UFC Fight Night Preview: Font vs Vera

Font (19-5) is widely regarded as perhaps the best pure fighter in the division who is also known for his durability and toughness. The 34-year-old Massachusetts native began his tenure in the UFC with a 5-3 record, but rose through the ranks on the back of a four-fight win streak against higher-level competitors. He was believed to be next in line for a title shot before coming up short against former champion Jose Aldo in a UFC Fight Night main event last December.

Vera (18-7-1), 29, is an eight-year UFC veteran who is known for his strong fights and consistent pace to accompany world-class techniques across multiple disciplines. At UFC 268 last November, he earned a Performance of the Night bonus for knocking out former champion Frankie Edgar with a front kick. But Vera is perhaps best known for his ominous first-round knockout of undefeated and polarizing prospect Sean O’Malley at UFC 252 in August 2020.

In his last 10 outings, Vera’s only losses have come against Aldo and rising prospect Song Yadong, both by decisions, and he has earned performance bonuses in four of his last six fights. See who to back here.

UFC Fight Night Predictions

We’ll share one of Gombas’ UFC Fight Night predictions here: He goes with Krzysztof Jotko (-165) to get the best of Gerald Meerschaert (+145) in a battle of middleweight veterans that will kick off the main card.

Meerschaert (34-14) is a six-year veteran and grappling specialist who has faced some of the biggest names in the division. The 34-year-old Wisconsin native tends to have trouble with world-class strikers and has been stopped four times in his UFC career. But he has won three fights in a row and is coming off a third-round submission to Dustin Stoltzfus in December.

Jotko (23-5) is a complete fighter who has won four of his last five, but he tends to find himself in close fights, as two of those wins have come by split decision. The 32-year-old Polish boxer’s only loss in that span came to emerging contender Sean Strickland last May.

“I think Jotko should be able to keep this up and win easily. Even on the ground, Meerschaert is willing to give up position to look for a submission,” Gombas told SportsLine. “Jotko is a competent fighter and will be difficult to control or submit. I think he should be a heavy favorite.”
