Prelims will begin at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2 / ESPN +, followed by the main card set at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view: Subscribe to the PPV on ESPN + now.Kara-France (21-8) is a whirling dervish, posting an impressive 5.27 significant strikes per minute, although he only gets 38.46% of those hits. He enters this fight with a one-inch reach advantage, but he’s five inches shorter than his opponent. The Kiwi rebounded from a unanimous decision loss to Brandon Moreno at UFC 245 with one decision won Tyson nam February 22. While Kara-France is 4-1 since joining the UFC, those five fights have ended up going the distance.

Royval (11-4) of Team FactoryX Muay Thai made his UFC debut last time against Tim Elliott, winning in a submission for the second round on May 30. It’s three straight wins that date back to a title defeat at LFA 53 Casey Kenney in November 2018.

Kara-France (-250) is a big favorite over Royval (+200), but we can expect he is going to have to work for it. As such, betting the New Zealander on the 2-way line is just too risky.

Instead, take KARA-FRANCE BY DECISION (-118) on the 5-track line instead. If you don’t like him, but agree that he’s going the distance, FIGHT TO GO THE DISTANCE (-167) under the bout finish section. MORE THAN 2.5 TURNS (-200) is a bit steep, but also a healthy bet, based on Kara-France’s five-game streak at UFC level.
