UFC Vegas 27: Rob Font vs Cody Garbrandt Preview
Cody Garbrandt is one of the biggest names in the UFC Bantamweight division. He is also a former Bantamweight champion who defeated Dominick Cruz at UFC 207 to capture the throne. Garbrandt was undefeated until his fight against Cruz, but after that things turned completely upside down for him.
In his very next fight against T.J. Dillashaw which was Garbrandt’s first title defense, he lost the fight by a second-round TKO. This loss came as the first loss of his MMA career and after this, he faced two more consecutive losses, one more against Dillashaw and another one against Pedro Munhoz.
After all this, in his last fight against Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250, Cody Garbrandt got a huge chip on his shoulder. But the knockout specialist found his rhythm back and knocked out Assuncao in the second round of the fight.
Garbrandt is currently standing at number 4 in the UFC Bantamweight division and he will face the rising contender Rob Font at UFC Vegas 27.
Rob Font is also a UFC veteran who has been fighting in the promotion since 2014. He improved tremendously in recent time and Font is coming in this fight riding a winning streak of three fights with his latest win coming against Marlon Moraes on UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs Neal.

This is going to be Font’s first-ever headliner and with a victory in this fight against the former champion, he’ll be right at the spot for the title contender.
