Kalib Starnes wins in Hawaii

Destiny:  Pier Fighter 1 went off in Hawaii on Saturday night.  It was not without a hitch however, as Starnes’ original opponent Kala Hose pulled out at the last minute due to contractual issues.

The Destiny promoters scrambled and were able to find an opponent for Starnes in Chris Cisneros.  Cisneros had trained to fight on the undercard so he was prepared.

Kalib Starnes defeats Chris Cisneros by submission (armbar) in Rd.2
Eddie Rincon defeats Kolo Koka by decision
Yancy Medeiros defeats Po’ai Suganuma by TKO in Rd.2
Kaleo Kwan defeats Zack Rapal by TKO in Rd.1

The return of Kalib Starnes – PRO MMA exclusive

by:  Jack Bratcher

The Ultimate Fighter season 3 and UFC veteran, Kalib Starnes will be making his return to the ring on November 15th when he faces Kala “Kolohe” Hose at Destiny MMA’s:  Pier Fighter 1 in Hawaii.

We last saw Kalib at UFC 83 where he fought Nate Quarry to a memorable three round decision.  Only, it was memorable for certain reasons most people would not consider beneficial.

I was very interested to see how Kalib had been dealing with life outside the UFC and all of the negative press.

It’s always easy for a person to keep focused on the positive things when life is sunshine and roses.

Kalib Starnes returns to action against Kala “Kolohe” Hose in Hawaii

by: Jack Bratcher

UFC veteran and TUF 3 cast member, Kalib Starnes will be stepping back into the MMA ring on November 15 where he will be fighting the Icon Middleweight Champion, Kala “Kolohe” Hose in Hawaii on the Destiny MMA organization’s main event.

Starnes’ last fight in the UFC was back in April of this year when he fought Nate Quarry at UFC 83 in one of the most “interesting” fights in MMA history. Starnes’ technique and gameplan frustrated Quarry to the point he started coming at Starnes with one arm outstretched and one hand covering his face in a mocking gesture. Quarry was able to pull off a unanimous decision despite the unorthodox styles shown by both fighters.

Starnes’ opponent on November 15th will be the pride of Hawaii, Kala Hose, whose most notable win was against Phil Baroni back in March in an Icon Sport Middleweight Title fight where he TKO’d the New York Badass early in the fifth round and won the vacant title. Hose’s most recent fight was in August where he defended his Icon belt against Rolando Dominique in a second round TKO victory.
