Rob Font vs Cody Garbrandt full fight video preview for UFC Vegas 27 main event

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 headliner TONIGHT (Sat., May 22, 2021) at APEX in Las Vegas.

Check out their main event preview embedded above.

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.
