“Three back-to-back, three main events, especially against two former champions (in Aldo and Cody Garbrandt) – I think they trust me,” Font told MMA Junkie at Wednesday’s UFC on ESPN 53 media day. “I think they know I’m going to put on an exciting fight. I think they know I’m going to make weight, I’m going to show up and I’m going to handle business.”

Combined, Font (19-5) and Vera (18-7-1) have double-digit performance bonuses.
