Rob Font vs Cody Garbrandt

In the co-main match, Chinese talent Yan Xiaonan will face veteran female boxer Carla Esparza. Like Font vs. Garbrandt, this will be a match to determine the ranking at the top of the women's Strawweight division. Other notable matches include Jack Hermansson vs. Edmen Shahbazyan, Ben Rothwell vs. Chris Barnett, Bill Algeo vs. Ricardo Ramos.

UFC Bantamweight title contender Rob Font is thrilled to have the opportunity to name his first event in seven years at the tournament. He will be facing former champion Cody Garbrandt in the main match of UFC Vegas 27 and he believes this will be quite a challenge for himself.

Although Font initially wanted to fight another former champion, TJ Dillashaw, he didn't mind facing Garbrandt. From Font's point of view, Cody brought as much danger to the game as Dillashaw, so Rob Font was pleased with the opponent sorted.
