UFC free fight: Kai Kara France blasts ex-UFC champ Cody Garbrandt in first-round TKO

Kai Kara France gave Cody Garbrandt a cruel welcome to the UFC’s flyweight division.

Back in December 2021 at UFC 269, Garbrandt made his debut at 125 pounds, looking to reinvent his career following a 1-4 run at 135 pounds that saw him lose his UFC bantamweight title. Kara-France had no mercy for the former champion as he took it to him and put him away with ease in the very first round.

You can watch Kara-France impressive finish in the video above.

Kara-France returns this Saturday in the main event of UFC on ESPN 45. He takes on rising contender Amir Albazi in a five-round flyweight contest.
