Bontorin (ankle) will face Kai Kara-France in a flyweight matchup scheduled for March 6, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Bontorin withdrew from his most recent scheduled fight against Manel Kape in August due to an ankle injury but will be well past that issue by March. Both he and Kara-France will be looking to avoid a two-match losing streak in this one. Bontorin lost a unanimous decision against Ray Borg in February of 2020, while Kara-France was submitted in the second round by Brandon Royval in September.

Will miss fight due to ankle injury
BantamweightUFC
July 22, 2020
Bontorin will not be fighting Manel Kape at the UFC event on August 15 due to an ankle injury, Marcelo Barone of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
It's not clear at this point how long this ankle injury will keep Bontorin on the shelf. When he does get back in the Octagon, he will be making his first appearance since mid-February when he was defeated via unanimous decision by Ray Borg.
Slated for UFC 252

June 13, 2020
Bontorin is in line to face Manel Kape at UFC 252 on Aug. 15, Marcelo Barone of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
Bontorin took his first UFC loss in a fairly one-sided match versus Ray Borg at UFC Fight Night 167 in February, but that followed a pain of victories in his first two fights. Next up is another newcomer in the promotion in Manel Kape, who will be debuting in the octagon at UFC 252. The two prospects will likely be duking it out for a more favorable position moving forward in regards to card placement and positioning within the flyweight division.
Drops first UFC bout
BantamweightUFC
February 15, 2020
Bontorin lost to Ray Borg via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 25-30) at UFC Rio Rancho on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
While Borg was the fighter who came in heavy, it was Bontorin that seemed to be controlling the position in the clinch early -- that is, up until Borg reversed position and got the takedown. Despite being on his back, Bontorin registered some offense of his own while attempting to secure the arm of Borg. Bontorin threatened with the escape, but Borg landed a big right when he was about to break free and rushed in to secure another takedown. The second round was more of the same, with Borg getting a takedown early and registering over four minutes of top control. Wash, rinse and repeat in the third round, as Bontorin had little answer to Borg's grappling game. Bontorin is now 2-1 under the UFC banner.

ANALYSIS
After Bontorin's opponent, Ray Borg, missed his weight for the fourth time, it was determined that the 26-year-old will be fined 30 percent of his purse. Due to the missed weight, Bontorin could be at a slight disadvantage considering he weighed in at 126, while Borg weighed in at 128.
