian Butler(Kai Kamaka manager) I’d have him sign somewhere besides UFC. Time to win a Featherweight title outside the UFC and make a high earning salary as well.
Attracting the UFC to sign him seeing the radical improvements in his GAME.
