DALLAS – There is a chance that Brandon Moreno will win a UFC title on Saturday night.
In the absence of Deiveson Figueiredo, Moreno (19-6-2 MMA, 7-3-2 UFC) takes on Kai Kara-France (24-9 MMA, 7-2 UFC). Moreno won their rematch in 2019 by unanimous decision. The oddsmakers had Moreno as a 2-1 favorite in their UFC 277 matchup.
Moreno and Kara-France sparred before their bout during UFC 277’s pre-fight press conference on Thursday in Dallas. They squared off in the days leading up to Friday’s weigh-ins and Saturday’s major event.
