Zane Kamaka defends crown tonight at Destiny in Hawaii

HAWAII (Sat, August 19, 2017)– Before Zane Kamaka defends his Destiny MMA title tonight in Hawaii, the well-rounded fighter sat down with FightBookMMA.

How did you find MMA in the first place?

When I was a kid, I was getting into a lot and my parents tried signing me up for football and baseball but I wasn’t feeling it. They enrolled me in boxing and after that I lost my first fight ever. It was a great challenge – I felt the adrenaline rush and fell in love with the sport after that. I was fifteen years old and I never stopped.

Where do you think your life would be without MMA?

Honestly, I have no idea. I tried the nine-to-five job and it bored me. I gotta give credit to the people who do it, but that straight road isn’t for me. The competition – everything – I love it, man. If it wasn’t for fighting I don’t know where I’d be, bro.

How excited are you to defend your title?

I’m still pretty excited, y’know? I’ve been doing this since I was a teen, so I don’t really think about it that much. My gameplan is pretty much the same for everyone I fight.

What does that title belt mean to you?

It means everything to me. That belt doesn’t make me a champion, but I’ve put in the hard work and I treat every fight like a championship fight. It doesn’t matter if there’s a title at stake, every fight is a championship fight to me.

When people look back on your career, what would you like them to think about your accomplishments? 

I want everybody to say that, “Zane Kamaka fought anybody, anywhere, at any time.”
