Kai Kamaka III Parts Ways With UFC After Four-Fight Stint

Featherweight Kai Kamaka III has parted ways with the UFC after just four appearances for the promotion. News of Kamaka III’s departure from the promotion was first reported by MMA Island on Wednesday.

Kamaka III exits the promotion with a record of one win, two losses and one draw.

His two most recent appearances in the cage have been marred with judging controversies.

Kamaka III fought to a majority draw in his last fight, facing Danny Chavez late last month. The dominant performance from Kamaka III was slightly slowed down during the fight, as he was handed a one-point deduction in the second round due to accidental fouls.

Despite the setback, 11 of 13 media scorecards for that fight still scored Kamaka III as the winner with a score of 29-27, per MMADecisions.com.

Kamaka III’s previous performance was a split decision loss to TJ Brown in May. For that fight, all 15 media scorecards picked Kamaka III as the winner, with five seeing all three rounds going to him.

Kamaka III’s fights in 2020 saw him get finished by Jonathan Pearce and get a “Fight of the Night” award with a win over Tony Kelley.

The 26-year-old entered the promotion last year after a series of wins in Bellator and LFA.
