Frank Camacho is 22-8 in professional MMA (2-4 in UFC) and is looking to make a name in the lightweight division. Camacho is a dangerous striker who poses a threat on the ground. He is coming off of a loss to Beneil Dariush. He has won fight of the night awards 3 times, which is a record tied with Yoshihiro Akiyama and Justin Gaethje to start a UFC career off with.
Lando Vannata is a fighter who Camacho is interested in and has verbally agreed to fight with. Vannata is 10-4-2 (2-4-2 in UFC) and is coming off of a decision loss to Marc Diakiese. Lando is a well balanced fighter who could pose a threat to anyone standing across from him. 9 our of 10 of his victories have ended with a finish (4 (T)KO’s & 5 submissions). This would be a great fight no matter where it goes. Both are brown belts in BJJ & have finishing power as I’ve stated before. They both have agreed soooo 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏼♂️🤷🏼♂️ .
Luis Pena would be another interesting fight for Camacho. Pena, who will have a post about him dropped later today & will be on with us live later this week, is 7-2 (3-2 in UFC). He is coming off of a controversial decision loss to Matt Frevola. Luis is a technician when it comes to MMA & is a up and comer in the division. His strikes are so technical and sound. His ground game is even better than his striking which is crazy. This would be a great test for both fighters. Both are great in the stand up and can/will make you tap on the ground. Both fighters are looking to become closer to being ranked and are coming off of loses so this would be a great match up in all aspects.
Khama Worthy is is 15-6 as a pro and 1-0 in the UFC. He is on a 3 fight W streak over Joey Munoz, Adam Ward & Devonte Smith (Smith was Worthy’s UFC debut). He has crazy power in his strikes and can leave you out cold anywhere at anytime. He also has solid ground game. I think a fight with Camacho would stay standing up but Frank might take it to the ground also. Worthy needs to continue make a name for himself and Frank would be a good way of him doing that, and vise versa with Frank. .
Who would you like the crank to fight next? @frankthecrank @violentbobross @thedeathstar_1 @groovylando
