The Kiwi Contingent has got off to a cracking start at UFC Auckland.
Kai Kara-France put on a clinical display in front of a raucous Auckland crowd at Spark Arena to pick up a unanimous decision win. He picked up scores of 30-27 on all three of the judges’ scorecards.
Kai was the more active fighter through the duration of the fight and while Nam often led, Kai landed the cleaner blows.
This one is close! ?

“Ever since I started MMA when I was 10 years old it was my dream to fight in the UFC and fight at Spark Arena,” Kai said in his post-fight interview.
The number 8 ranked Kai Kara-France bounces back after being defeated by Brandon Moreno late last year.
The win improves Kai’s record to 21-8 (1nc).
