Font vs Yanez Prediction

Rob Font heads into UFC 287 in search of a bounce-back performance. He hasn't tasted victory since May 2021, losing back-to-back outings by unanimous decision to Jose Aldo and Marlon Vera. Now, he must face Adrian Yanez, who's won nine consecutive fights with seven of those victories coming by KO/TKO.

Even though Yanez is on fire, I like Font's chance of surviving this fight. While the two bantamweights throw out a similar number of strikes, Font absorbs fewer significant blows per minute (3.95) than Yanez (5.49). The former CES MMA Featherweight Champion has also never been knocked out before, proving that he can survive a knockout artist like Yanez.

It's going to be a long fight that'll likely go the distance, which is the type of brawl that suits Font. Back him to return to his winning ways with a strong effort.

Winner: Rob Font

Font vs Yanez Best Bet

If Font is going to win this fight, it'll likely be by points. After all, six of his last seven fights have gone the distance while three of his previous four victories have come by a decision. Furthermore, Yanez has yet to be finished, picking up his three career losses by points.

With FanDuel listing this fight to go the distance at -112 odds, I'm even more confident that Font will emerge victorious via points.

Bet: Rob Font by Points (+260)
