Font (19-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) extended his winning streak in the bantamweight division to four fights with a one-sided unanimous decision win over former champion Garbrandt (12-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) in the headliner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Seems like every punch Rob Font lands clean is hurting Cody Garbrandt, but he’s having trouble stopping the takedowns. 10-9 Font. #UFCVegas27

Rob Font had some good moments in that round. But, dare I say it, is this a much smarter version of Cody Garbrandt?

Garbrandt ties his career high for takedowns landed in a UFC bout early in the 2nd round.

After taking down his first two UFC opponents, including 3 TDs against Henry Briones, Cody Garbrandt landed one total takedown in his next eight UFC bouts. Tonight: three after two rounds. #UFCVegas27

Garbrandt looks like he’s at war with himself out there. Dude fought one kind of fight for his whole career and it is tearing him up inside to try and make something else happen.

Where The fuck is the low kick

Rob Font reminds us each fight that he has one of the best jabs in MMA. Unreal. #UFCVegas27

He needs to channel Southwest Airlines Cody GET MAD!!!

— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) May 23, 2021

Cody needs a finish here. Can’t ever count out a former champion, especially of this division. Font on point and controlling the tempo #UFCVegas27

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) May 23, 2021

Rob Font basically came out of nowhere . This dude is a well rounded , highly skilled fighter! #UFCVegas27

— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) May 23, 2021

Master performance by Rob Font. Very technical, fun to watch. Cody Garbrandt proved a lot of people wrong that he can still take a shot, but he was a step behind Font all night. There’s a new bantamweight contender … no doubt about it.

— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) May 23, 2021

Well, we can at least put to rest that Cody’s chin is shot.
