Former PXC fighter, Dustin “The Diamond” Kimura, wins his first UFC fight against Chris Camus at UFC 156 – Aldo vs. Edgar and stays unbeaten in all of his 10 fights.
The submission specialist from Hawaii displayed an incredible ground game against the crafty striker in Chico Camus, who in the early rounds dominated the stand up game against Kimura. Camus stunned Kimura in the first round with a powerful straight right that sends the Hawaiian to the canvass. But Kimura’s ground game has been the story of the fight as every time the fights goes to the ground, he always put Camus in a dangerous spot using his smooth and dangerous jiu jitsu.
In the second round, Kimura showcased his exceptional guard, trapping Camus’ arms and constantly attacking off his back. Kimura was seconds away from submitting Camus via armbar, but the clock expires and saved Camus from Kimura’s submission hold.
The third round was almost the same compared to the first two when the Duke Roufus standout stayed busy and light on his feet. On the 3:35 mark of the third round, Camus shoots for the take down but it was easily stuffed by the 22-year-old Kimura and got the full mount position against Camus. It was the beginning of the end for Camus when he gave up his back to the slick submission artist from Hawaii, who then perfectly sets up a rear-naked-choke that made Camus tap at the 3:10 mark of the third round.
There’s no doubt that Kimura is a very talented kid, and at only 22 years old, he really has a very bright future ahead of him in the biggest MMA promotion in the world.
