With two victories from his two UFC fights so far, the 26-year old Aucklander has been forced out of action with a wrist injury suffered in February this year in his win over Raulian Paiva.

However, now fit and firing on all cylinders once again, Kara-France will face off against American Mark De La Rosa at the end of August.

De La Rosa, 24, will drop down a weight division to flyweight for the fight against the Kiwi, having competed as a bantamweight in his last two fights.

France is currently ranked 11th in the UFC's flyweight division, while De La Rosa sits at 15th.
