Kara-France has kicked off his promotional tenure with victories in four of his first five appearances. Most recently, the 27-year-old City Kickboxing representative earned a unanimous decision against Tyson Nam at UFC Fight Night 168 on Feb. 23. Kara-France is 21-8 with one no contest since beginning his pro career in 2010.
An eight-time Legacy Fighting Alliance veteran, Royval made his Octagon debut at UFC on ESPN 9, where he submitted Tim Elliott 3:18 into the second round of their bout. The Factory X product owns an 11-4 professional mark, with 10 victories coming inside the distance.
