UFC Fight Night: Kara-France vs. Albazi is staying in Las Vegas tonight (June 3rd), and will be headlined by a top-tier flyweight tilt between Kai Kara-France and Amir Albazi. The UFC’s #3 ranked 125-pounder in Kara-France is trying to get back into the win column following last year’s liver kick loss to Brandon Moreno in their vacant interim title fight. As for the UFC’s #7 ranked Albazi, he has won all-four of his UFC fights so far, while producing a finish in three of those appearances. Relevancy is quite high with this one!
As for this card’s co-main event, relevancy is virtually non-existent. However, the good news is that it features two OG’s of the sport in Alex Caceres and Daniel Pineda, who are both fresh off of fantastic finishes. Caceres is coming off of that epic head kick KO of Julian Erosa from this past December, and Pineda just scored a second round guillotine on Tucker Lutz back in March. Expect some savvy scrapping here!
There are a couple of other eternal fighters on this card, such as Jim Miller and Andrei Arlovski. No, they’re not fighting each other, you silly goose. Having won three of his last four, and at 39-years-of-age, Miller is set to mix it up with Mr. Bad Luck himself, Jared Gordon. As for the alleged 44-year-old heavyweight vampire, Arlovski will continue to skim the bottom of the division by taking on the 31-year-old Don’Tale Mayes.
Jim Miller vs. Jared Gordon has been cancelled following Gordon’s removal for undisclosed reasons. Longtime veteran in Miller will remain on the acrd, but his new opponent has yet to be named. Stay tuned for more updates as fight day approaches.
The entire event goes down at the most boring venue in the promotion’s rotation… the APEX Facility.
