Rob Font, Cody Garbrandt

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 27 event was headlined by a bantamweight matchup between perennial division contenders Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt.

Font (19-4 MMA) had entered tonight’s main event on a three-fight win streak, his latest being a first round TKO victory over Marlon Moraes this past December. That win was preceded by unanimous decision victories over Ricky Simon and Sergio Pettis.

Meanwhile, Cody Garbrandt (12-4 MMA) entered UFC Vegas 27 in hopes of building off the momentum from his stunning knockout of Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250. That win had snapped a three-fight losing skid for the former bantamweight champion, as ‘No Love’ had previously suffered knockout losses to Pedro Munhoz and TJ Dillashaw (x2).

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 27 main event proved to be a one side contest. After a back and forth opening round, Rob Font was able to shift the tide in his favor in round two. The ‘New England Cartel’ member peppered ‘No Love’ with jabs and right hands from rounds two through five on route to a unanimous decision victory.
