UFC Fighter Rob Font (17-4)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

No. 11 ranked Rob Font stands out as one of the most exciting fighters in an absolutely stacked bantamweight division. Of his 17 wins, he has ten finishes – seven by knockout and four by submission.

After going 10-1 on the regional MMA scene, he earned his way to the UFC in 2014. Font made his bantamweight debut at UFC 175, where he knocked out George Roop two minutes into round one.

Following his incredible UFC debut, Font has gone 7-3 in the UFC, only losing to the division’s very best. He has three more fantastic finishes included in those seven wins. He knocked out Matt Schnell and Thomas Almeida and submitted Douglas Silva de Andrade.

Font is currently on a two-fight winning streak. He is coming off a fight of the night performance where he defeated Ricky Simon. Font suffered a torn meniscus and ACL injury at the end of the second round, but he fought through it.

After taking the majority of 2020 off as he recovered, Font returns to action against No. 3 ranked Marlon Moraes on Dec. 19, 2020, at UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs. Neal. A win over Moraes could potentially set him up for a No. 1 contender fight for the bantamweight title.

When asked what we should expect from his fight, Font said, “A second round knockout.”
