Frank Camacho fought Neil Magny to get into the TUF 16 house and lost a split decision. Since then, Frank has gone on to become a top welterweight¬†in the Southeast Asia region. When he isn’t fighting, Frank Camacho is also an MMA referee. He got one of the best worst seats in the house, when a fighter went on auto-pilot.

Fighter A kicked Fighter B in the face, while he was a downed opponent. As Camacho separated the two, Fighter B regained consciousness and continued where he left off. However, he continue on Frank.

Usually when a fighter is hurt and goes on auto-pilot, they shoot in for a takedown. Fighter B got to his feet and began throwing punches. Frank took the shots like a champ. He ate some and slipped some. In a very professional and almost fatherly way, he was able to help Fighter B get his faculties back in order.
