Rob Font put up an absolutely scintillating performance against former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt to further cement his position in the UFC’s bantamweight division. Font’s comeback after the ACL injury suffered against Ricky Simon last year has been nothing less than spectacular.
Font returned against a seasoned striker and former champion Marlon Moraes and knocked him out in the very first round to announce his return to the Octagon early this year. However, his win over knockout artist Cody Garbrandt stands as one of the best performances in recent times as he completed dominated the former champion to pick up his fourth straight win inside the cage. With back-to-back wins over former champion, the future looks bright for Rob Font going forward in his UFC career.

With Cory Sandhagen vs TJ Dillashaw looking like a potential #1 contender’s fight, one cannot deny Fon’t contention looking at his last two wins. Additionally, with Petr Yan without a fight, and a possible rematch between Sterling and Yan looking unlikely, it remains to be seen what lies ahead for the bantamweight division.
Font could directly land a title opportunity, however, should Sterling decide to wait around Dillashaw vs Sandhagen, it’s safe to say either of those two fighters could land the title shot. In such a situation, it does look like Font could potentially face Petr Yan next.
Needless to say, Rob Font vs Petr Yan is an exciting match-up and one that will undoubtedly hand Rob Font the title opportunity to stake his claim in the UFC’s bantamweight division.
