Dario Sinagoga expects a ‘banger’ with Kyran Cameron, won’t go five rounds at BFL 71

Vancouver, B.C.’s own Dario Sinagoga (5-0) gets his shot at BFL gold on Thursday night when he takes on Kyran Cameron (5-1) for the interim BFL lightweight championship in the BFL 71 main event.

Sinagoga, 33, looks to not only become the interim lightweight champion, but the winner may also have an opportunity to compete on Dana White’s Contender Series later this year.

Sinagoga expects this BFL title fight to be a slugfest with two heavy-handed strikers.

“It’s going to be a banger. He (Cameron)is dangerous on the ground, but he isn’t a person that is looking to take somebody down. He’s the kind of person that if he gets somebody down he will look for submissions rather than try to stand up is what I’ve noticed anyway. That could be a curse or a blessing for him,” said Sinagoga in an interview with MMA Empire.

“If he manages to tie me up or get me in something then fair dues, but realistically when you hit the ground in MMA you don’t want to stay there. But if he’s happy to stay there he’s going to have to take some bombs.”

While Sinagoga knows big opportunities lay ahead with a win at BFL 71 he saidhe is happy to see the hard work starting to pay off.

“I never started fighting to go to the UFC. I started fighting because of my own willpower and my own dreams and my own quest for self-worth in the game,” said Sinagoga.

“It’s nice to get some recognition that I have been trying to get for a long time. It’s not even recognition from getting to go to UFC. I’m just happy with getting to live the life that I live. It’s been a long road; I’ve been living two lives for many years from being a bar manager and fighter. It’s been a hard road.”
