UFC 277: Brandon Moreno vs Kai Kara France Purse, Payouts, Salaries: How Much Will the Fighters Make?

It appeared that Deiveson Figueiredo and Moreno would engage in an unusual fourth battle to decide the UFC flyweight championship. Due to an injury to the reigning champion, the UFC switched to an unexpected interim title bout between Moreno and Kara-France. Men’s flyweight is dominated by Moreno and Figueiredo; Kara-France is ready to make things more difficult.

As a teammate of featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, Kara-France has a powerful fist that he ultimately displayed in victories against Askar Askarov, Cody Garbrandt, and Rogerio Bontorin. Additionally, Moreno won the unanimous decision when these two faced off for the first time in 2019 after putting up a great performance.

The victor of Saturday’s co-main event between Moreno and Kara-France will be declared the interim flyweight champion. In the first match, Moreno prevailed through unanimous decision at UFC 245 in December 2019.
