Two featherweights make their promotion debut to open the card for UFC 252 on Saturday night when Kai Kamaka takes on Tony Kelley live from Las Vegas and the UFC Apex center.
Kamaka is 7-2 as an MMA fighter, but only has one career finish, a submission in 2014. He’s won his last five fights, competing in King of The Cage, Bellator, and the Legacy Fighting Alliance. The 25-year-old got a unanimous decision victory over Michael Stack just 14 days ago, and will be on a very quick turnaround in Las Vegas, the “Ninth Island” of his native Hawai’i.
Kelley fights out of Shreveport, Louisiana, and is 5-1 as an MMA fighter with four stoppages, three by submission. Half of his fights have been in the Legacy Fighting Championship, and his last outing was a first-round guillotine choke victory over Andy Brossett in the American Kombat Association on May 17th. The 33-year-old at 5’9 has a two-inch height advantage on his opponent.
