Cody Garbrandt is ready to make his case for the bantamweight title. ‘No Love’ will take on No.3 ranked Rob Font at UFC Vegas 27 on Saturday.
Coming into the fight, Cody has had his fair share of struggles. Previously, Cody was going to fight flyweight champion, Deveison Figueredo after knocking out Ra[hael Assuncao. Unfortunately, multiple health issues like COVID, torn bicep, and kidney infection kept Cody away from the Octagon for a long time.
However, Garbrandt is once again healthy, and with the guidance of Mark Henry, ready to make another run. “Coach Mark Henry’s codes are on my head all day, all week, all fight camp. My coaches too, they’re great, we mesh so great together”. Naturally, Cody feels indebted and grateful for Mark Henry’s guidance in helping ‘No Love’ become a better version of himself.
Previously, Cody’s proposed fight with Figueredo was not rescheduled and went to Brandon Moreno instead. However, Cody is confident that he can beat Font and once again earn a title shot at flyweight. Following his recovery from COVID and injury, Cody has been relentless in his training.
Moreover, Garbrandt, 29, has already been the king of the hill in the sport, when he won the UFC championship in 2016. Unfortunately, he’s also been down in the dumps, after losses via KO/TKO three consecutive times from 2017 to 2020.

Will Cody Garbrandt beat Rob Font?
Rob Font (18-4) is on a three-fight win streak, most recently a second-round TKO of Marlon Moraes in December. He is No. 3 in the men’s bantamweight rankings. Additionally, Font is also capable of eating shots, something that is a weakness of Cody. Moreover, Rob has also shown a very calm and composed approach to fights as opposed to Cody’s recent outings.
On the other hand, Cody ‘No Love’ possesses lightning fast striking and reflexes, as seen in his fight with Assuncao. Additionally, he recognizes his weakness of getting overly emotional in some fights, which have ultimately led to losses. As such, many fans are backing Garbrandt, provided he can remain composed throughout the fight.
Since Cody wants to fight for the flyweight title next, it will be important for him to prove his worth and rest his case in this fight. Moreover, he needs to start putting a run together in the bantamweight division as well if he wishes to be a double champ.
