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.
