The UFC Bantamweight fighter, Rob Font secured a clinical victory against the former Bantamweight champion, Cody Garbrandt in the main event of UFC Vegas 27.

Garbrandt came into this after fighting from COVID for a really long time and Font outlasted him in every department of the fight. Most people believe Rob Font isn’t that big bantamweight frame-wise.

But Font thinks his size against Garbrandt played a major role in his victory against the former champ. In his interview with Low Kick MMA, Font says,

“Even when we clinched up and I grabbed him (Cody Garbrandt), I definitely could feel that he was the smaller guy, I definitely think he should go to ’25 (125lbs). I think his mind was thinking ’25 before this fight, you know.”

“And he was still talking about trying to get the belt at ’25 in the lead up to this fight. I think in his mind, he’s a 25er, I think he knows that. He should just probably pull the trigger and go down to ’25.” {H/T Bloody Elbow}

Garbrandt was booked to face the UFC Flyweight champion, Deiveson Figueiredo before his fight against Font but only because the title shot was on the line. Later he was ruled out of this fight due to COVID.

Although, Cody Garbrandt lost his fight against Font but he still sees a lot of positives coming from this fight and still claims that he is destined to become the world champion.

Following his loss to Font, Garbrandt says, “A lot of positives come from this, Brush it off. Get back with my coaches and teammates and we’re still striving to be the best, to be world champion.”

“Sometimes there’s some adversity that comes along in your dreams and makes you work harder and makes you realise what needs to be done and it makes it that much sweeter when you climb up the mountain.” {H/T Bloody Elbow}

“It wasn’t my night, but man I enjoy this. I’ll correct my mistakes and (‘I’m) just really thankful. … I fight my heart out for you guys.”

What are your thoughts on this should Cody drop down to Flyweight and see what are the chances for him there or should he stay at Bantamweight?
