SCHAUMBURG, IL May possibly 1, 2022
The UFC was happy to have an additional wonderful fight night card for the 100th fight night on ESPN. This posting will be only going about the major event and if you like written content like this, we will cover the overall card on a podcast episode that can be observed visually on YouTube and on most podcast streaming websites tomorrow morning.
Marlon “Chito” Vera
Never get me mistaken I unquestionably love Chito, guess on Chito, and on my scorecard had him winning the fight 49-46 with him only dropping round 1. What I did not like about the overall performance was how assured he was that he gained the struggle in direction of the stop of spherical 4 and into round 5. Chito experienced Font in a tough spot and Rob Font would have had to complete Chito to get the gain but the issue was the heart of Font for Vera. The Boston-indigenous is hardly ever was going to again down and while Vera looked fairly untouched at the conclude of the battle opposed to how Font looked, at any supplied minute, Font can complete this combat. Font had Chito versus the cage to start off every single round and with one shot it could have been lights out behind the jab of Rob. Regardless, Vera gets the victory and appear tomorrow should really enter the top five of the bantamweight rankings. Vera justifies a top 5 opponent and probably with a get, he could be correct at the top for a championship battle option for the 29 12 months aged. With TJ Dillashaw probably obtaining a title shot until Henry Cejudo jumps forward and receives the likelihood and presently having fought Jose Aldo, I like the likelihood of either a Vera vs. Sandhagen fight or Sandhagen vs. Yan. With a acquire more than the former bantamweight winner, Petr Yan, he probably receives the next title shot. With a get in excess of Sandhagen, I imagine the UFC would continue to need to have a single much more fight from Chito.
If Vegas is inquiring, I like the likelihood that Chito’s up coming battle will be competing from previous champion, Petr Yan likely by the end of summer time headlining an additional fight night card perhaps outside The united states.
I know I backed up Font a large amount in the Vera recap but he is not off the hook possibly. Rob missed fat for the 1st time in his profession coming into this fight which will elevate a great deal of inquiries and set a mark in his file in my mind. Right after the to start with 8 minutes in there, his cardio was in severe question as he went from large shots powering his jab to landing a good deal of volume with no serious damage by the previous three rounds. Font has now misplaced his previous two most important situations on Combat Evening playing cards to Chito and Jose Aldo previously this yr. No query he has one of the ideal chins in all of the UFC but he is having more mature and time might be working out for him to have a title shot. I anticipate him to be eradicated from the key event spotlight and get a three rounder in opposition to a youthful up-and-comer. The two names that occur to mind would be Song Yadong and Sean O’Malley. Sean is probably likely to struggle at International Battle Week in Vegas which would be way to shorter following the brutal injury he took around his very last two fights. i am not ruling out the chance that he requires a lengthy crack and is the next struggle soon after Sean probable fights a very low ranked fighter before with any luck , signing a large offer in the UFC possibly in December in Vegas. For Music Yadong, this would be a great following fight for the 24 yr previous as he could wait till early fourth quarter of 2022. A few rounds virtually appears like a requirement for Font immediately after not remaining equipped to maintain up around his last two fights.
With Sean owning a battle I am just ruling him out even while I am confident we will finally see that struggle down the line. I matter Song Yadong and Rob Font is the struggle to make and I would possibly even like to see it if the UFC has a PPV in Boston this fall.
