Kai Kara-France recently reminisced about his thrilling knockout win against Cody Garbrandt at UFC 269.

While appearing in an interview with Megan Anderson at ESPN MMA's UFC fight camp, the UFC flyweight contender discussed several topics ranging from his upcoming bout with Askar Askarov to the UFC working on a possible Figueiredo vs. Moreno 4.

At one point during the interview, Kara-France also discussed his latest fight against Cody Garbrandt. During the discussion, 'Don't Blink' was asked how he felt after defeating 'No Love' via a combination of hard-hitting punches which sent the former crashing into the mat.

Looking back at one of the biggest wins of his career, Kara-France said:

"It was very satisfying. All my life, you know, I have been an underdog or overlooked because of my height. Always been the smallest in my high-school. You know, there's a lot of fight in this dog. Then that's what I bring to the cage. I channel that, you know. If someone thinks I can't do it or, you know, underestimated me, that just fuels my fire and when Cody was talking about mindsets and saying that I have got a average mindset, they just lit a fire underneath me. On the fight night I was just channeling all of that."
