UFC Fight Night: Sandhagen vs Font

News Content

What's up Nashville? UFC is bringing violence to your town this weekend.

We’ve got a fun card lined up this week with some competitive matchups and we cannot wait for these fights to play out, so let’s dive right in!

Cory Sandhagen vs Rob Font

When undefeated Umar Nurmagomedov dropped off to injury, New England cartel’s own Rob Font stepped up the challenge against former Interim title challenger Cory Sandhagen.

Cory Sandhagen has been touted by many as a future champion given his growth against a tough strength of schedule in the UFC.

The Sandman has gone toe to toe with world champions like Aljamain Sterling, Frankie Edgar, and T.J. Dillashaw.

Cory is a technical striker who has rounded his game by adding wrestling credentials and knockout power to his already dangerous arsenal.

He is currently riding a two-fight win streak against top 10 contenders and with another top 10 win this weekend it will be tough to deny him a shot at Undisputed gold.

His counterpart this weekend is here on short notice to punch his ticket in the title fight hat.

Rob Font has been a top name in the UFC since 2014 and has fought some elite competition like Jose Aldo, Marlon Moraes, and Cody Garbrandt.

The rank 7 contender is one of the best jabbers in the UFC who is an expert at breaking his opponents down through pressure and volume.

We think this fight will be a great display of striking technique and a lot of volume which will make up for a memorable bout.

Best Bets

Our first bet this week comes on a fun Welterweight bout between Jeremiah Wells and Carlston Harris.

This is a great fight between two contenders making a case for being ranked.

We think Wells will hold the power advantage between them and with winning momentum on his side, we think we will get his hand raised this weekend.

Next up is our co-main event between ranked Strawweight’s Jessica Andrade and Tatiana Suarez.

Suarez has been regarded as one of the best prospects in the UFC and she is back from a long lay-off to pick up where she left off from.

She has already proven herself by defeating champions like Carla Esparza and Alexa Grasso.

Andrade is currently on the decline, and this is a nightmare matchup for her as Suarez can submit her or dominate her across 3 rounds.

Our final pick this weekend comes on our main event between Cory Sandhagen and Rob Font.

We think Sandhagen is simply the better fighter here who can utilize his reach advantage, implement his wrestling, and dominate Rob Font.

Given that Font has never been finished by strikes and this is a catchweight bout, we'll take The Sandman to win via decision at some nice odds.
