Brandon Moreno vs. Kai Kara-France Breakdown


It’s been a wild ride recently for the Mexican-born flyweight. Moreno dropped the championship trilogy finale with Deiveson Figueiredo by unanimous decision back in January after submitting him via rear naked choke six months earlier. The Assassin Baby actually outstruck Figueiredo 105-86 in the third installment but was knocked down three times and lost the takedown battle 2-1. Ultimately, the judges decided Figueiredo did enough to get his hand raised and Moreno moved into the number-one contender position. 

Moreno enters Saturday’s fight averaging 3.54 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.31 strikes per minute. The 28-year-old is fairly active in the takedown department, averaging 1.84 takedowns per 15 minutes while landing at a 47% success rate. It’s worth noting that Moreno is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and his grappling game could give him the edge in getting named the interim champ in Dallas. 

KAI KARA-FRANCE (24-9-0, 1 NC) 

The New Zealander is coming off of an upset win over Askar Askarov back in March of this year. It was a unanimous decision victory for Kara-France, who outstruck Askarov 51-27 over three rounds. Askarov landed two takedowns and added two unsuccessful submission attempts. It was Kara-France’s third straight win with the two previous victories coming over Rogerio Bontorin and Cody Garbrandt more recently. 

The 29-year-old has shown his knockout power in recent bouts, with both the Bontorin and Garbrandt fights ending via KO/TKO. Kara-France comes into this interim championship contest averaging 4.84 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.51. He’s a blue belt in BJJ, leading to an impressive 84% takedown defense rate. Offensively, Kara-France isn’t too active in the takedown department. He’s averaging 0.43 successful takedowns per 15 minutes and landing at just a 21% success rate.
