This undefeated Canadian prospect is fired up to get back in the cage at BFL 67.
Toronto, Ont.’s Kyran Cameron (5-0) is stepping into the cage challenging for the BFL welterweight title against one of Canada’s most well-known and respected veterans in Coquitlam, B.C.’s Dejan Kajic (12-7-2).
Both men are looking for an avenue to take them to that next level. Kajic, 36, is the savvy veteran, while Cameron, 28, is the youngster, but both are looking for the road to glory.
“This is the toughest test of my career,” Cameron told MMA Empire.
“The most experienced opponent I’ve faced to date. This is one that can put me further on the map and push me into success for the future. This fight is very important for me.”
A win over the current champion, and becoming champion himself, could mean a plethora of things for Cameron, including a look at Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS), he believes.
“I can’t look past this opponent, but I am looking to further my career,” Cameron said.
“Becoming a champion, being 6-0, that should deserve a call from the Contender Series or The Ultimate Fighter. The goal is to get to that level; I’ll worry about that after the fight, but that is where I’d like to be.”
Before the pandemic, Cameron was in a groove with three wins in less than a year to get his professional career underway.
Now, in 2021, Cameron is looking for that same groove as he approaches the summer months.
“It feels like I’m back in 2019,” Cameron said.
“The uncertainty is gone. It is back to stringing wins together; the year off is over. I needed a quick turn around like this, it feels normal again. The year off helped me in a lot of ways, but this is my way of life. Being in the cage is my life.”
Kajic has not competed since 2019 due to the pandemic-riddled 2020. Although a slight layoff, he has won four straight, all of which were by stoppage.
Cameron said he’s less worried about what his opponent has in store and more focused on his own peak performance.
“I can only worry about how I will perform,” Cameron stated.
“If I’m in my peak form, I can’t lose to him. If I’m at my best, I can’t lose. He is very good, but I just focus on myself because I am the better fighter.”
