Close Fight

It was a very close fight between Moreno and Kara-France over the course of two rounds. The third round was a highly entertaining one that will be remembered vividly. After knocking Moreno to the ground, Kara-France threw a slashing elbow that cut Moreno under the eye. The City Kickboxing athlete pummeled Moreno while teammates Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski cheered him on. 


Undoubtedly, Moreno stood up again. He also increased the pressure before launching a devastating liver kick. Moreno’s unwavering spirit was evident. Moreno continued to fire follow-up shots, forcing referee Herb Dean to intervene and stop the fight. The third round, which was expected to be Kara-France’s strongest, was called off at 4:34, thereby crowning Moreno as the Interim Champion.
