Brandon Moreno vs. Kai Kara-France Prediction

UFC 277 Moreno-Kara-France prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.

Winner: Brandon Moreno (71%)
Method of Victory: Decision (75%)

Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo have given us three straight terrific fights, but that creates a kind of circular loop when trying to get a feel for just how good Moreno is at this point. He’s improved since earlier in his UFC career, for sure, but how good you judge him as right now depends a lot on how good you judge Figueiredo to be, and since Figgy hasn’t fought anyone else since November 2022, you run into the same problem in reverse.

Even if you don’t think Moreno has improved as much as people think, however, there’s the fact that he already holds a head-to-head win over Kara-France from 2019. Kara-France is still young and making improvements of his own, but I don’t see him closing the gap that existed three years ago here.

Take Brandon Moreno by decision.
