Kiwi UFC star Kai Kara-France marries fiance in his own backyard

Headlines 07/10/2021

It seems as though lockdown can't stop love in the Kara France household, with Kiwi UFC star Kai Kara France announcing today the he has married his fiance in their own backyard.

Kai took to Instagram to announce the news, showing off some photos from the big day with wife Chardae and their son Cobi.

"Married my best friend in the backyard!" wrote Kai in the caption. 

It's nice to see some of our most elite athletes getting to spend time with their whānau during the era of covid, but we imagine it's not long before Kai jumps into training mode to prepare for his upcoming fight with Cody Garbrandt this December.

Garbrandt is the former UFC bantamweight division champion and presents one of the biggest step ups in competition for Kai, offering an elite level of striking that could prove to be a potential issue for the young Kiwi fighter.

However Kai continues to grow in both skill and confidence, so if there's anyone who can get the job done it's that tough as nails Māori boy from Aotearoa.
