Rob Font

Against Yanez, Rob Font will face a step down in the rankings after his last two outings vs. Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera and Jose Aldo. Although he dropped decision losses in his last two fights, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Font performed to his best, setting multiple striking records and looking phenomenal for the majority of the time. It was the power of Aldo and Vera that made the difference, as they consistently secured rounds with late knockdowns and flurries. Sometimes styles make fights, and even though Font gave it his best, Aldo and Vera proved too much.


Adrian Yanez

This young contender is on one of the hottest streaks in the UFC. He started his current run with a pair of knockouts over Victor Rodriguez and Gustavo Lopez and is now 5-0 with four finishes. His boxing style and elusive footwork make him difficult to deal with on the feet, and he always has a solid Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu game to rely on.

Information worthy of note:

Font has been knocked down five times in his last two fights. He has taken significant damage.

Adrian Yanez suffered a noticeable ear injury in his last few fights.
