Dustin Barca vs. Isaac Hopps

Red gloves and white trunks for the 2-0 Barca, blue gloves and blue trunks for the 4-3 Hopps. Barca is the elder fighter at 36, Hopps is just 26. Hopps fights out of Waimanalo, Hawaii. Barca fights out of Kilauea, Hawaii. Our referee is Kevin Yoshida.

Round 1: Barca lands the first leg kicks and Hopps returns the favor. Barca lands a counter left hook when Barca rushes in. Barca keeps his right hand high and dangles his left out, though it’s a knee he lands for the best strike early in this fight. Barca continues to hunt for a left hook and throws out a front kick. Hopps with a 1-2 as Barca moves into range. Barca throws a right head kick that’s partially checked.

2:20 gone thus far. Barca is forcing Hopps to work off his back foot and throw leg kicks. Hard body kick from Barca. Right hand from Hopps followed by a stiff jab. Hopps with a right uppercut. Low kick by Barca. Hopps takes a groin kick straight up the middle on a right kick and Yoshida calls time. One minute left when the fight resumes and Barca’s nose has become as red as Rudolph from the uptick in striking by Hopps. Hopps lands a big left hand and Barca is momentarily stunned. Heavy right hand and leg kick for Hopps before the bell. Close round. McCarthy sees it 10-9 Barca. Hopps almost stole it back late.

Round 2: A frenetic pace of fisticuffs opens the round. Barca lands a body kick. Both men trade leg kicks. Hopps looks more and more like a boxer as the fight goes on, and he keeps working hands to the body to soften Barca up. Left hook lands for Hopps, Barca grazes him with a left high kick in return. Hopps lands a combo and Barca misses with a knee, but the second one connects.

Half of round two (and potentially the fight) is in the books. Hopps comes forward with a left to the jaw. Barca tries to respond in kind. Hopps circles and lands the outside low kick, then Barca returns with a combo. Hoops with body and head work. Barca tries and fails to get a muay thai clinch. The speed of Hopps seems to be a real problem for Barca, and worse still he’s slowing down. Barca shoots late and Hopps blocks it until the last second. 10-9 Hopps.

Round 3: Barca tags Hopps with a left 8 seconds into the third. He lands it again at 41 seconds. Hopps works leg kicks inside and outside to the left leg repeatedly. Barca knocks Hopps off balance with a hard leg kick. Barca tires of the leg shots and pushes Hopps into the fence with heavy hands and then gets a takedown at 2:08. Hopps eats a right knee when he gets up and is taken back down again at 2:57. Hopps pushes Barca up out of half into the full guard and tries to wall walk to his feet. He’s back up at 3:53, almost gets taken down again, but switches and lands on top in half trying to throw hammerfists. Barca pushes him off, stands up, takes him down at 4:30 with authority. That should seal it. Hopps opens Barca up with a late elbow. 10-9 Barca.

Final result: The judges score it 29-28 Barca, 29-28 Hopps, 30-27 Barca by split decision.


Kai Kamaka vs. Shojin Miki

Red trunks and red gloves for Kamaka, 4-2, fighting out of Ewa Beach, Hawaii. Blue gloves and black trunks for Miki, 4-3, fighting out of Honolulu, Hawaii. Our referee is Chris West.

Round 1: Kamaka quickly rushes forward to control the cage, throws a right hook and drops levels for a takedown. Miki tries to trap his head in the process for a guillotine choke with no luck. This turns into a stalemate that drags on as neither man improves their position. Mr. West seems to be in no hurry to break it up.

Kamaka finally pops his head free at 2:44 and he’s in the closed guard. He throws lefts and rights to the body as he looks to posture up for elbows. Some get through at 3:35 and then he backs up to drop down with heavy rights, having to avoid upkicks in the process. He passes to half, unloads with lefts, then both men stand up at 4:13. Kamaka takes him down right to full mount and takes the back with short time left. 10-9 Kamaka.

Round 2: Kamaka shoots hard for a takedown 5 seconds in, it’s momentarily stuffed, he finally gets it then has to avoid a kimura attempt from Miki. Kamaka finally settles in on top in half guard at 42 seconds. He’s working body shots and shoulder strikes on top as he looks for an opportunity to progress forward. West tells him to improve or get stood up.

Both men trade kicks and Kamaka hits another takedown at 2:53. Miki is trying to get a kimura again. Kamaka breaks free and bashes him with a left elbow to the jaw. Miki tries one more time to get the kimura but Kamaka takes the back and jacks him up with rights to the head. 10-9 Kamaka.

Round 3: Kamaka presses Miki into the fence and takes him down 25 seconds into the round. Mauro Ranallo dubs this “takedown, rinse, repeat.” He’s not wrong. It certainly worked for Michael Chandler in the main event last night. Miki sweeps Kamaka and is looking for the kimura but Kamaka escapes — however this lets Miki take top in guard.

Miki has just over three minutes to turn the fight around. Kamaka is using his legs and arms to flatten Miki into him chest to chest. Kamaka tries to escape, Miki looks to take his back, it’s to no avail as Kamaka is able to stand back up. Miki tries to elbow him in the head as Kamaka looks for a single leg takedown. Miki is briefly on top on the failed attempt, then a stalemate leads West to reset them with 22 seconds left. Miki comes forward swinging but can’t land a big blow. 10-9 Miki.

Final result: All three judges score it 29-28 for Kai Kamaka.
