Font showcased his great striking capabilities and mental strength to win the fight. This victory puts Font in prime position for an eventual shot at the title. Rob Font was recently asked about the same and if he thinks he is ready for it.

To this, the fighter replied, “Sure you know, obviously the belt you know they got to do that new match, they finally re-booked that Cory Sandhagen vs. TJ fight, that’s going to be amazing. I think that fight is going to be incredible.”

However, Font clearly does not want to get ahead of himself and talked about remaining patient.

“I think Cory Sandhagen might be the most dangerous guy in the division. TJ again, you know he’s a dog. He always brings it, you know, so I’m waiting to see how that plays out, and then obviously I’ll be patient for this. I’m in a good spot, four in a row, I’m in no rush.”

Rob Font says says he wants his performances to do the talking

From the television in the living room, the newspaper on the doorstep, the radio in the car to the computer at work, social media saturates our world. Therefore, every professional fighter is active on social media these days, as it is a way of connecting with their fans and expressing themselves.

Therefore, it seems strange to many that Rob Font has such little social media activity. While talking about this, Font said, “Yeah I mean, it’s just not really me, but you know it comes with the territory. We’ll see how it plays out. I’m not too worried about social media right now, you know talking and all that.”

Font clearly seems to believe that performances inside the ring matter much more than anything one does on social media. This is a rare quality that most fighters and sportsmen of today do not share. Therefore, this is something that would make Font a real competitor and someone to watch out for in the near future.
