UFC Fight Night is back and we're ready to roll with some actionable info! The Main Event features a pair of dynamic flyweights. Amir Albazi will put his 16-1 record on the line against Kai Kara-France (24-10) on June 3, 2023, in Las Vegas.
Here are 3 best bets for Kara-France vs Albazi right here. We have wagers on the Main Event, the Main Card, and a bonus underdog. Best of luck, folks!
Kai Kara-France was a hot name in the flyweight division for a while and even earned himself a title shot against Brandon Moreno last July. He was finished by KO/TKO late in the 3rd round and Moreno was able to retain his title.
Since then, France has been inactive. His opponent, Amir Albazi, fought last December where he picked up his 5th career KO/TKO victory. This brought Amir to 4-0 in the UFC and 16-1 in his overall career.
Two of his 4 victories have come via submission while the other was a unanimous decision. Amir is sharp in all facets of the fight game and should be able to use his superior grappling to keep France from using his strong striking abilities.
Pineda has had 2 no contests in his last 5 fights. The other 3 ended prior to a decision. He KO/TKO’d Herbert Burns back in August of 2020 and then was on the other end of the same finish when he faced Cub Swanson that December.
However, he is coming off a nice submission victory over Tucker Lutz. Here is facing a strong opponent in Alex Caceres, who is 4-1 in his last 5 fights. His latest victory came over Julian Erosa who he knocked out in just over 3 minutes.
We believe Caceres is being overvalued here and Pineda will have the advantage in the grappling/wrestling game. He will be smart to avoid things staying on their feet where Carceres has a 4.5in reach advantage.
36-year-old Tim Elliott heads into this matchup with a 3-2 record in his last 5 fights. Matheus Nicolau and Brandon Royval handed him his 2 Ls.
His last fight was in March of last year where he picked up a unanimous decision victory over Tagir Ulsnbekov. Elliot loves to get takedowns but in both of his recent losses, he combined to go just 5/21 on takedown attempts.
Altamirano is a striker and will be quick to turn away any Elliot takedown attempts. If he can be successful with that, his superior striking should be enough for him to steal this one.
