Back in the winner’s circle! Brandon “The Assassin Baby” Moreno defeated New Zealand’s Kai Kara-France and claimed the Interim Flyweight Championship at UFC 277 in Dallas, Texas. In Saturday night’s highly anticipated co-headline fight, the 28-year-old from Tijuana, Mexico, stopped his opponent by TKO in Round 3 and earned the UFC’s $50,000 Fight of the Night Bonus for his performance.
Monster Energy’s Moreno (20-6-2) came to Dallas looking for redemption after losing the UFC Flyweight Division title to Brazil’s Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 270 in January 2022. With the interim championship on the line, a victory on Saturday would bring Moreno closer to reclaiming the 125-pound division belt.
