UFC bantamweight Rob Font laid out his plan, which includes the fight against winner TJ Dillashaw against Cory Sandhagen and then the fight for the belt.
Font comes off the biggest UFC career victory to date, a five-round unanimous decision victory over former champion Cody Garbrandt at UFC Vegas 27. With four consecutive wins and a ranking among the top three at 135 pounds, Font knows he’s coming on one shot for the title in the UFC bantamweight division and is addressing TMZ Sports, he laid out his plan.
“I’m a fight behind, I really am. We have the champion (Aljamain Sterling) and he obviously has to do the rematch with Petr Yan. And then you have Cory Sandhagen vs. TJ Dillashaw, it’s got to happen. I feel like the winner of this fight that I’m fighting and then we finally fight for the belt. But yes, I am ready, I am in good health. I think the (Cody Garbrandt fight) showed that you got into five rounds with Cody Garbrandt, it’s going to be hard to finish me, hard to knock me out. I can do this all night and I’m barely tired, ”Font said.
Font is particularly excited about Sandhagen’s upcoming fight against Dillashaw and the prospect of fighting the winner of that title fight is something he longs for.
“Dude, it’s gonna be an amazing fight. They have similar styles. TJ obviously has more experience and probably has a bit more power. Cory Sandhagen is much longer, just as quick, just as quick and just as cunning. I think I pick Cory Sandhagen in there. Again, I wouldn’t mind matching these two guys. I think I hit harder than them. I really think I’m a little more specific than these two guys. No matter who wins the fight, I’ll be ready to challenge them for sure, ”Font said.
Of course, if Font was successful, he would ignore those other fights and then face former champion Yan, although he knows he will get his rematch with Sterling first.
“Dude, honestly, if I could skip all the nonsense and great for Petr Yan and that belt, that would be ideal, but I don’t see that happening,” Font said.
