Amidst reports of a fourth fight against Brandon Moreno, Deiveson Figueiredo has called out for a fight against Kai Kara France
Kai Kara–France’s impressive display at UFC Columbus has grabbed the attention of Deiveson Figueiredo. Although several reporters confirmed that the UFC is working on the first-ever quadrilogy series fight between the Brazilian and Brandon Moreno, Figueiredo looks to spoil the company’s plans.
City Kickboxing Academy’s Kai Kara France cemented his claim to the next title shot with a solid performance against the dangerous Askar Askarov. Israel Adesanya and his team were vocal after the Cody Garbrandt win that they will rally hard if Kai does not get a shot next. But as reports of a fourth clash between Moreno and Deiveison are being confirmed, Kai was supposedly going to wait out for his opportunity.
Following his win, Deiveison spoke to the Kiwi directly by saying, “Congratulations you dirty kiwi @kaikarafrance you just punched your ticket with the God of War. @theassassinbaby you just took the back seat. You are 0- 2 against @Pantojamma if you could beat him I’ll give you the next title shot,” wrote Deiveson Figueiredo.”
Kai Kara France responds to the champion’s callout
Although Kai would’ve been thrilled to see the champion’s itch to fight him. he responded to Deiveson’s callout with a stern warning.
He responded to his tweet by saying, “Be careful what you wish for! @danawhite let’s get the contract!”
A fresh match-up has always been in the best interest of the UFC, however in this case it looks like the company is keen on booking the historic fourth fight between Moreno and Figueiredo.
