Rob Font To Replace Umar Nurmagomedov Against Cory Sandhagen

Umar Nurmagomedov was about to share the octagon with one of the top contenders of the bantamweight division, Cory Sandhagen.

However, the Dagestani fighter is out of the fight because of an injury. As such, Rob Font took the opportunity to step in on short notice against Cory on August 5th, 2023. 

And yet, Font was training hard for his fight which was supposed to be held on August 19th, 2023, against Song Yadong at UFC 292.

Yadong withdrew from this fight, as Front headlines the UFC Nashville event. Sandhagen is in good form with back-to-back wins over Marlon Vera and Song Yadong

Meanwhile, Font’s last bout was a first-round stoppage over Adrian Yanez. This was needed following two losses at the hands of Marlon Vera and Jose Aldo.
