Rob Font reacts to ‘sh*tty situation’ in Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling title fight, pitches bantamweight ‘supercard’ in May

As the third-ranked bantamweight in the world, Rob Font was paying very close attention to the title fight between Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259.

Yan defended his title for the first time after stopping Jose Aldo in the fifth round at UFC 251 in July and was starting to separate himself from the challenger as the fight went on. “No Mercy” was on his way to winning the fourth round through the eyes of many watching before he landed an illegal knee to the head of Sterling with less than a minute left in the stanza.
