Rob Font’s tenacity was on display in the main event of UFC on ESPN 35, but ultimately he couldn’t find his way to victory against Marlon Vera.
After riding a four-fight winning streak just five months ago, Font (19-6 MMA, 9-5 UFC) is now stuck on back-to-back losses after dropping a unanimous decision to Vera (19-7-1 MMA, 13-6 UFC) in the bantamweight contenders matchup at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Font’s inability to avoid being rattled by a big hit has proven problematic in his last two fights against Vera and Jose Aldo. He must now figure out his best path forward to get back on track.
