UFC veteran Frank Camacho (22-9) is set to take on Brok Weaver (15-5) this Saturday at UFC on ESPN+ 35, and ‘The Crank’ couldn’t be more excited.
“I look forward to every fight… it’s the best job in the world,” Camacho told me. “Brok is a tough ‘mofo’ and I can’t wait to share the cage with him.”
Frank Camacho’s toughness can never be questioned and though he was once thought of as a brawler, he’s learned to take a more tactical approach.
“Working with Team Oyama (Irvine, California) and coach Colin (Oyama) has helped me have a more calculated chaos style,” Camacho said.
He’s currently training in California, but Camacho’s native land is approximately 19 hours across the Pacific Ocean in Guam. He and Trevin Jones are the only two UFC fighters representing Guam right now.
“Trevin and I are the only fighters coming from the area,” he acknowledged. “There are lots of up and comers too like Kyle Aguon and Roque Martinez. I am a very proud local boy of the Marianas and excited to perform in the UFC and show the world where I come from.”
Guam isn’t the only thing Camacho is proud to represent every time he fights. His wife and two sons are huge driving forces as he continues his MMA career.
“They are a huge driving force,” he replied. “I get to provide for them through MMA. As you can see I’m a huge family man… I want to show my two boys that if you focus and work hard you can do anything.”
If he gets passed Weaver this weekend, Camacho plans to keep moving forward.
“I plan to stay focused and continue to climb the ranks,” he asserted.
Make sure to tune into the prelims this Saturday on ESPN+ at 6:00pm (ET) to catch Frank Camacho face Brok Weaver.
