In the other corner, Rob Font is a phenomenal volume boxer. The Boston native is extremely comfortable standing and trading from within the pocket. He’ll throw down with the best there is, having been in the octagon with the likes of Raphael Assuncao and Jose Aldo and living to tell the tale.

Font has the power to end this fight at a moment’s notice. As his nine career knockout victories attest, Fonts’ heavy hands have the power to swing a bout in his favor with just one punch.
However, Sandhagen’s unorthodox style should be just enough to throw Font off. The Colorado native is incredibly effective at countering from unorthodox angles. Look for Sandhagen to break down Font with a balanced, fundamental attack. His careful shot selection and counter-striking approach should lead to a decision victory.

Andrade vs Suarez Odds & Predictions
Jessica Andrade is an incredibly durable fighter. Having battled in the Octagon with the likes of Joana Jedrzejczyk, Rose Namajunas, and Valentina Shevchenko she’s also exceedingly experienced. After all, UFC Fight Night: Sandhagen vs Font will be Andrade’s 25th appearance on a UFC fight card. She’s a grizzled vet.
On the other side of the cage stands Tatiana Suarez, who is actually a year older than Andrade but has just nine professional bouts to her name. That being said, Suarez is undefeated in the Octagon. She’s also finished three of her last four opponents in impressive fashion.
Once Tatiana Suarez takes you down, she has multiple ways to finish. Rewind to her D'Arce choke submission in the TUF 23 final, securing her UFC contract.

Additionally, Suarez is moving down a weight class to battle Andrade at 115 pounds. Thus, she should have the strength and size advantage entering UFC Fight Night: Sandhagen vs Font’s co-main event.
While Andrade is the far more experienced fighter, she’s looked sluggish in her last two bouts. She’s also struggled against larger wrestlers her entire career. Suarez’ grappling advantage should put this fight out of reach quickly. Look for Tatiana Suarez to nail Andrade to the mat and win this one via submission in our UFC Fight Night picks.
Andrade vs Suarez Pick: Tatiana Suarez to win (-425), Under 2.5 rounds (-210)
