Moreno bagged his second UFC title with a vicious left body kick to the liver and some nasty ground and pound.

The proud Mexican’s kick shut down Kara-France’s body and left him unable to defend the ensuing follow-up strikes.

The beautiful switch kick made a sickening impact on the Kiwi’s liver that was picked up by the octagonside microphones.

Moreno’s performance impressed many, including former two-division champion McGregor.

The Irishman said in a Twitter voice note “That Mexican is a little animal of a thing, and so is the little New Zealander also.

“Two goers. Two proper goers from completely different parts of the world.

“Two different people but two of the same in their own way.

“It was great to watch that bout, a really great bout. And the little Mexican is some boy.

“You have to give it to him, walking into the arena with the chick on the arm. Numero uno. Campeón, campeón. (No. 1. Champion, champion.)

“A proper Mexican entrance and then a proper Mexican fight. Then the toughness, and he just put on a show.

“It was a great card. … Viva la Mexico, c*bron. Viva la Mexico. Let’s go, baby. Congrats to the Mexicans.”

Victory over Kara-France has set up a unification fight between Moreno and undisputed champion Deiveson Figueiredo.
