He shared his thoughts about those early-round losses against Jaynes and Beniel.

While Frank Camacho also briefed John on the 24-hour run-walk challenge, which he had taken for Guam's homeless with Roman Dela Cruz and others. Camacho was of the view, "I just wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to walk, trek, and run all across freaking Guam, the long way". He also said, " That walk and my daily routine in Guam helped me a lot to keep myself in shape. All that stuff helped me so much in pushing myself both physically and mentally. He further revealed the legends and concepts behind that long-lasting 50 mile walk.

They further advanced their conversion, and coming right on Frank Camacho's re- scheduled matchup again Matt Frevola. Answering one of the questions, Camacho said, "Nothing has actually changed since the last suspended fight with Frevola. I'm just working on my style. Improving my best areas and working on my weaknesses. I'm so much excited to fight against an orthodox guy. Whether I show up or not, there's no way I'm going to coast. As Frevola is going to bring the fight out of me, similarly I’ll do the same and will bring the fight out of him." Moreover, Camacho told some general aspects of his training sessions and his training partners at the Oyama Camp.

"I think this fight is a must-win for me as I'm on a two-fight losing streak. One more thing about my excitement regarding this fight is the live roaring crowd. I'll just go there and "Crank" the things. I think roaring chants and backing of the crowd make these fights real fights. The crowd assists me to feel the vibration and it'll surely help me in that fight also. I'm really fantasizing about those hard three rounds with Frevola in the ring. I think this "Fantasization" is due to the short fights in the past two fights and I just want to get in there to enjoy and embrace.

I'm just embracing myself for a hard three rounds. I'm feeling the energy", Frank Camacho told John Hyon Ko.

Frank Camacho on his Instagram has already posted a smashing remark on his upcoming fight. He said on April 18, "He's (Frevola) a grinder and he doesn't quit. We are both the type of fighters that you have to put out to win these fights. It's going to be like an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object."

Most prominently, the Crank also got "Fight of the Night" honors in his first three UFC bouts. So, it's going to be a "hot knife through butter" bout!
