DON’T BLINK. 2 of the baddest men in the world are going to be throwing down tonight in a huge bantamweight main event as #3 Rob Font (-120) will take on former world champion #4 Cody Garbrandt (Even) in what could be a number 1 contender’s fight.
It’s really hard not to love both guys. These are two of the most entertaining fighters on the roster. If Cody can stay composed much like he was in his last fight, then he will come out of this war on top. He’s got a big power edge and speed edge too and I think he’ll get the finish in the 2nd or 3rd.
Don’t be surprised to see my fellow Bostonian Rob Font get a W either. He’s very capable of pulling off the biggest win of his career. The odds here don’t lie. It’s about as even of a fight as you can get. Should be a GREAT one.
I couldn’t write about this card without mentioning the unbelievable Middleweight fight opening the card with #7 Jack Hermansson (-165) vs #10 Edmen Shahbazyan (+135). This is another tough one to call but I would throw some money on one of the top prospects in the sport in Edmen. They are doing him no favors feeding him against Hermansson after his first loss. Really excited for this matchup.
