Cody Garbrandt is looking forward to putting on a display for the fans at this weekend’s UFC Vegas 27 card. The former UFC bantamweight champion will face up-and-coming star Rob Font in the Octagon, and he intends to break his opponent down.
In a recent interview, Garbrandt told The Schmo that he isn’t willing to let another man make a name for himself. Garbrandt said that there isn’t a fighter in the bantamweight division who can keep up with him.
“You know, that’s happened in the past. Never let a man make a name off me again. I definitely learned from that and what I was able to do in preparation for this fight, I don’t think any man in the UFC, in my division, will be prepared to try to keep that pace and whatever I throw at him,” Garbrandt said.
Garbrandt also mentioned that his battle against Font this weekend would be an exciting one.
He said, “Whatever I have to do in the third, fourth or fifth round, it’s gonna be an action-packed fight, and I’m willing to break him in there.”
Garbrandt hoping to get shot at title
Garbrandt’s target at UFC Vegas 27 will be to build on his last victory within the Octagon. ‘No Love’ knocked out Raphael Assuncao right at the buzzer at UFC 250 in 2020 to get back in the win column.
Garbrandt had previously lost to Pedro Munhoz before defeating the Brazilian.
Garbrandt will undoubtedly get one step closer to a potential title shot with a victory over Rob Font. On the other hand, Font is coming off a major victory over former title challenger Marlon Moraes.
Saturday’s fight will not be an easy test for ‘No Love,’ and it will be fascinating to see who wins.
