At UFC Fight Night in Columbus, Kai Kara France continues to make headlines after defeating Askar Askarov in the main card event.

Kai Kara-France, currently the No. 9 flyweight, won his third straight fight while Askarov just received his first black spot in an otherwise flawless career.

Askarov’s most talked about fighting style showed up almost immediately, as he immediately brought down Kara-France while attempting to establish lateral control. He then takes back control of his competitors while attempting to scout for ways to implement a choke. Somehow Kar-France survives the first round.

The tables turned in Round 2 as Kara-France immediately resorted to takedown defenses and quick punches. Despite being hit again, Kara-France landed some extremely heavy punches at Askarov while pinning him against the fence.

Round 3 was definitely the decider, Kai continued to throw hands at his opponents relentlessly while some looked like they were just being thrown around wildly. Desperately trying to stop the fight, Askarov tries to recapture his opponents. This caused him to be shaken off like dust and lose his advantage. Kara-France then defends against attacks while pulverizing his opponent with a series of punches.

It looked like the Kara-France strategy was paved when the judges handed him the win. The exciting unanimity (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) shows Kai’s comeback compared to the first round.

Kara-France, who has now won three fights in a row and four of his last five, has earned the opportunity to fight for the UFC Flyweight Title.

In the post-fight conference, Kai has called Kara-France to fight the winner of the upcoming flyweight title fight between the current champions Deiveson Figuierdo and Brandon Moreno. It is speculated that said fight will take place in July. Given his recent winning and fighting streak, it will be extremely difficult for the UFC not to give Kai Kara-France a shot at the flyweight title.
