DESTINY: Unleashed


On Saturday, April 28th at 6 pm, Oahu fight fans will be ready for a full night of caged MMA action as fighters from Oahu, the Big Island, New Mexico and Las Vegas battle in the DESTINY cage.

Six title fights will highlight the event, with Toby “2quick” Misech looking for his first pro MMA title as he battles lightweight champion Edward Matsuura who is just returning from training in Thailand. These two fighters always bring the action, rarely ending their bouts via judges’ decision. Misech, coming off his first professional win against Steven “the Soul Samurai” Saito in Honolulu’s last ProElite event, appears hungrier than ever for more wins to add to his record.  If he continues on the warpath he’s been on, you can expect huge things from Misech.

In the semi-main event, Hawaii’s top bantamweight Russell Doane battles MMA veteran Josh Montoya of New Mexico.  Also on the card, undefeated Rachel Ostovich represents the 808 State against Kari Lichtenwalner of Las Vegas in the bantamweight women’s title match.  Both Doane and Ostovich are crowd favorites, always bringing the fireworks when they step into the cage.

Also, an action packed 8-man amateur featherweight tournament for Destiny’s vacant 145 lb belt will be up for grabs, along with 20 more bouts added to the card.  Destiny definitely does not disappoint, promising the crowd a night full of action packed fights.
