As the dust settles from the recent explosive matchups in the UFC, fight fans are gearing up for another electrifying showdown. Bantamweight contenders Cory Sandhagen and Rob Font are set to headline UFC Fight Night in what promises to be a thrilling clash of striking prowess and determination. This pivotal main event is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, emanating from the iconic Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Both Sandhagen and Font have earned their stripes as two of the most fierce strikers in the bantamweight division, and this fight carries significant implications for the division’s title picture. The reigning champion, Aljamain Sterling, is poised to defend his belt against No. 2-ranked Sean O’Malley at UFC 292 later this month. The victor of the Sandhagen-Font battle could very well position themselves for a title shot against the winner of that highly anticipated matchup.

The No. 4-ranked Sandhagen (16-4) is riding the momentum of a split-decision victory over Marlon Vera in his most recent outing. The Colorado native’s striking acumen, rooted in kickboxing, has propelled him to success in the octagon. Sandhagen’s ability to unleash a torrent of strikes keeps opponents on the defensive, while his towering frame and strategic guard frustrate opponents attempting to close the distance.

Sandhagen’s journey to this moment has been marked by bouts against elite competition, with mixed results against top-five ranked opponents. However, his recent victory over Vera showcased his evolution and hinted at his readiness to stake a claim in the upper echelons of the division.

On the opposite side of the octagon, the No. 7-ranked Font (20-6) presents a formidable challenge for Sandhagen. Font’s reputation as a high-level boxer and relentless aggressor has earned him a well-deserved spot among the division’s top fighters. Despite enduring setbacks, Font’s determination was evident in his upset victory over rising prospect Adrian Yanez. Font’s boxing skill and relentless pace make him a threat that Sandhagen has to take seriously.

While both fighters have taken distinct roads to arrive at this moment, their clash promises to be a spectacle of contrasting styles. Sandhagen’s dynamic and creative striking approach is set to collide with Font’s no-nonsense, power-packed offense. Additionally, Font’s wrestling skills add an intriguing dimension to the matchup, potentially influencing the course of the fight.

Despite Font’s wrestling acumen, it remains to be seen whether he can effectively ground the agile Sandhagen. The Coloradan’s control of distance and standup prowess could prove to be the decisive factors in the bout. As the fight unfolds, fans can expect a closely contested battle that showcases the technical finesse of Sandhagen and the raw power of Font. In a fight that will be close for two rounds, I have Sandhagen separating himself from Font in the third as his striking will be too much and Sandhagen will win by TKO with a legit shot at the winner of Sterling-O’malley.
