FRANK “The Crank” Camacho will seek redemption in his fight against Brok “Chata Tuska” Weaver of Alabama at UFC Fight Night 177 on Sept. 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will be Camacho's last fight in his current UFC contract so he plans to give it his all especially after losing to Beneil Dariush in October and to Justin Jaynes in June. 

The island warrior believes that he is more than ready this time around.  But “I would be lying if I don't feel the pressure and my back is up against the wall,” Camacho told Variety. “Maybe it's something I need? I am in need of a win. If there is one thing, I know what the conditions are of fighting during Covid times. The empty hotel, empty arena, all the testing. I know what to expect going into this fight.”

He noted that Weaver has won many of his fights via decision, and has displayed a vast amount of stamina.

“The fact [that] he goes through all his rounds shows he has a gas tank, defense, and is tough as nails,” Camacho said. “I will bring my ‘A’ game to this fight and exploit his weaknesses.”

Camacho is also known to go toe-to-toe even in the most crucial of times and has a few new tricks up his sleeve. “I've been playing around with a lot of new things, always learning new techniques,” he said. “One thing that I'm really enjoying is playing with switching stances during training. I need this next fight. I will do my best and fight my heart out as always.”
