UFC on ESPN 31 features a high-stakes main event in the bantamweight division.
Former featherweight champion Jose Aldo will meet surging contender Rob Font at the UFC Apex in a fight with potential bantamweight title implications.
Font enters the contest riding a four-fight win streak which includes unanimous decision wins over current Bellator champ Sergio Pettis and former UFC champion Cody Garbrandt. Aldo enters on the heels of back-to-back unanimous decisions over Marlon Vera and Pedro Munhoz.
Does the winner of this fight earn a title shot or will they have more work to do such as facing former champion T.J. Dillashaw when he returns from injury? Is this a true No. 1 contender fight or are the circumstances different depending on who wins?
Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Matthew Wells, “Gorgeous” George Garcia and Brian “Goze” Garcia break down the matchup’s stakes along with host John Morgan.
