Because Zoro has spent all of Wano until the raid wandering and growing accustomed to the land and its people. He's experienced first hand how bad Kaido and Orochi laid waste to the country, from innocents being cut down by maniacs that make up the regime, starving children and elderly from the...
Did Zoro use the Wado Ichimonji to take out Apoo? Also, Zoro's anger from seeing a comrade get hurt. "But Zoro has no reason to fight Kaido." Remember that Zoro befriended Kiku alongside Luffy in the beginning phases of the arc.
