Kai Kara France says he has been waiting all his life for this fight against Brandon Moreno. UFC just announced the fight card of UFC 277 which is going to take place on July 30th at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas. In the main event, Julianna Peña will defend his title against Amanda Nunes. The Moreno vs France title contender fight will be the co-main event of the night.
Moreno lost his title against Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 270. However, the fight was extremely close and he deserved the trilogy fight. But things changed and now the Mexican will have to earn the spot by defeating France. It’s the second time France and Moreno will take on each other inside the octagon.
The duo earlier fought at UFC 245 in 2019 in which Moreno won by unanimous decision. For Moreno it’s an opportunity to get one step closer to the title he lost, similarly, for France, it’s his chance to take the revenge and get the title shot against Figueiredo.
