UFC Fight Night Font vs Vera: Results

The results are in for UFC Fight Night Font vs Vera. A big match in the Bantamweight division as the #8 ranked Marlon Vera fought #5 ranked Rob Font. Aljamain Sterling is the current champion in the Bantamweight division and nobody called him out after the match.

The night was co headlined by Arlovski vs Collier. Ultimately it was Arlovski who managed to increase his win streak to four in a row. The night was full of action with some great prelims. Check below for all the outcomes and the post fight press conference video courtesy of the UFC.
