After a dominant win at UFC Vegas 27, what’s next for Rob Font?


Last Saturday at the main event of UFC Vegas 27, we saw a decisive game in the bantamweight division. Former champion Cody garbrandt (12-4) took the blaze Rob’s font (19-4).

For the first time in a few years, Rob Font fought twice in 12 months. Font has been one of the best prospects in the UFC bantamweight division, but for a while he struggled to stay active.

However, he had won three straight wins leading to UFC Vegas 27. One of those wins came over current Bellator bantamweight champion Sergio Pettis. Font looked better than ever on his last outing against former title challenger Marlon Moraes.

He won the first round knockout and that victory earned him a shot against the former UFC champion. However, Garbrandt was going to be a much steeper test. It was a big fight to see where Rob Font was in elite terms.

Well, Font looked sensational on Saturday night. The first round was very close with him being knocked out several times but after that round it was all Font. He dominated with his jab and lit Garbrandt on his way to a dominant decision victory at UFC Vegas 27.

What’s next after UFC Vegas 27?

While this is a massive win for Rob Font, he hasn’t moved at all in this week’s UFC rankings. Police are stuck in third place behind Cory sandhagen (14-2) and former champion Petr Yan.

Sandhagen set to face former UFC champion TJ Dillashaw (16-4) in July. This fight is seen as a likely title eliminator, with the winner battling the winner of the rematch between Yan and Aljamain Sterling.

Sterling and Yan are expected to pick things up again in the fall. With that, what’s next for Rob Font? Well, the UFC could put Sandhagen-winner Dillashaw against Font if the Sterling-Yan title fight takes a while to materialize.

This is certainly an option for Font. Another option would be to face the former featherweight champion Jose aldo (29-7) should Aldo win his next fight. Aldo faces Pedro Munhoz in August and if he wins this fight, a clash with Font could make a lot of sense.
