Brandon Moreno is acutely aware of Kai Kara-France has complex since their first meeting, on the other hand the one-time UFC flyweight champion plans to be 2-0 against him when they meet for the second time at UFC 277.
“In spite of everything. I have a lot of recognize for Cody Garbrandt and Askar Askarov, on the other hand they made a huge mistake, not respecting Kai Kara-France,” Moreno urged Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour. “He’s dangerous, man. He’s very dangerous and I need to be careful with him. Obviously, in a just right manner. I need to recognize him. I suppose him in 2019 and since that battle, he seems upper. Without a doubt, he seems upper. And he seems [more] confident. When he’s going to the battle, he seems like [he has] a better expression, in a position to transport with the opponent. So yeah, I think a very powerful weapon he’s complex is his self trust, so I need to be careful. Then again saying that, I’m in a position. I’m in a position to battle against Kai Kara-France over again and beat him over again.”
Moreno and Kara-France prior to now fought at UFC 245 in 2019, with Moreno winning a unanimous decision. That victory started an impressive run for Moreno who won the flyweight title previous than then dropping it in a trilogy bout with Deiveson Figueiredo earlier this twelve months.

“After the rest battle against Figueiredo I tried to do something different,” Moreno said. Forward of, one of the crucial a very powerful keys to my success was that I went to a lot of different gyms… I went to Albuquerque, I went to Denver, to Arizona, to California, a lot of different places to learn. I’m always looking for to get new knowledge. In the future I ended doing it on account of I felt very comfortable. I was operating very onerous, the whole thing was perfect, winning fights, getting the title, on the other hand I felt that once this ultimate battle I ended evolving, and I don’t like that feeling. So I determined to move.”
Right through the remaining couple of years, Krause has turn out to be one of the crucial a very powerful very best coaches in MMA, with a large number of massive names turning to him to lend a hand advance their video video games, and Moreno is acutely aware of he needs something an an identical. Since dropping to Moreno in 2019, Kara-France has put together an impressive run, going 4-1, and turning in dominant performances against Garbrandt and Askarov. His win over Askarov cemented Kara-France as a absolute best contender inside the flyweight division, and specifically caught the eye of Moreno, who fought Askarov to a draw in 2019.
“In spite of everything [I was impressed], on account of he was ready to give protection to the takedowns, keep the distance, and start to put pressure on Askar Askarov,” Moreno said. “That’s a terrific sport plan. I loved that. I know Askar Askarov gets moderately bit frustrated when he [doesn’t] to get the rhythm of the battle and the timing of the takedowns. So he started to frustrate Askar Askarov and put the fingers on him. That was a terrific, glorious matchup. So I’ve been looking at with James [Krause] a lot of fights of Kai, and I will see what kind of holes I will take pleasure in for our next battle.”
