The matchup was first reported by Combate.
Kara-France and Bontorin are both coming off of losses. At UFC 253 this past September, Kara-France lost by second-round guillotine choke submission to Brandon Royval, while Bontorin suffered his first UFC loss to Ray Borg via decision in a 128-pound catchweight bout (Borg missed the originally agreed upon flyweight limit by two pounds) last February.
Bontorin also holds a win over Paiva, and he was victorious in his UFC debut in February 2019 when he beat Magomed Bibulatov by split decision. He was signed in 2018 following a successful appearance on the Brazilian edition of Dana White’s Contender Series.
