The Octagon returns to Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 27 event, a twelve-bout fight card headlined by bantamweights Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt.

Font (18-4 MMA) will enter 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 (12-3 MMA) will enter UFC Vegas 27 in hopes of building off the momentum from his stunning knockout of Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250. That win snapped a three-fight losing skid for the former bantamweight champion, as ‘No Love’ had suffered knockout losses to Pedro Munhoz and TJ Dillashaw (x2).

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 27 event is co-headlined by a key women’s strawweight matchup featuring former title holder Carla Esparza taking on streaking division contender Yan Xiaonan.

Carla-Esparza

Esparza (17-6 MMA) will enter tonight’s contest sporting a four-fight winning streak, her latest being a split-decision victory over Marina Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, Yan Xiaonan (13-1 MMA) is currently riding an eleven-fight winning streak, which includes five-straight wins under the UFC banner. The Chinese standout is coming off a unanimous decision victory over former title challenger Claudia Gadelha in her most recent effort.
