“It’s not crazy” – Daniel Cormier says Rob Font could fight Dominick Cruz after UFC Vegas 27 win


Following Rob Font’s recent victory over Cody Garbrandt at UFC Vegas 27, Daniel Cormier claimed that a fight between Font and Dominick Cruz was not beyond the realm of possibility.

Rob Font fighting another former champion would be great for his resume. However, Cormier believes that a possible fight between the duo would do more harm than good to Cruz.

DC believes Rob Font will continue to put pressure on Cruz, forcing Cruz to step back to deal with the threat of the blow and Font’s vicious punching power. A defeat for Cruz would be detrimental to his aspirations to return to contention for the title.

During the last edition of DC & Helwani, Cormier spoke about how a Rob Font vs Dom Cruz fight could potentially play out. The former UFC heavyweight champion also added that Cruz remains one of the only UFC veterans who can still keep up with the young emerging fighters. Cormier said:

“It’s not a crazy idea and for Dominick Cruz, who still has championship aspirations, this type of fight puts him right back into the conversation. Here’s the problem, how is Dominick going to figure out the puzzle that “Is Rob? Because Rob is going to keep pushing him. I think we’ve seen that very recently, we’ve got these champions from before and they’ve got these new young, exciting guys and they’re having a hard time with them.” If anyone can still compete at this level it’s Dominick Cruz but that’s a big request when he starts to rebuild his resume towards the championship. “

Cormier added that Font vs. Cruz would be a great fight and that that would put the No. 3 ranked Font in a situation where he could “outdo in a way”.

“A fun fight, a great fight. Another way to put Rob Font in a passing situation in a way, but this fight would benefit Rob Font more than Dominick Cruz.”

Rob Font’s win over Cody Garbrandt solidified his status as a serious title contender

At UFC Vegas 27, Rob Font competed in his first UFC main event and sidelined Cody Garbrandt in a clinical performance. Font’s victory over Garbrandt now establishes him definitively as a legitimate title contender.

But with Aljamain Sterling set to defend the title against Petr Yan, it remains to be seen what decision the UFC will make regarding Font.

With Cory Sandhagen also set to face returning TJ Dillashaw, either of these two could be ahead of Font in terms of shooting after Yan. Therefore, fighting Dominick Cruz could be a smart move for Font if he hopes to stay active and make his case for a title shot.
