UFC Vegas 27 poster drops for ‘Font vs Garbrandt’ on May 22

New, 6 comments

Former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will look to win his second straight for the first time in over four years when he throws hands with No. 3-ranked contender Rob Font in the UFC Vegas 27 main event on May 22 at APEX in Las Vegas.

Now they have an official poster.

Garbrandt (12-3) was mired in a three-fight losing streak but returned to form with a knockout win over Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250 in June 2020. Unfortunately for “No Love,” his momentum was halted by a nasty bout with COVID-19.

Font (18-4) has quietly assembled a three-fight win streak dating back to summer 2018. His last appearance ended with a technical knockout victory over former bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes at UFC Vegas 17.

UFC Vegas 27 will also feature the strawweight battle between Carla Esparza and Yan Xiaonan. Elsewhere on the card, heavyweight hurter Justin Tafa goes to war with Jared Vanderaa.
