Moreno (20-6-2 MMA) had entered the contest looking to rebound, this after surrendering the flyweight championship to Deiveson Figueiredo in his most previous effort at UFC 270. Prior to that setback, ‘The Assassin Baby’ had put together a seven-fight unbeaten going 5-0-2.

Meanwhile, Kai Kara-France (24-10 MMA) had entered UFC 277 boasting a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a decision win over Askar Askarov. The Kiwi had previously collided with Moreno at UFC 245 in December of 2019, dropping a unanimous decision.

Tonight’s UFC 277 co-main event proved to be a thrilling contest for as long as it lasted. Brandon Moreno seemingly got the better of Kai Kara-France in rounds one and two. However, the Kiwi appeared to be changing the tide in the early minutes of round three, this before the Mexican landed a nasty liver kick which sent Kai crashing to the canvas in pain. From there, Moreno unloaded ground and pound until the referee mercifully stepped in to stop the fight.
