Kalib Starnes wins in hawaii

Kalib Starnes (9-3-1) took the first step back to reinvigorating his career when he defeated Chris Cisneros (8-5) at the inaugural event for the Destiny MMA promotion on Nov. 15 in Honolulu, Hawaii. This was the Surrey native’s first bout since his decision loss to Nate Quarry at UFC 83 in April. As good as it was to win, Cisneros was a late replacement for the bigger-named Kala “Kolohe” Hose, who withdrew two days before the event over some type of contract disagreement.

Kalib Starnes lays a
beating on Chris Cisneros.Starnes said that he was traveling to the press conference a day before the weigh-ins when Hose’s manager called in an attempt to renegotiate the rounds from five to three minutes. Starnes said that he agreed, only to have Hose’s camp then ask the promoters for more money. However, when the money was sorted out it was revealed that Hose had a leg injury and couldn’t fight.

“Once all of his demands were met he still didn’t fight,” said Starnes. “No professional MMA fights are three-minute rounds, that’s ridiculous. But I agreed to three, three-minute rounds and he still didn’t fight, so what does that tell you there? He never mentioned any injury to anybody, and that to me sounds like a way to legally get out of a contract that he signed.

“If he was really injured that’s terrible,” Starnes continued. “But it was two days before the fight and he said the injury happened weeks before, and he never mentioned it to anybody until right when he was trying to renegotiate for more money and shorter rounds.”

Starnes was frustrated, as he prepared specifically for Hose and thought it would have been a good matchup.

“He [Hose] seemed like a good guy –- I’m sure it was just some kind of business dealings, and it sounded more like managers negotiating on his behalf trying to look out for his best interests,” said Starnes. “I know that maybe if he was looking for a fight in the UFC he might be a little worried about fighting me.”

Destiny promoter Jay Bolos said that Starnes accepted all of Hose’s requests.

“But in the end it seemed like we were willing to bend but they wouldn’t play,” Bolos told Sherdog.com.

Despite the change in opponent, Starnes said the trip was fruitful.

“Chris was a good fighter and tough and willing to take a fight like that on short notice with me, so I respect him a lot,” he said. “And he was a really good guy –- all those guys from Hilo were cool people and it was a nice trip.”

Back in British Columbia where he continues to train with Andy Suitela and Andrew Pedersen, Starnes said he is currently seeking new management.

Thanks for the news but I would personally be just fine never seeing Kalib fight again. Even before that pathetically ridiculous performance against Quarry I was never interested in watching him.
