UFC Fight Night – Jose Aldo vs Rob Font Prediction: Hands, odds, start time, live stream
When former two-time champion Jose Aldo made the decision from featherweight to bantamweight, it felt like a desperate step in the final stages of a legendary career. However, Aldo has found new life at 135 pounds, and he will be looking to pull his winning streak to three on Saturday when he faces Rob Font in the main event of UFC Fight Night. .
Aldo actually lost his first two trips to the Octagon as a bantamweight, beating a slightly controversial split decision against Marlon Moraes but was still awarded a spot in the vacant title. then in his next match. Aldo was stopped by Petr Yan in the fifth round of that title bout but surprised many by being competitive before Yan took over the fight.
Since those losses, Aldo has racked up consecutive wins, beating Marlon Vera and Pedro Muhoz in solid performances.
While Vera and Munhoz are 135-pound heavyweights, beating Font will be a much bigger task for Aldo.
Although Font has been a member of the UFC team since 2014, his current four-fight streak makes him a potential title challenger. After a 5-3 start to his Octagon career, Font has now secured wins over Sergio Pettis, Ricky Simon, Marlon Moraes and former champion Cody Garbrandt.
Victory over Aldo would give Font consecutive wins over the former UFC champions and secure his place in the title. However, Font knows well the complicated title picture, with bantamain champion Aljamain Sterling sidelined through injury and interim champion Petr Yan, all but securing a rematch with Sterling, which means he can wait for his chance for a while.
“The impatience [Sterling] still have to go back and fight Petr,” Font recently told CBS Sports. “If he’s still out, I can jump in there and fight Petr. If Aljamain is healthy and active, I think they fight and that puts me and TJ out of there. I’m in there. an odd position, where even an ending or big win, I’m still waiting.”

Rob Font and Jose Aldo: Font is a talented striker, which means he will meet Aldo on his feet, just as Aldo would have liked. Font has a solid combo while Aldo can be a counter-attack master, picking the right moment to punish his opponent’s aggression.
